“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)

Craig and Jamie from http://v8supercarspetrolhead.wordpress.com/

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, ‘Wow! What a Ride!”

– Hunter S Thompson

“If we could all be in tune with each other… or with ourselves… that’s the main thing. Then there would be no crime and no problems. If we could just respect the person next to you, the chain reaction would solve everything. “

On the Podium: The Greatest Race (The Race of Life)

WHO IS "THE REAL, THE TRUE, THE LIVING" JESUS?

“When (or perhaps if ever) you arrive in heaven, let hope, faith and love be the wings that carried you there.”
– as adapted from the inspiring words of Jonathan Edwards, former minister in New England, Massachusetts

“The Greatest Race: Living by (with) faith, hope and love is the highest podium any person can reach, God’s podium that anyone stand on.”

“Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life one that ANYONE can run and win.”
