Dublin Revisited

Just over a year ago I returned from Ireland. For me this is so recent that I could just as well still be there, but I’m not. I could just step out of my Irish Sea red brick sea-facing house (in which I rented a small apartment), jump on a bus and be in the city centre in about 12 minutes flat, traffic depending, but I can’t. I could just take a stroll up to the local Dart station and […]

Authentic Treedom

People are like trees. Depending on the forest, they are all similar, yet different. In very many forests the trees are so similar that the odd trees really stand out. These are the trees we are drawn to, to find shade under, or talk to, or confide in, or share our dreams and thoughts with. Often it’s just good to know that there are trees which can be trusted to be different. In most forests authentic growth is not permitted. […]

Exploring Experience – Part 3 [Extract]

The pathfinder is standing in front of the open gates to the city. The walls are thick and high and cannot be scaled. It makes him wonder why there are no guards. Such defences, yet the doors are wide open.  A signpost just inside of the entrance reads: “Please Disarm”. Well, I hardly have any armour left anyway”, he thinks to himself and passes through the long gateway. Once through, he finds himself in a circular lane, bending slightly inwards, […]

Let me tell you an Irish story

DUBLIN I arrived on a shoestring and found this little youth hostel on top of Doran’s Pub in Marlborough Street. It was downtown North Side, the area was seedy, but the place was affordable and reasonably clean.
