LL interview -Margaret McInerny

Margaret McInerney

Margaret , I've been a fan of yours via your insta stories (@margaret_mcinerney )for awhile , and its fitting that when we finally met , it was in the West of Ireland, which we both adore. So many things to talk about! I want to cover a lot of ground while I have you in one spot.

Do you set resolutions in January? Ive tried to set a theme for this year for a change . No one has noticed I must not be egging it hard enough.

The problem with resolutions is (obviously) follow through. I gave up resolutions for “intentions” which I renewed throughout the year. BUT NOW.  .  .  I call it Life EditTM

Life Editing is about adding or subtracting things from your life. Think of your life, your activities, and even your time (how you spend your day) like a proofreader or film editor — DELETE — or leave on the cutting room floor the things that aren’t working for you. Tweak the bejesus out of the phrasing. Fine tune your life. It’s a process. 

I like your idea of a theme. Much less pressure than a resolution. On my birthday one year my theme was “FINISH IT!” Because I used to start projects and then abandon them. 

Thats so good. Since this interview I've assigned a theme a month for 2020 and will now weave in your top tips above .

 Do you have a morning routine?

- Wake up (around 7 am). 

  • Super cold face wash to wake up. (Or a cold cloth from freezer.) 
  • Ridiculously strong coffee with loads of cream. 
  • Sit down and write — just a bit. I read a piece by Orwell, “why I write” and I stole his technique of describing where he is, what he sees, sounds. That loosens up the mind to blather on about life  or DARE I SAY FEELINGS for at least 3 pages. I use a Moleskine journal or Leuchtturm — with dot or grid pattern. (Yes, I’m a nut.) 
  • Two days a week I lift weights at a gym. 
  • Then the rest of the day is fast and loose and up in the air,   

It sounds perfect. I know we both oddly love cold water.

 Margaret, I think it’s fair to say that you’re a bit of an adventurer. I think this is as much true for your approach to every day life as much as it is true geographically! You seem up for it all. a)Where do get this from? And b) did you pass it on to your children?

I am not chained to a regular job which requires my presence in an office — so, I have time for adventures. After my husband died in 2014 — which was terribly inconsiderate of him — I felt unmoored, unattached, uncommitted, drifting. I needed to be somewhere there was no memory of him. A place where no one knew my story. Why sit around and wallow in loss when there is a glorious world to see. And so I began my travels.  

How did I get my attitude? 

  1. I come from a long line of strong women! Our mother was 75 when our father died and in her remaining 15 years on this earth she crushed widowhood — She lived alone in northern Minnesota in a cottage in the woods. She graduated from college with a BA in studio arts. She was a printmaker and potter. At 85 she moved to the city and started a business with my daughter, Meghan—she designed and sewed the sweetest aprons and Meghan made an Etsy site for her. Her superpower was “making something out of nothing.” With 9 children she learned how to improvise and go with the flow. Her mother, my grandmother, was equally resourceful and strong-willed. 
  2. My children watch and learn! We always told them, “change is good!” It’s kind of like jumping off the pier into the ice cold water. Just embrace it. They improvise, bob and weave on a daily basis. They’re all managing jobs / families so their adventures are mainly domestic. 

Its funny how DNA can be a superpower or a curse isnt it?

Are you a morning or a night person? When are you most productive? Is it even important to be productive ? I’ve noticed a common theme for awhile now - that we should all be doing less? (And aquiring less, which makes sense)

 How does that sit with you? I dislike it  by my very nature, I always want to do more. Its  a hard  feeling to shake?.I totally get it  with regards to possesions though. 

Ha. I’d LOVE to be that woman who rises at 5 am and goes to the gym. But, I’m not. Having children once required early rising for all the obligations of raising children but now I’m totally flexible. Up early when it’s required. Sleep in when needed. 

Productivity. What a topic! I was a Project Manager for many years and it’s almost IMPOSSIBLE to turn off that task-oriented side of my brain. I’m productive when I have  something worthwhile to produce. We’re women — it’s in our DNA to get shit done! 

The “less is more” movement makes sense on so many levels: Sustainability. Financial. Spiritual. Fewer things: YES! They can weigh you down. And in the end you can’t take it with you. (Apologies to Kaufman & Hart!). 

I spent a few days at Glenstal Abbey and the monks KNOW HOW TO LIVE! A completely curated environment. Simple. Elegant. I am eager to incorporate “Monastic Minimalism” in my apartment. 

You told me about that , what an antidote that must be for anything that ales you . I know you have a gra for Ireland- what are your 3 favourite things about life here? 

