I woke up in the suburbs of Limerick, this January morn feeling happy. I had a day of activity planned. That’s the beauty of suburban Limerick (or suburban anywhere I suppose). If you want interesting times and experiences, then you need to plan them.
My day’s activities were relatively modest. Continue reading A day alone
I am clearly in a Village People state of mind, with the 2nd post in a row borrowing from their oeuvre.

First rehearsal of my magnus opus completed. Continue reading Glamour, drama, tragedy…
