“Here was a light behind the despair, beyond the darkness. At first a flicker of an ember, just a tiny pin-prick of dawning possibilities. Then burning slowly, brightly and bigger, a glimmer, a candle in the blackness of despair, which gave off just enough of a glow (luminescence?) to light a path. And so show us the way ahead… a path to endless possibilities…from the darkness into the eternal light.”

The Day that Changed my Life: Fifty Years On!

“Life is what happens in between making other plans.”

– John Lennon

from http://www.livingwithheadinjury.wordpress.com and http://www.lifeisgodsnovel.wordpress.com

My racing dream may have died that dramatic day fifty years ago, yet in due course new dreams,new horizons beckoned

‘Non, je ne regrette rien!’

I don’t regret anything in my  “rather eventful little life”. I have been truly blessed,

so I hope to pass some of that on to others.

from https://headbraininjury.wordpress.com/2014/08/03/an-open-book-3-my-story/

“I believe if we are blessed, we can and should pass this on by being a blessing to others. For me, true success is helping, encouraging and supporting others, as many people as possible, to grow, to flourish in their own lives.”

For dearest dad and mom, thanks for all the support, encouragement and especially love in pursuing new dreams on another course

YOU can be “a champion of hope“, “a ray of sunshine in a very dark sky”

to others  (stuck in the often very dark corners of life’s journey)
