I very happily officially launched my first publication ‘From Wreck to Wonderful Wholeness’ on Saturday last; January 6th 2018, in the ‘Winding Stair’ bookshop on Ormond Quay in Dublin.  It was a great personal celebration for me and my book.  It was my babys baptism if you want to call it that, and it was a lovely day.  I choose January 6th, the feast of the Epiphany as the launch date, as that is what the book is celebrating; my own personal epiphany or awakening and my collaberation with God from there on in.

 

 

I wish to thank all that attended and supported me, and not just on the day itself, but on the run up to day also.  People were so kind with their well wishes and genuine warmth.  So a big thanks to all!  I especially wish to thank Bernadette Flanagan, author of ‘Embracing Solitude’, who endorsed the book for me, and her inspiring speech,which focused on women finding their voices in their unique contribution to spiritual experience.  She concluded with the following poem:

 

Caged Bird by Maya Angelou

A free bird leaps on the back of the wind

and floats downstream till the current ends

and dips his wing in the orange sun rays

and dares to claim the sky.

 

But a bird that stalks down her narrow cage

can seldom see through her bars of rage

her wings are clipped and her feet are tied

so she opens her throat to sing.

 

The caged bird sings with a fearful trill

of things unknown but longed for still

and her tune is heard on the distant hill

for the caged bird sings of freedom.

 

The free bird thinks of another breeze

and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees

and the fat worm waiting on a dawn bright lawn

and she names the sky her own…………..

 

The cageg bird sings with a fearful trill

of things unknown but longed for still

and her tune is heard on the distant hill

for the caged bird sings of freedom.

 

Bernadette Flanagan and myself on the day.

 

The day was a lovely end to the Christmas season and a great start to 2018!

Lastly, a huge thanks to the ‘Winding Stair’ staff who were great; thank you Christine and Maire. Everyone appreciated the bookshops authentic atmosphere that is Dublin’s ‘Winding Stair’.
