S: SHIMODA, Donald.

When I was 13, a friend passed me a black book by some author called Richard Bach. There was a bright blue feather on the cover. "Illusions", it said, "The Adventures of  a  Reluctant Messiah". From the first page I was hooked for many many years to come. And a lot of it still influences my thinking! 
In fact some years ago my Mom presented me with the book, "The Messiah's Handbook" and even now I keep finding myself reaching for the book, randomly opening a page and finding the words of wisdom and encouragement that I need right then!  
And, yes, I even tried cloud vaporising...sometimes, I swear it works. 

And I do not have to look up the net for a quotes. Here's one I use all the time, something my girls are very familiar with; 

"What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly." 
- Richard Bach. 


  1. I haven't read this book, but your quote blew me away. Thanks for sharing.
