Welcome! A few years ago, I discovered an application that artists employ in their works to bring cultural awareness to their audiences. Having discerned this semiotic theory that applies to literature, music, art, film, and the media, I have devoted the blog, "Theory of Iconic Realism" to explore this theory. The link to the publisher of my book is below. If you or your university would like a copy of this book for your library or if you would like to review it for a scholarly journal, please contact the Edwin Mellen Press at the link listed below. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Blindness


 Below is a poem I wrote a few years ago. I took the photograph whilst driving south of Dublin, lost and 'blind' to the correct pathway to a professional conference at I.A.D.T. in Dun Laoghaire. Thanks to a few gentlemen at Dunphey's Pub and their fine directions with a hand-drawn map, I was able to make it to the afternoon panels. Having learned my lesson, the following day, I took the bus.

Blind
A blinding
moves her
to close the blind
shielding her
from brilliance
Outside-
the hour of dusk
palpitates
with a creative verve
releasing gold
Within-
a beam expands
that cannot blind
for Memory
sustains the weakest eye.
