Goodbye Fair City

I leave Dublin today after working in the Fair City since spring.

Many thanks to the psychologists I’ve worked with and learnt so much from, and the people of Dublin for their kind hospitality.

The picture is taken from Sandycove Harbour, looking out across Dun Laoghaire and Dublin Bay.

Only a few hundred yards from where this photo was taken is a tower where James Joyce stayed for several nights until his medical student housemate, Oliver Gogarty, shot at him with a gun.

The tower sets the scene for beginning of Joyce’s novel Ulysses, known for its ‘stream of consciousness’ narrative – a technique first borrowed from psychology by writer May Sinclair.
