I leave markings on the wall. I write books and magazine articles about the popular history of Western Canada from the point of view of a guy (me) who lived and worked in Ireland until he was 23, came to Canada for a bit of craic, tried his hand at different things (including playing piano in bars and reading news on the radio), and eventually found his calling as a newspaper reporter; as a chronicler of the passing parade.
