Welcome... glad you could stop by!

"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time." 

~ Thomas Edison.

Would you agree?

It's like the old adage: if first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Add as many ‘try’s as you need because the next try might be the one. And it goes hand in hand with where there is a will there is a way.

At the root of this is hope. Don’t give up. Try just one more time. Hope refuses to give up. Sometimes it’s all we have. There’s a strong element of hope in all we attempt and want to achieve. And the Covid-19 pandemic has stretched our hope (as well as many other things) to absolute limits.

We are often reminded that the opposite of hope, or the absence of hope, is despair. If you have ever been in despair you know how painful it is, and the only thing to relieve that pain is hope in some form. Think about what that could be. We cannot live in despair. To exist without hope, that sense of 'no way out of this', is an agony that human beings know only too well leads to dreadful outcomes.


Another famous quote says: 'There are three things that last: faith, hope and love, and the greatest of these is love'. The three move and act together and are made up of each other. And they last. It is in the nature of living to hope.

There’s a strong thread of hope wound through The Liberty & Property Legends, too, so much so that I’ve sub-titled Volume Five’s trilogy in hope’s honor. If you haven't discovered them yet, I hope you will soon :)

The Liberty & Property Legends Volume Five – A PLACE AMONG HEROES, Book 1: Rise of Hope & Book 2: Return of Hope… the third book in this ‘Hope Trilogy’ is in the works. I hope to have it finished in the not too distant future :)

The grand saga in focus...

Volume Two: EMPIRE FOR LIBERTY Dangerous Lullaby... Wyoming winter, 1885: a world in the grip of snow and bitter cold where a shadow grows unchecked, until a spark of destiny ignites a passionate defense against the oncoming darkness…
