Peace?

Can we give peace a chance? Anybody?

Socratic Depression

‘Have you ever thought’, Socrates said, leaning closer to me at the bar, ‘whether depression is the correct state of mind to exhibit in a world as disturbed as this?’

‘Time to go.’ I said. 

I left O’Briens then and thought about it on my way back to the office.

#Short Story Collection

Not for everyone but for discerning readers only, my first short story collection is a year old this month.

After numerous versions this is my favourite cover.

Purchase it here or here if you like philosophical stories that challenge the average.

Question to myself

I often wonder, can I cut
myself into my many interests and passions
to create good work?
Are they not one?
Yes.
All belong to the same stream.
I am that stream.
So as I write, I teach and philosophize.
As I teach, I write and philosophize.
And as I philosophize, I write and teach.
All belong to the same stream.
I am that stream.

-J.O’Brien
