I would like all of you, to share in my endeavours at creative writing; to journey with me along the path to eventual publication.

I write because I love the freedom that writing offers. Like many, I am tired of the constraints of what is known and wish to explore the universe with different eyes.

It would bring me great pleasure if I can spread joy to others on my quest to fill my mind with all that I can imagine.

I hope that what I write will not offend anyone. If it does, I apologize profusely as it is not my intention to do so. I am  embarking on a period of exploration with words and hope what I produce will be stimulating and different .

From time to time, I will post extracts from my writings. I am currently working on several pieces; I am close to completing my first young children’s book “Ringu and the Warfoo King.” With some help, I will also do the illustrations. Drawing is another of my hobbies.

I have created my own hand-drawn avatar, a Pegasus, which during the Renaissance was a symbol of poetry and in later years seen as source of inspiration for all poets.

When I feel a bit overwhelmed , I take a deep breath and search for the wisdom of others  to guide me.

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”

C. S. Lewis


“Great thoughts speak only to the thoughtful mind, but great actions speak to all mankind.” AND

“The only man who never makes a mistake is the man who never does anything.”


By  Theodore Roosevelt


“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

By Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Oh, I really appreciate the CS Lewis quote today–I’m not too old, yaaay, now I just need to think up a new dream/goal. Thanks for visiting–God bless you.

  2. WOW, love to see another person who wants to explore and help others just feel happy. welcome and thanks for connecting thru my blog. Even if your writing does offend someone, and it will at some point- don’t worry- you’ve only caused them to stop and think and feel and respond to something- and isn’t that your whole intention??? Not to agree, but to stop and feel an emotion? good luck and look out- you’ve got your Momentum rollling now!!

  4. Hello there. You’ve picked some great quotes. I’m going to have to remember them. I especially liked the CS Lewis one. I’m not all that old, but old enough to think that I can’t go much further. This quote is a breath of fresh air, because new passions and new idea continue. :-)
