South Africa

I want to write stories that matter a lot to me, in terms of my deepest values. True stories from people’s lives in history, that are worth sharing with others, as they have great meaning regarding the universal human condition. I love writing about ordinary people in exceptional circumstances and times, that hopefully uplift and impact others…through certain people’s great generosity of spirit inherent in the human condition. Spirits that overcome great obstacles or some immense adversity in their lives!

In short, I try to write, then share inspirational stories of ordinary people in exceptional circumstances and times; so my writings are about the indomitable and unquenchable strength of the human spirit.

My story not only shines a light on South Africa’s past, but tells us something about the present and how one man’s freedom fighter, like Nelson Mandela can be another’s terrorist. (It just depends upon ones perspective…at a particular time in history). Therefore, it is vitally important to understand the mind of a person. And that is the mindset we are truly going to have to understand to “win this current ‘war against terror’”. So, by only looking to history, we always find something, a ray of hope to illuminate the present and the future.

Robert Ingersol suggests this great truth:
In the night of death, hope sees a star and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing.”

I think this is one of the most beautiful lines in all of English literature.

Having a Brain Injury (it never ends…)

Head/Traumatic Brain Injury: How to LIVE with it

What is a brain injury like?   It’s not like a broken leg.   It’s not like most other medical conditions or diseases.   It’s not getting old and experiencing “senior moments”.    It is very different although many people look at it as “oh, you’ll get over it” or “I have that too, it’s what happens when you age.”

A brain injury, whether from trauma, stroke, aneurysm, lack of oxygen or other cause, happens quite suddenly – out of the blue.   You are fine; everything works; your mind is active and full of ideas and dreams and thoughts; you walk about without a problem.   You can speak and comprehend what someone is saying while you cook or do something else.   You read, watch TV, drive, cook, solve problems, make decisions…..   Most likely you don’t think about your brain at all but it is what is making those things all possible.
