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 […]

An Election Day Road Trip; Ireland to Damascus…

May 21, 2019 0 Comments

…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 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 will […]

Pro Bono Publico – Tell us your story

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 […]

Why we tell these stories…

July 1, 2018 0 Comments

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. […]

Dear Daddy…

June 17, 2018 0 Comments

I miss you. And Happy Father’s Day. I miss your sense of humour, your wisdom and the very un-Irish, Talmudic way you drove home your messages, with questions. And yet, even selfishly, I’m not inclined to “wish you were here”. The world you imagined has not yet materialised. How lovely it would have been had your […]
