Here’s another of my articles from the Irish Examiner’s Feelgood. Anyone who is inclined to ignore the petrol warning light might relate to this one! During the visit of the Beast from the East I read many examples of kindness, including one lady who volunteered to visit a stranger’s mother in hospital as her daughter … More There I am in the paper #58
For fear you think I was run over by a bus or have been dealing with an unspeakable family disaster, I’d like to assure you all is well in my world, although I can hear quite a number of you shaking your heads having not missed my posts for a moment.

My latest from the Irish Examiner’s Feelgood. You’d never guess my birthday was approaching when I wrote it? At what age do we become old? Is it an actual number or a state of mind? Anyone with children will know, regardless what age we are, they already consider us old. My aging began in my … More There I am in the paper #55
It’s been over three weeks since I confessed to the world I’m writing a book so here is update number one. I’m not sure I like writing a book! Ah, I’m only joking!

Last Thursday I posted this on my blog facebook page, I’m hoping my time for dreaming is over and I start ‘doing.’ Tomorrow I am going away for two nights with the ‘Inspiration Project.’ No it’s not a cult. It’s an opportunity to hang out with writers, be mentored by a writer, listen to a … More An Inspiring Weekend.
Another installment from my column in the Irish Examiner. Writing it only reminded me regardless of any new year resolutions, there’s little chance I’ll ever be a ‘good’ person. Just ask my brother. How many times a day must I remind myself that it’s been 2018 for twelve days already? Thank goodness we are no … More There I am in the paper #48

There are so many other things you should be doing.’ These are just some of the many less than helpful thoughts which are buzzing around my … More Silencing the voices within.
