Called after my Grandfather Michael Comyn KC (Judge Senator see RIA Dictionary of Biography); and having lived with my cousin, Sir James Comyn QC, on two separate stages in my life, age 5 and age 19, I would often jest with JJ and my Mum that this man, Peter Comyn, once a JP, must be connected to our family; he is definitely related through the Macnamara’s who were married into my family through both my grandfather and grandmother, Marcella Blake-Forster. Epigenetics may cause the void that this synopsis of a man’s horrid experience of execution may be the reason I feel he was wronged. He is buried where, Michael, James, Eleanor Rose (my mum) and other Comyns are buried at Bishop’s Quarter, Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare.

Aphantasia post Traumatic Brain Injury; added to being Bipolar with entrenched anxieties. “The People without a Mind’s Eye” ie Living without mental imagery. For me, I had this and have tried for nearly 30 years now to understand what happened within my brain resulting from a fractured skull that changed me significantly from the person I was, who was emotional and had a vivid imagination.

This explains so much but most importantly why my rehabilitation is so dependent on the computer, social media, reading and of course sleeping. A dark mind harbouring a fear that once upon time you were a dreamer is deeply disturbed … Continue reading

“Legislator in New York is introducing a law that would tax companies for the revenue they earn on data…..” Ireland: We host and give exceptionally favourable corporate tax rates to Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and others who made vast profits especially for their “owners”; and we must add, in COVID-19 2020 Pandemic Year. We too give so much of our personal data for free to these Tech Magnets who will use it to earn vast sums of capital going forward. “Data” is the new oil or gold. They know it but the truth is so do we? Let us start now by being active and seeking a value to be paid for our content and this should include Twitter content also. The article below is published in Fast Company. I often wonder what the value of my content would be if it entered the market arena and had a financial value. We were basically conned into giving up our data for free and now we are addicted especially to the smartphones and computers; it is the dopamine hit that creates the addiction.
