1.9.2021 It’s Good To Be Back

I’ve missed you. I’m glad to be back, and I look forward to sharing my time with you again.

Many of you will know that I lost my dad in June, suddenly and unexpectedly. The shock and the grief are immense, and ongoing.

But dad would not want me to sit around grieving for too long. I know he’s watching over me, and I know that he would want me to make the most of life.

So, I’m back, with a fresh look to my website, and regular blog posts. I’ve been asked by my publishers to put in a proposal for another book, which I’m delighted to do. I have so many ideas, so much learning I’d like to share with you! Not only that, but I’m writing a series of articles for Horse and Rider magazine, and I’m featuring regularly in Horsemanship magazine, Western Horse magazine and the Intelligent Horsemanship magazine, among others.

Writing is a passion, and passion is important. I’d like to share with you a passage that I read at dad’s memorial service. Each day is a new day, and an opportunity to live our best life.

Success, by Bessie Anderson Stanley

“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much;

who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;

who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;

who has left the world better than he found it

whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem or a rescued soul;

who has never lacked appreciation of Earth’s beauty or failed to express it;

who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had;

whose life was an inspiration;

whose memory a benediction.”
