“In my various writings I try to show the extra-ordinary in ‘ordinary’ (what’s that?) lives, as revealed by strength of character, resilience, the depths of 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 journey of life.”

WRITING

“I want to write books that change people’s lives – change the way they think and feel – fully change them for the better in some way.”

-anon writer

“I really value words. I really try to illustrate and let people draw their own conclusions, which is how I feel. I never want to proscribe what people should think and feel,”:

– ‘another a nonymoose writer’

“I make art through writing…and words are my tools.”

– me

“My palette is the canvas of life”

– craig

“I want to write the way Gilles Villeneuve drove and power-slid his blood-red Formula One Ferrari… with wild enthusiasm and a sense of abandonment, combined with the artists craft of a Stirling Moss, a Jim Clark, and especially that of the great Ayrton Senna, living on the razor-blade edge of life.”
for dearest mom and dad, your spirits lives on (forever)
thanks for all the support, encouragement and especially love

“All the world will be happier and better, when the men and women have the souls of artists,, like that of an Ayrton Senna.

– craig (as inspired by Rodin’s famous words)

“I want to write the way Gilles Villeneuve drove and power-slid his blood-red Formula One Ferrari… with wild enthusiasm and a sense of abandonment, combined with the artists craft of a Stirling Moss, a Jim Clark, and especially that of the great Ayrton Senna, living on the razor-blade edge of life.”
“I want to write the way Australian Super-car driver, Craig Lowndes drives and power-slides his powerful V8 Holden Super-car… with wild enthusiasm and a sense of abandonment, yet combined with the artists craft and smooth style of a Jamie Whincup (craig’s team-mate), a Stirling Moss, a Jim Clark, and especially that of the great Ayrton Senna, living on the razor-blade edge of life.”

(thanks Craig and Jamie, for the great pleasure you give me watching “you guys” race here “across the ditch” on TV)
