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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Communication, Confusion & Irish-isms

July 13, 2018 0 Comments

The author, a fellow blow-in, and I have often discussed the challenges of understanding and being understood – even though before my arrival from America and his from England via Israel – we’d thought of English as our first language. Lest you think we exaggerate – I refer you to this “So You’ve Got an Irish Passport […]

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 […]

June 5, 2018 1 Comment

The question is posed by author and creativity consultant, Dan Zadra. His book has the look and feel of a child’s book, which leaves us open, available and curious. This book celebrates the “want to’s”, the “choose to’s” and the “I can’t wait to’s” in your life”. Whether you’re just finishing school, starting a new venture, celebrating […]

May 7, 2018 0 Comments

The Eighth Amendment to the Irish Constitution was added in 1983. The State acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother, guarantees in its laws to respect, and, as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right. In […]

Nothing changes until we do!

January 30, 2018 1 Comment

In a recent LinkedIn article, Ready for a Change? – I made the case for choosing change. On one level it’s selfish – I work with people and small businesses when they’re ready for a change. On another level it’s in service to those clients, neighbours and friends who require change in their wider worlds. […]

A Collage, A Vision Board & Action…

December 22, 2017 0 Comments

“It works if you work it” Simple tried and true – it’s an adage heard often in 12 Step fellowships. So what is a “Vision Board”? It’s a tool for creating authentic outcomes in our own, ideal life. And yes, they work. This Huffington Post article got my attention in early 2015: “The Reason Vision […]
