The Ultimate Problem-Solver
One is lucky to know a person who can fix one's car, or a person who can fix one's computer (even if that woman is in India); and watching a professional trouble-shooter in action is as good in value as watching a skilled musician or a class sportsman doing their thing. But one extends the paradigm into human affairs and human relations at one's peril?
On Saturday morning in The Mansion House I sat through two speeches: one given by Colm O'Gorman on the theme of change; the other given by Pat Seager on the See Change initiative, "a national program working to reduce the stigma linked with mental health problems." Afterwards I eschewed the soup and sandwiches on offer; crossed Dawson Street to Milano; revived my spirits with Canneloni, Apple Juice, Dolcetti Tartufo al Ciocco. After a little shopping in Grafton Street I returned to Connolly station travelling part of the way on The Luas. While I was waiting in Connolly for the 15.20 Enterprise I counted in the little yellow red and green See Change leaflet how many times the word "problem" or "problems" was mentioned. If it was not 24 it was 25!
