"I will be naked more I will memorise clouds ...............


I would love to have an hour or so with you just chilling and chatting. 
I have feelings, passions and opinions. 
I don't have an opinion about everything so your view can influence mine. 
I am a broken offering to life. 
My life I carry around experiences which have damaged. 
At the same time they, the same hurts, are the things which have made me grow and develop. 
It is only when we talk together that we find out about what is going on inside.

We have all sorts of thoughts sloshing around in our heads like a cement mixer. 
When we pour out the concrete it sets and becomes more real. 
So, when we talk things, we make things more concrete and we learn. 
Life is 'life long learning’. 

I was born in St Helens Lancashire, the home of glass and Rugby League. 
At school and in the park we never played football, 
even as little kids, 
we played rugby league. 
My Dad was a miner in the coal mines. 
He didn't go to war because of that and he also was an 'air raid warden’ 
which meant helping people to take precautions for when the Hitler bombs dropped. 
I was born as the second world war broke out. 
See if you can work out the year?

I was the youngest of four boys and was a mistake. 
I fought my way through childhood and that was just with my brothers! 
Also my education was poor. 
I was terrible at school too.
I had no interest in school only messing about. 

But at 15 some thing happened 
(I will tell you if you ask). 
I then started work in a factory at 15 and trained to be a fitter/engineer 
building winches for ships followed by working in another factory making parts for engines and trains to be exported all around the world - 
and playing rugby all the time. 
Then at 21 some thing happened to change my whole purpose and direction?..

So that is a wee bit of me. 
What I want do is to find out about your journey, and I bet your life would make a great book?
l bet you could write a book about it! 
A thriller?

I did, - the original is called 'Gutter Feelings’ and you can still get it from . 
I have added a few more chapters because of you, and would love to add more chapters.

"I will be naked more
I will memorise clouds
There is no law that says you shall not study a sunset
Beyond heavy woolens, beyond the Nightly News, beyond the
reach of what hurts you, beyond politics (national, local, sexual),beyond beyond"
