Michael Heaphyabout this book: Life is a ride. The way we have handled that ride has made us the people we have become. Most of my working life was spent as a band-leader. Because of this vocation I was lucky enough to have met many wonderful people and traveled to many great places. When I was about seventeen I started a journal. It's main purpose was to keep a record of certain feelings I have had. A place to write down poems, song lyrics and reactions to things that had taken place. I had no intention of ever showing these writings to anyone. The more I wrote though the more I realized that no matter how different our own circumstances may be the more similar our reactions to these circumstances are. When it comes right down to it we are all brothers and sisters. We all share and Infinite Heart. We are a culmination of every thing that has ever happened to us, everyone we have ever met,every mistake we have ever made and every dream we have ever had...weather they have come true...or not.
My hope, or dream, is that you will be taken back to your own dreams and memories and realize how unique you are and that life and it's lessons are a gift.
