Submitter's Note: Craig is presently working on his latest novel 'The (My) Greatest Race'. These are some notes (some thoughts on the 'spiritual and writing journeys' - some from authors unknown) that I've collected and jotted down over the years. So will share with you. Enjoy...


A Creed (to live by):

* Treat ALL people with respect * Be responsible and accountable (for our actions) * Do your best * Never give up * Don't take life too seriously

The principles you live by create the world you live in.

Every problem has a spiritual solution.

# I write to impel some kind of ACTION in readers.

# I try to show the extra-ordinary in 'ordinary' (what's that?) lives, as revealed by strength of character, resilience, the depths of resilience, the courage and especially the immense generosity of spirit of so many “ordinary” (what’s that?!) people, as they struggle along daily with what is called the amazing journey, that is life.

# I want to write true stories *, inspiring a thread (or threads) of hope and especially the power of LOVE (no 'Mills and Boon type stories, now please, craig). True stories of renewal and transformation, a new heart... "From Seeds Of Hope (planting) to Endless Possibilities, Far and Great Horizons".

* Also with underlying themes of justice, hope, peace and especially love.

Our goal in life is to create the perfect conditions for the full flowering of our essential self??

Knowing that you have made a difference will keep you strong.

Each one of us can choose to do the highest good for the greatest number of people.

Sow plentiful seeds to break down mind, one heart, one soul, one life at a time.

Know where you WANT to be... and who and what you want to become.

Many small (yet significant) steps by many 'ordinary' (what's that?) people will eventual reach their destination.

Let Your spirit shine through words Embrace the light and shine YOUR own bright light for humanity.
