About Me

I love the outdoors, probably because I've spent so much time in the office. My favorite pastime is taking my dogs to the beach and walking them through the dunes. My wife and I live with two Jack Russels called Luna and Terra. (If anyone ever tells me that animals have no souls I've just gotta look at these two guys to know just how wrong they are.)

Where I live (Ireland) has experienced a real economic boom in recent years. If I'm honest I've benefited from that boom as much as anyone. In the last few years though, I've started to question if it's been worth it. The sand dunes that I used to walk my dogs through have become golf courses and closed to the public. Ancient forests have been destroyed to build shopping centers. The once green valleys are being blighted with incinerators to destroy the glut of waste from our excessive lifestyles.

People have bigger houses and bigger salaries, but they're deeper in debt and spend less time at home. Their days begin when it's still dark. They travel for hours, to work for longer than their parents did. It's dark too when they return home. So you have to ask, is it really worth destroying our environment for this new lifestyle? A lifestyle that we have no time to live.

There has to be a better way!