Only three? I could go on and on. Someone, quick, stop me!

  • The landscape feeds my soul. The west, especially. I like to just drive along coast roads and am often overwhelmed with emotion. Seriously, I HAVE CRIED MULTIPLE TIMES IN MY CAR! The GD ocean and mist hanging on the hills just kills me!
  • Graveyards
  • Holy Wells
  • Boreen walks
  • Guinness & whiskey — “I’ll have a Guinness and a b-b-b-baby Powers.” (ala my current favorite Irish writer, Kevin Barry.)

In general , is your life panning out as you planned, or has their been any change in course?

Another, HAHA. My late husband and I weren’t planners. We made a lot of quick decisions but (mostly) things turned out well. Out of necessity, I worked. I had a job that turned into a career. 

There are ALWAYS course corrections! Life & death are unpredictable. 

Yes and there is something so satisfying when you can turn a job into a career.

Margaret you have 4 grown children- is your work done there or are you still trying to make improvements? Its a hard one isn’t it?One of my New Years resolutions last year was to offer no unsolicited advice to my son.  I hinted sometimes but can say I kept it. This year I'm broadening that out (this is harder than it sounds). 

UGH. Parenting Adult Children — there should be some courses on this topic. It is more of Relationships with Adult Children and it’s hard to stop being “Mother Knows Best.”

But, my work there is done. None of them are in jail, all are interesting, kind, funny, and challenging humans. 

AGREE — don’t offer unsolicited advice. Our mission as parents to adults is to live our OWN life to the absolute fecking limit! And let them in on the fun if they want to ride along. 

I have a one son and I’m always curious — do mothers who have more than one child have favourites ? How does that work?

OF COURSE WE HAVE FAVORITES! My *Favourite* changes depending on who helps me out the most. I have small refrigerator magnets for all my children (and their spouses) and a “winner’s circle”. The favorite of the day / week / month changes frequently. 

OMG thats so good. A winners circle. Being competitve in nature I would tried to win this everyday! or else I would completly rebel and never enter the circle! I can only hope it keeps them all on their A-game constantly.

You have a beautifully curated Instagram page (@margaret_mcinerny) where  did you learn to take such professional yet thoughtful artistic pictures? You seem to be that rare bird that has equal left brain right brain access.

Thank you! Anything one posts to the world should be about quality rather than quantity! Many years ago I was a Studio Manager for Arndt & Berthiaume photography. They were advertising / editorial / fashion shooters in Minneapolis. I scheduled shoots, booked models and stylists and watched them produce great work. Probably my favorite job ever. 

Ive always thought you could also be a proffessional window dresser - what I consider to be the ultimate  creative job .

Career wise, can you tell us where you started out?

I started working in the ad biz at 26 (I’m 70 so you can do the math) — I was a “paste-up artist” for the Target Corporation in Minneapolis — this was in the dark ages BEFORE computers! Ha. How did we create without them! One job led to another — managing the photo studio, working at a small arts newspaper, freelancing as a Production Artist at various design shops. I ended up as Director of Project Management at two large Ad Agencies in Minneapolis. Managing creative teams  is a lot like adult day care! 

(Actually no, I can't do the math ...)

What are you looking forward to this year?

My trip to Vietnam with my son Paddy in March. We are traveling with some former U.S. Marines on a tour that will be relevant to my late husband’s service in Reconaissance. 

I cant wait to hear about that. I would love to go to Vietnam plus I am obsessed with all things US Marines. Talk about the ultimate entourage !Talk about  a group that have skillsets!

I bought a ticket for Borris House Festival this coming June. 

Also — being productive (HA) with printmaking, sewing and maybe painting for my own amusement!

Mom! What a great interview. It was a delight to read and I cried a little, too. Also, it was generous of you to say that your job with the four of us is done.

Margaret, I am one of your “gentle readers” from Instagram. I found you through Nora though I am closer in age to you. You inspire me to be more creative and adventurous. I too am learning and re-learning how to parent adult children. It’s no easy task to just keep quiet or say “that sounds wonderful” while chewing the inside of your cheek. But life has a way of working out, even when it feels like it’s all upside down and scary. I look forward to following along on your next adventures.

My names are Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we now have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fix Email: Urgentspellcast@gmail.com or Urgentspellcast@yahoo.com see more reviews about him on his website: http://urgentspellcast.website2.me  and  https://urgentspellcast.wordpress.com/  WhatsApp: +1 (424) 330-8109
