Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary, Ireland

Introspective ramblings, personal explorations and…other stuff.

Hallow Evening
It is important to understand the true meaning of Halloween and the reasons for the rituals we engage in so we can better understand ourselves, educate our folk and reclaim the knowledge and culture that has been lost to us…

Late, weary and weird
As a late bloomer, I often learn lessons too late to be of practical value. One of those is this: Japan is a weird place…

An American living in Japan
Unlike most self-hating white Americans eager to become a minority, I have actually lived as a minority in a non-white majority, non-Western country: Japan…

Proud to be American
The first Americans were not immigrants, they were explorers, adventurers and pioneers who built a rich and powerful nation out of the wilderness…

Not the right kind of immigrant for Ireland
Apparently, Ireland is not interested in welcoming home those of us in the diaspora, nor is it seeking people like me, who have a genuine interest in respecting, observing and perpetuating Irish culture…

The genius of George Romero
When there is no more room in hell, the dead will walk the Earth…

Japan: Reptilian colony?
I have come to the conclusion that if there are indeed reptilian shape-shifters hiding among us, Japan is lizard central…

Parenting on a hostile planet
The hardest part of parenting is that you have to figure it out on your own in a world increasingly hostile toward the traditional family…

A club of my own
There are few clubs to which I would belong or that would have someone like me as a member…

Embrace the confusion
In the current zeitgeist, objectivity is no longer valid. Everything is subjective. You’ve got to go on feeling. Do as I do, embrace the confusion…

How the Left convinced me they’re right
If nothing else, the Left has taught me that insults and violence are what turn enemies into allies. I have been convinced…

Adrift no longer
I finally understand what it means to be of European stock, and why it is so important that Europe remains the homeland of White people…

Yule: The Winter Solstice
The Christmas traditions we grew up with have absolutely nothing to do with Jesus or Christianity. They are from a much older Pagan festival called Yule…

On the outside looking in
Having lived for too long as an outsider, for the first time in my life, I know who I am, where I came from, and where I belong…

Dear corporate world: It’s not me, it’s you
If you don’t like this party, you’re not the only one. You’d be crazy not to want to run for the exit…

The soup odyssey
We had come this far, and there was only one course of action. We had to leave our dry, warm automotive cocoon, go inside and order in person. In our pajamas…

Laughs in translation
Among the many challenges of marrying someone who doesn’t share your language or culture is the fact that any joke predicated on a cultural reference typically falls flat on its face. It doesn’t matter how funny or accurate my observations are if the wife doesn’t know who Gopher from the Love Boat was—to begin with, she’s never even heard of the damn Love Boat…

Somewhere, I’m late for dinner
Is it possible we are living in an evil parallel universe..?

I know I don’t know what I don’t know, but do you?
Ignorance may be bliss, but it is also dangerous…
