“Anonymous was a Woman”…

January 29, 2020 0 Comments

…and still is – far too often. The book was a gift from a friend back in the 80s when I was learning to quilt. I treasured it and gave copies to a cadre of good friends with whom I shared a passion for ‘antiquing’ – scavenging the markets of Lancaster County. A quick read […]

What’s in a Name?

June 26, 2019 0 Comments

It turns out a lot, even if you aren’t unfortunate enough to be “A Boy Named Sue”. “It’s that name that helped to make you strong… And I think about him now and then, every time I try & every time I win.” I share that sentiment! It was a bitterly cold Sunday afternoon in […]

Meet Stephen Henderson…Ruach Music

June 16, 2019 0 Comments

If you’d asked him a decade ago when he was 13-years-old what he wanted to be when he grew up – he probably wouldn’t have said entrepreneur. If you’d asked him where he wanted to live when he grew up  – he might have said right here. That’s the joy of having watched the rise […]

That which abides… a barometer for love & startups

June 11, 2019 0 Comments

Coincident to marking a decade in Ireland last November, a colleague introduced me to a startup he’d joined as a co-founder. Frankly, in spite of my longstanding enthusiasm for all bright and shiny new things – I was far less intrigued and excited – and considerably more cynical than I would have been ten years […]

…or back to business as usual in our “Grey Town“. All aboard! We’re on the road to the polls Friday – and just for one day – ordinary citizens are driving. By Monday next, we’ll know if we Irish have collectively stepped up and chosen our own Road to Damascus… …or as in C.S Lewis’ […]

Coffee Klatches, Consciousness-Raising & Water Coolers…

So what do they have in common? They remind us that there really is “nothing new under the sun”. And the sentiment itself is ancient – Ecclesiastes 1:9 – written nearly a thousand years BCE. “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the […]

On Memoir as a Call to Action…

September 22, 2018 0 Comments

So what’s a memoir? It’s simply a tool – and it’s best described by Julia Cameron – who created it: “The Memoir is a weekly exercise that builds upon itself. You will divide your life into sections; as a rule of thumb, divide your age by twelve, and this is the number of years you […]

August 15, 2018 1 Comment

A simple latin phrase. Generally, it refers to work undertaken, voluntarily, for the public good. For our purposes, we’re setting out a space for storytelling. It too is undertaken, voluntarily, for our collective good. Here we will explore what’s legal vs. equitable in Ireland today. A wise mentor has suggested that while the recent movement […]

‘Babies for Sale’…the danger of spectacle vs. news

July 19, 2018 0 Comments

Once again, we in Ireland are distracted from the critical issues of the day – by the spectacle of outrage at historic wrongs. Where’s the outrage at our government’s failure to cope with current crisis after crisis? Does anyone in Ireland share what I experienced in 2012 when I first read about our shock and […]

Because nothing changes until we cease to view our neighbours as them and we as us. Take for example the aftermath of one hearing before the Orieachtas. Padraic Kissane – the gently determined, brave and caring Financial Advisor who encouraged four of his tracker mortgage clients to step forward and testify before the Finance Committee. […]
