I am aware that in moments of a day tears arrive in my eyes.
Maybe once a day.
Maybe twice a week.
Maybe feeling something from TV, YouTube, Music, or an observation in the street.
Sometimes the tears stay hidden behind my eyes, no liquid, but emotion is there.
I feel it there.
I want to feel them.
Also I want to understand them.
I am going to pay more attention to these moments.
Feel them more
by reflecting on why
* this moment
* this thought
* this memory
* this feeling .....
to understand more who I am.
The triggers that open my soul emotionally.
I am becoming more aware, as I get older,
that I can't do all I want to do - can't deliver so much.
I still have passion & creative stirrings in my soul but not the energy I once had.
This means that I need to prune my priorities more.
A sign always on my desk. 'STRATEGIC PRIORITIES'.
Maybe I need to concentrate more on being than doing.
Yet BECOMING developing changing stretching creating learning thirsting yearning are priorities.
I still want to experience and reflect on growth
which does not reside in a place called comfortable.
Yearning to become ……….

So who to invite? Who will we call?
The flabby, the greasy, the insignificant, the small
The dodgy dealers, the guy on the make
The long-haired hippy, the new age flake
The red-neck farmer, the angry young man
The driver from the East in his dirty white van
Straight from AA or Her Majesty’s Pleasure
Looking confused, feeling under the weather
The bankrupt banker, who’s lost his mask
The exhausted office worker, weighed down with task
The stinking, homeless beggar, the tossed-away lover
The black-suited mourner, who just lost his mother
The orphans from war zones under the rubble
Walking like zombies, looking for cuddles
The quiet gay guy yet to come out
The courageous drag queen who just wants to shout
The woman on benefit, looking ill-fed
Who gives food to her children, goes hungry instead
The mumbling maniac sat on the train
The broke stock-broker walking home in the rain
The Big Issue seller sitting in the cold
The poor, the edgy, the weak and the old
The disturbed, the uncomfortable, the mad and the weird
The strange and the stupid, the crazy and the feared
The chain-smoking psychos, the ones who don’t fit
The ridiculous, the saddos, the grumpy old git
The imperfect ones whose beauty shines true
The ones with the cracks – that’s how the light gets through
The really normal people
The ones. Just. Like. You.

So important when you publish a new book
that it is read
this is different -
it is not just a READING BOOK
it is a Resource for LIFE book -
for the individual -
for groups -
who desire to be BECOMING …….

A Love that will not let you go ……
