April 10     FEELING TEMPLES     I failed to appreciate the initial onslaught of feelings.  I spent much time trying to capture them, lock them away, or in some other way submarine them.  This only had the effect of retarding my recovery.  I had to reframe my...

March 25     THE ORDER   I can’t expect delivery if I haven’t placed the order.  I never seem to know what I want until after I have accepted something else.  I can remember thinking order meant procedure not procurement---set the table, not end my hunger.  I focused...

I've been reading Brian Christian's the Most Human Human, and it is one of the most insightful books I have ever read. I highly recommend it.

I went up to the attic in search of bedding for the beagle. Given the fact that he usually eats his own bedding I was careful to try and pick out something durable but there was nothing there apart from a nice long cushion that I bought in the Celtic Tiger days, an Italian number, with shades of...

  Oh the land of Ireland is so beautiful on a November morning at 7 a.m. The mist drifts in small wispy clouds above the green fields, lingers on the stone walls, kisses the reeds by the lakes, hugs the houses scattered in random out of the way places, squeezes itself like candyfloss into the...
