As the weekend approaches, you can almost feel the country heave a sigh of relief. Offices close, busy high streets are emptied, banks and institutions shut their doors, and the fast pace of the business week is put on hold temporarily. Opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends, plans and arrangements made in advance, awaited with expectations, fall into place. The weekend gives us a chance to reflect over recent events, taking a break from normal daily routines and activities. Whether one simply relaxes and has ‘time out’, or fills the weekend with enjoyable socializing or hobbies, hopefully our physical and emotional ‘batteries’ are recharged to face the coming week. Have a good weekend everyone – and enjoy life.
I have been writing poetry and stories since I was a child, and a love of reading was instilled in me from an early age. I am passionate about writing, and hope you enjoy the books I have written. Whilst most of you sleep soundly in your beds, like many Parkinson’s patients, insomnia dictates, so during those hours that sleep eludes me, the house is tranquil and quiet, an atmosphere perfect to immerse myself in writing. My life has been a series of strange events, which have without doubt contributed to my creativity. To publish anything is to bear one’s soul to the world. It is to stand naked and let everyone see who you really are. I have poured my heart and soul out on paper and I hope to share this journey, immersing you in a story, capturing your attention and firing the imagination. Through my writing and public speaking I hope to bring greater awareness to the general public about living with chronic disease.
