A Fresh Approach (Paperback)Ian Colley (author)

Inspired by the author's wife - the organised and practical one in their partnership - this collection of inspirational poetry and short stories has been written piecemeal over the past 20 or 30 years for various anthology publications and a few competitions. The text reflects the author's passion for Christianity, music, literature, sailing and above all, family and loyal friends. Three strokes have cruelly deprived him of participation in singing, regular attendance at church and walking, along with all human enjoyment in these activities. Conversely, the written word has vicariously taken his mind where the body is forbidden and has reminded him of what a powerful force ego is. Thinking and writing has maintained his sanity and on at least one occasion prevented the implementation of his well-prepared suicide. It is his sincere hope that readers will benefit in similar ways, whether or not they feel they are on Life's scrapheap or labouring in the Slough of Despond. "As I live and breathe", he says, "and as YOU live and breathe, you are not Scrap nor need you be depressed!"
