IT’S A RAP

Friday 1 May 2015

Paul Allen PR and Me in Galway.
Somewhere between where I started and right now you caught my eye. Now all I can see is the distance between you and me.

The evening sun streams into my courtyard. Sitting on a large rattan chair, sipping my latte, feeling the sun’s dying heat on my face and the cool breeze on my shoulders, I am absorbed in the stillness of the skyline. Life, for that brief moment, is suspended.

I hear my iPad, nestled by my side on the chair, ping. I glance at my email inbox; the new message is from my solicitor, telling me Paul Allen has paid up the money owed in accordance with the court agreement. It’s the end of the road, the last page of our tempestuous ‘love’ story.

For a few minutes, I am elated. Suddenly, caught off guard, my eyes well up with tears as I am wrenched back into the memory of the breakup, of the battle.

This is a watercolor painted in 2005 by Irish artist Nick Miller. It was exhibited at the Rubicon Gallery in 2006 as part of the Standing, Sitting, Lying exhibition of nudes by the artist.

Taken from an article  Irish Independent:  “I knew his portrait would be more abstract than glamorous and I liked that. It was also a great way to see exactly how an artist works.”

Out of Court Settlement

Paul Allen PR and I faced each other in Court on Tuesday December 16 2014. Here is the report on the outcome.

Paul Allen PR-  report Sunday Times December  21 2014.
Paul Allen PR- report Sunday Times December 212014.

“For the last couple of years I have been in a tumble dry cycle – hurled around, hitting against the sides of drum, erratically lacerated, mangled, being knocked and jolted about some more, not knowing how bloody long the cycle would continue for or where the next blow would come from. Then suddenly, intermittently, the cycle stops. I violently jolt to a screaming halt…………. I am knocked senseless by it; the trauma is so great, it’s unrelenting.
