Alive With No Regrets

When my family departed here earlier this evening my brother’s wife remarked in passing, “I’m so glad you’re not dead.”

I could only reply, “Me too. It does free up the senses, doesn’t it?”

She looked at me and smiled and then they closed the door and it was another day here, just me here alone with my cat. Still not dead yet.

I Hear Your Music Playing Night and Day
by Dave O’Leary

Poetry and short prose about the musical life and the lost words of youth, about the places where love might be found or misplaced and dreams not quite made and celebrity encounters and being short on funds and the necessity of bus rides and bus stops and homes and the small moments that resonate and, of course, cats.

I Hear Your Music Playing Night and Day is “a great collection with a heaviness that sticks with you. Yet there’s a sense of levity and love, like hope, shining through…By the way, it reads very nicely while listening to Mad Season.”
Clint Brownlee, author of Pearl Jam’s Vs. (33 1/3, Volume 154)

“Here, Dave O’Leary lays down the truth of the matter – school days, bus days, days spent in Korea, days here at home in the United States, loves lost, life gained and just a touch – just a touch, mind you – of it all on the edge. Not every book is worth laying your hard-earned money for but, trust me, you can only come out a winner with Dave here. He’ll take you right through the eye of the beast and out the other side. And you’ll be glad you came.”
Will Mayo, author of The Shells Encasing Our Nothingness
