Dare to Dream


In the bleakness of Kansas Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz desperately asks her dog “Some place where there isn’t any trouble. Do you suppose there is such a place, Toto?”

As a young child I too longed for a place of serenity…a place without trouble…. ‘There must be. It’s not a place you can get to by a boat, or a train. It’s far, far away. Behind the moon, beyond the rain…’

In Chapter 1 of my book The Grace of a Nightingale I describe how….

‘I have a faint memory of playing in yellow cornfields at the end of our back garden. I would make dens there, peaceful, quiet retreats where the secret invisible beauty of birdsong brought an atmosphere of hope and calm. As I nestled in the safe shelter of high, sweet-smelling golden stalks, I daydreamed about living in a faraway place surrounded by green hills, forests, silver flowing streams and colourful wildlife.’

Dreams that you dare to dream really do come true…..
