My Brother Mark, A Son of Eire

My big brother Mark comes to me in songs.

Clannad’s “Harry’s Theme” will spontaneously come on when I think of him, if I have satellite radio on. He was brilliant and beautiful. So this St Patrick’s Day, I think of my brother, Mark. We Irish can be brilliant lights, but tend to find a beauty in sadness, methinks.

I will go east and go west
From whence came
The moon and the sun

The moon and the sun will go
And the young man

With his reputation behind him
I will go wherever he came from –
The young man with his reputation behind him

His birthday was on March 1st. If it wasn’t for my brother Mark, I would not be who I am today. He turned me on to music, to the arts, to science, to science fiction and Star Trek. To exploring the unseen worlds within our Universe. To spirituality and not religion.  

He was a huge influence on turning my natural inclination to the exploration of the higher realms of thought into something tangible I could bring into my life. I would explore his room as a child and find the books that lead me on paths that made me who I am today.

I owe a lot to him.

Smart, funny, extremely talented. In his younger years, he was the prettiest of us all. All that I can do well, he could do better. Guitarist, musician, artist, gardener, chef, actor, dancer. He wrote songs and sang them. He wanted to boldly go where no man had gone before.  He was willing and able to see in our world and those worlds beyond us what others could not.

He was a true son of Eire.
