One Night a Boy had a Dream

It was one day in the year 1961, whilst driving home after the South African Grand Prix in East London, that the young boy told his father that Jim Clark (see featured picture at top of page) would one day be the champion driver of the world. The young boy was in a bad mood, because the young Clark had beaten his hero, Stirling Moss. And for the next few years the young South African boy followed the rising Scot star’s ascending career with great interest and pride. So that the new shooting star eventually usurped the place of the now retired old hero, Moss after his near fatal accident at Goodwood, UK…until it too was tragically extinguished in a minor race at Hockenheim, Germany in 1968.

And that night in the “early sixties”, the young boy lay on his bed and read the race program, over again and again. Then he fell asleep and dreamt, peacefully, blissfully. Perhaps one day… one sunny day…

“Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.”

All our dreams can come true…if we have the desire (burning), determination, courage, passion, persistence and patience* to pursue them (and it’s often through the very dark places where they may lead)…long enough.”

Climbing Mountains, Chasing Dreams

“Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.”
