Slainte from Bern (Switzerland)

Postby Padraic » Wed Dec 23, 2009 9:07 pm

Hi there

my name is patrick. but all of my friends and family calling me pad, pat, paddy! (since i can remember) some other names one cannot translate from swissgerman to english...
i love my name, because it's an typically irish name...
and there are a lot and a lot of different writing forms of it !

i'm 35 years old, i'm livin in the capitol city of switzerland in Bern!
i'm gay and in a relationship almost 11 years!
i work as a social-worker in a childrens home. the kids are suffering from learning-disabilities, they have problems with social-behaviour and/or some of them coming from a psychiatric-clinic...

my hobbies are ireland, the celts, music... (too much to mention)
i'm a singer in a band and thats the best of all my hobbies..
i'm practise reiki (I+II), healing stones therapy and bachflower therapy.
i'm interessted in spiritual topics and would say about myself, i'm spiritual.
i'm very inspired by the teachings of "White Eagle" and love the companionship with those like-minded-people.
so i'm visiting often the "White Eagle Lodge" Switzerland in Langnau.

what's more to say?
ah yes...

hm. first time i heard a song from clannad, i was about 9 years old...
it was on radio... years and years, i cannot forget the tune... but i wasn't able to find out, which track or which artist it was...
but someday, back in 1999, i heard "saltwater" from chicane on a party...
i can't believe it! this tune! it was that tune i was searching for almost 19 years... ! (yeah it's a bit exaggerated)
to be honest, from now on it takes only 10 days, to buy ALL Clannad and ALL Máire Albums... and since then, i'm a fan !!!!

so, i do not know what more to say... but hey, feel free to ask me...

wish you all a merry christmas and a happy new year...
hope to hear, see or read from some of you soon...

Hi Pat, welcome to the forum! It's nice to read a bit about you :) I hope you enjoy it here.

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
