I don’t know whether the Holy Spirit has descended on me or I’m simply going through a mid-life crisis but this past seven years have been strange.
I took up writing in 2006. Mostly short stories.
In 2007 I had my Awakening. The world, both visible and invisible, both material and spiritual has never looked the same since. Took up guitar that year also.
In 2008 I wrote a stage play which won an award (a small one) here in Ireland.
2009 I gave up smoking and ran my first marathon – that was a year to remember.
2010 was spent trying to run faster.
2011, faster still. Loving it!
In 2012 through 2013 I started a movement to show people in Ireland how easy it is to stand up to unfair taxes. Some got it, more didn’t. Laziness was a condition I hadn’t factored into the equation.
2014 I want to concentrate on writing if I can.
I envy (in a good way) those who make a living from their hobby/passion.
I love life, all the ups and downs, and people, all sorts of them.
I don’t do many quotes but here’s one from a man who has been a top advisor to top men. It’s from 1970, the year i was born. I’m still here and so is he. “The challenge for goverments in the future will be to prevent man from effectively discovering his true self. And keeping humanity locked in consumerist materialism.”
If I was to be granted one wish in my lifetime it would be the opposite of the above quote.
Thank you for reading
