"As I leave my time on this earth I know that my footprints on it are silent, invisible and impermanent upon its surface. My existence is only recorded by those I’ve known in my life in their memories of me. These too are impermanent and will in time fade and become no more. This is the cycle of life.
I write this book as a personal record of my viewpoints, interpretations of what I have viewed and experienced whilst on my earth walk. My motivation to write it is like many before me and many more after I am gone. To leave a vision in print for others to reference to or use as a signpost towards a path upon which they might like to journey themselves.
I write this book of reference mainly for my sons, for when I am gone they will in time forget my voice of guidance and this book will be a way of keeping my teachings and guidance available for them to tap into if they need once I am no longer here physically.
I began to write this book in the year 2007. I am now reaching my mid 40’s and am beginning to start my reflective years of living. My generation has been given the name of the X generation, which is interesting due to the content of my book falling into the X factor. However if you ask my sons they would have you believe that I’m well into being OLD. In history men and women were respected in their elder years as the tribes and cultures of those times valued their wisdom, which they contributed to the younger members of the tribe. Storytelling was a valued tradition as it was in that time the only way to hand down knowledge so it could continue on through the younger generations. In our modern society this tradition is considered barbaric and youth is valued now and society continues to endorse how to stay YOUNG! "
