About meWho am I?

Some who tries to live by these rules:

God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change…
Courage to change the things I can
And Wisdom to know the difference…

What have I done…

*Given a voice to the disposed homeless
*Defended the dignity of the old
*Helped the anger of the young grow into understanding
*Stood with the powerless against the jobworths
*Celebrated with parents the humanity of their child
*Enabled education to be a door rather than a wall
*Turned dreams of a future into a living experience
*Worked to make the light shine in all of us
*Assisted other to connect and walk the talk

My aims for the next few years?

*Build up a storytelling practice
*Explore Lifeforce drama counselling
*Move Quakers back into focus
*Support my wife through her future health
*Help my son become the man he is

About my libraryClick here to see my current reading

The reasons why Books stay with me vary. Sometimes I lack the experience to read them yet but will one day (And Have!). Other times they are a memory of the times they shared with me. Not to forget that some books I read and reread them because they let me enter into a world I enjoy or make me think of what could be.

The reason they come into my world is as varied. I pick up a book that leads me down one line and then buy books that remain on the to be read pile when in the meanwhile another book has sent me off into an other line. They then wait until I come back into their direction months and years later?

If I had to sum up my library, all the books are windows into worlds that enable me to enjoy or understand this one more!
