About

My name is George. Seoras, if you speak Gaelic. Born in the United States, German on my father’s side, a native of Bamberg, and a Stewart on my mother’s side from a wee parish outside Stirling. I am a keen learner, eager to travel the world around me, and an instructor of English with years of experience teaching in the US, Turkey, and Japan. In audiobook narration, I have discovered a perfect opportunity to perform and play with languages, dialects, characters, cultures. Essentially, my voice is my livelihood, and my spirit longs to explore.

  2. Thank you George for stopping in and liking my post on Glorified Poison. I like your Bio…as a wife of an immigrant, married to him for longer than we were both single, I watched him grow and do see a bit of the ‘search for what’s beneath’ in him. Best of luck, a very nice site you have here.

  3. Strangely enough, I too have a borrowed name. When my folks split up at thirteen, I believed my first name (Zane) came from Zane Grey, the western writer. about thirteen years later, after reconnecting, I said something about it. He told me that wasn’t why. He said there was an oilman in Ohio or Pennsylvania who bore that name,; and his business partners all met mysterious ends. I did some looking, and it seems the story was misremembered.
    I was named after an imaginary criminal. 🙂

    • Perhaps not the most auspicious naming, Zane, but it makes for a helluva story. And I am sure you bear the name well. Certainly better than the imaginary criminal.

      • I actually like this origin for my naming over the one I assumed for years. It is sort of liberating as I get to define myself; and, if you read much of my blog, you’ll see that I do bear the original intent well.

  5. Hi George! I am just saying thank you for the great comments on my blog, and (although I am pretty sure you avoid the awards thing as much as possible), I have nominated you for the Reader Appreciation Award…you don’t have to do anything with it but look at the pretty flower–it is a virtual bouquet of appreciation for your support, if you will 🙂

    • Indeed, Maggie, I am currently in SLC, although I long to be elsewhere. No offence intended to all my neighbors here. I just know that I am not supposed to be here. I am waiting. And hoping.

  7. “Life expands through Learning and Discovery. Occasionally I feel compelled to share these experiences–or at least my Expression of them–through Writing or Verse.”

    Well said! I feel the same way — compelled! 🙂
    I like that you shared some things about your heritage. It’s amazing how your blog is identified with the feminine side of your background, Gaelic Dreams, like you named your feminine aspect of the mind (the unconscious/subconscious). It’s powerful also because that literally is your maternal side as well.

    I have to say you and your wife look so in love, it’s warm to see. Congratulations.

    Peace & Love from my part of the world to yours.

    • So very kind of you to say, Lila. Thank you for all of this. Before my mother passed away, she was a dear friend to me, a kind, loving mother who committed herself to providing the safest home and sweetest life for her family, but, growing up in the US, she never had a chance to explore Scotland for herself. I wish she could have. Her Gaelic spirit would have been enthralled by all of its beauty.

      • You’re most welcome! She sounds wonderful, and it’s heartwarming to hear of a good bond between mother and child, always. 🙂 Sweet that you had a dear friend in her. I hear lots of great things about Scotland. I only seen it in pictures, you’re both lucky! 🙂

        I just realized how funny it is that I’m in Nova Scotia “New Scotland.” Hah. I do love it here ^.^ feel lucky too.

    • Nice. Always interesting for me to see names pronounced in different cultures. I had no idea early in life that the name George even existed in so many cultures. My mother is a Stewart, one of the great old clans of Scotland (although largely of Norman/French heritage, like many Scots are outside of the Highlands). If my father had stayed in Germany, I would have been Georg Waltrapp. These disparate journeys that take us and our ancestors around the world astonish me.
