the meaning of life…

''who's the best uncle...''

Todays post is a happy one. A very happy one.

Life [2 lives that is] is good.

The meaning of life, the true meaning, of that is, is being held in my arms.

Ladies and gentlemen may I introduce my two very newest nieces Molly [born 7lbs 2oz] and Lucy [born 5lbs 9oz] 31st October 2008. Mom, Dad and the twins are all doing very well.

I’m also a Godfather for the very first time.Isn’t it amazing how something so small can put it all in perspective.

Life is good… 🙂

A note on horticulture and whilst I’m, in the poetic mood… Tomorrow, November 15th in Trinity College Dublin [The Edmund Burke Lecture Theatre – Arts Block] from 2pm – 5pm Celebrate The Poetry of Plants featuring ‘renowned garden experts and authors’. The event is free – but – one must book in advance. To do so call [quickly] 01-8963174 or email

    They’re beautiful! Congratulations Congratulations!

    I’d love to hear the poetry but will be on the other side of the country tomorrow. You didn’t say if you’ll be attending–or reading?
