Patrick the writer is 57 years old, and has read and written since his earliest memories. The reading outstripped the writing, and living and feeling outstripped both. Now, at the age of slow memory and clear answers to life’s complexities, the writer wants to try and record living, feeling and thinking. Most of all he hopes to record the wonderful familiarity and connection with the people of this place, no matter where or how they live. Equality and compassion, spread wide in language and life…if he can, he will.
