If adventure came knocking, would you have the courage to open the door? That was the question Susie had to answer. She was very comfortably established in her hometown routine, semiretired and serene. So it was with some misgivings that she agreed to take a tour around the perimeter of the United States with her husband, Bob. The conveyance? His new dream machine, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle with a sidecar added just for her. With no former riding experience and no little anxiety, she goes along for the ride. She learns a bit about the country, its people, and some very important things about herself. Come along for a virtual ride! But don't get too comfortable, because one day, it might be your door that adventure finds.
GOD, RACING AND WRITING: A NEW BOOK "A/My Holy Trinity"* " "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." - Pierre Teilhard de Chardin "All traditions of culture and faith have tales of people breaking out of their limited viewpoint, suddenly seeing the universe in crystal clarity, as if they've unlocked the secret of life itself." "It is far from the exclusive preserve of those who attribute it to a personal deity. Belief about the source of these powers will always be affected by upbringing, nationality and culture. this power is far more internal and integral to every living being, accessible to everyone, 'believer' or not." - fine writing by Clyde Brolin in his fascinating book "OVERDRIVE; FORMULA ONE IN THE ZONE' Web site: www.overdrivef1.com Your God is a 'petrol-head', but He/She/It does have a sense of humour." - Thoughts of my good micro-biologist and dentist friend, Andy "Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly." - Franz Kafka There are only three sports: bullfighting, mountain climbing and motor racing; all the rest are merely games." - Ernest Hemingway "Racing is a metaphor for life itself." "The Zone could simply be a gateway to the divine, one of God's methods of reminding us of His - and our - glorious power. Omnipresence means that power must be everywhere, everytime. Including the racetracks. Including today." "Grand Prix racing is primarily a mental contest it's a battle of strength of wills by the combatants and a magnificent contest, the arena to display and share unique gifts and talents. Perhaps in this 'theatre of speed', F1 is a metaphor for life itself" - craig From my blogs www.raceinthezone.wordpress.com and www.godracingandwriting.wordpress.com "People talk about the Zone as a very outward thing, but it's not". It's very spiritual. To me, the Zone is when you're operating at the intuitive level. You're not thinking about it, so it happens naturally. You're at the top of your job. You've got your emotions controlled, your energy is channelled and you're just doing it. That's the Zone. You're just doing it." - British touring car driver (and numerous times World Touring Car Champion) , Andy Priax from Clyde Brolin's fascinating book OVERDRIVE: FORMULA ONE IN THE ZONE) www.overdrivef1.com which inspired me to write this one, my "own one" thanks Clyde "Look across all sport and observe the truly great. All had this zest for combat, this taste for being truly tested. All wished to explore (and even expand*) the limits of their own possibilities. * my words Time after time we are forced to wonder why one great talent succeeds and another still greater talent falls short? The reason is not mere "the will to win". Rather it is the will to be tested at the very highest level. It is the ability to not only dwell on the far edge of sporting possibility, but to hold one's balanceand to relish the proximity of the void." -The Times, London From https://formula1mind.wordpress.com/2015/02/25/look-across-all-sport-and-observe-the-truly-great-all-had-this-zest-for-combat-this-taste-for-being-truly-tested-all-wished-to-explore-and-even-expand-the-limits-of-their-own-possibilities/ Racing is something that most people will never understand. It's not just a sport or something to do on Saturday night and Sunday. It's a way of life!! Once your in it, it's in your blood. Once you make your first run... you can't stop. The track is home away from home. You smell that race fuel, rubber, and when you hear those engines scream.... it's music to your ears. Also the love of the racing family!! Following on from my books Racing and Writing in the Zone and God and Formula 1 For S G and M. I know you can't understand my "passions". Still thanks for brightening each day more than ever know c
