A Green Desert Father Vol.12 - Bearers Of The Ancient Future
In March 2013, Richard Mc Sweeney, a self-originating lyrical philosopher of Éire brought out a 794-paged hardback titled A Green Desert Father having as its subtitle Philosophical converse of an Árd Rí (High King) of Ireland. This contemporary collectable is a chronologically compiled anthology dating from January 2011 to February 2013 of original narratives, poems, fictional dialogues, and scenic photographs. It boldly addresses several universal themes such as love, freedom, morality, human trafficking, children and spousal abuse, religion, politics, fanaticism, prophecy, cosmology, art, fashion, music, and the esoteric.
There are conversations in it with for instance Anne Boleyn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Matthias Stormberger, Michel de Nostredame, Edgar Cayce, James Joyce, Joseph Goebbels, Greta Garbo, The Congregatio pro Doctrina Fidei, Dalai Lama, The Holy Qur’an, Angela Merkel, Al-Waleed al-Saud, Anne Sinclair, and Patrick Stewart just to name a few.
Aside from being a cosmopolitan work it is a one of a kind personal social commentary on early 21st century Ireland as it contains over seventy pages devoted exclusively to the author’s historic and courageous bid to become the 9th President of Ireland.
The entire work is being made available exclusively here on Shopify in 13 short volumes. The scenic photographs of the print work are not included.
This 12th volume contains nine make-believe conversations: six with self, and one each with President Barack Obama, Alan Shore - a character in the television series Boston Legal, and Professor Richard Dawkins. Each one was inspired and composed simultaneously in one sitting.

“I had myself the other day a thought, Richard
on the way women are so much the wiser than
we men tend to be.
Are you talking about all women, Alan or just
the few that are in your immediate work vicinity?
There is I must admit, Richard nothing
to the ordinary out of the extraordinary
when it comes to my thought thinking.
Let me give you an example which will well
serve the purposes of our case to hand a jury stand.
There was a time in my life, Richard when I did not
let my eyes roam; shall we say to fine curvatures
walking all in fragrance as any a fresh May morn.
And it was a sad me, I must then admit to have to say,
it now being considered in the hinder view of yesterday.
I much prefer the present me.
In what way to say, Alan?
I am now much more down to earth divine, Richard.
Now, I allow my eyes to enjoy the sweet pleasure
of roaming; my words the delight of thyme flavouring,
n’ my body the comfort of cosy intimacy.
My modus operandi is in being myself; in being
who I am culturing myself to be.
I like being the me I am becoming.
What about you, Richard?
I am always n’ everywhere being
selves of myself; selves of our selves.
That is plural you.
I like that Richard, for it shows
a sense of well being n’ depth in the appreciation
n’ understanding of the whose we may very well be.
Alan, what is it to have fun in living?
It is, Richard to be fully alive.
I have no time to be living partially dead.
It neither suits my body nor my head.
The life that is me, Richard is the life that is to be
lived, n’ that living must be on my own terms:
in accordance with my weaknesses n’ strengths.
Take for instance . . .” To alpine thought flights!
