Staring At Lakes
By any reasonable standards, Michael Harding has made a success of his life. The former priest's CV includes published novels, plays staged at the Abbey Theatre and an ongoing column in the Irish Times. He is still married to a sculptor he first met at the Annaghmakerrig artists' retreat in 1984, where he introduced himself with the simple declaration: "I think I love you."
