Its messages are simple; don't believe everything you hear and don't allow fear to control your life. With these messages in mind the illustrations show the life cycle of a Goat's-beard plant (Tragopogon Pratensis - Irish name ‘Finidí na muc’) - for the botanically minded) so there are some lovely nature lessons in it. There is also a question page and a game that tests the observational skills of children who have just read the book.
The human experience is different for each of us and although there’s a commonality to this existence the way we approach it can make it a pleasure or a pain. The whys and wherefores that we all ask in the wee hours when we can’t sleep or during and in the aftermath of some personal crisis can leave us tormented. Those times when we stand thinking the whole world is mad; when what is so simple is so complicated; when every step we take seems to be like walking through treacle and we want to scream STOP! There must be a better way.
If you’ve reached this place in your life then I invite you to read my books (semi-autobiography, self-help, philosophy, psychology, metaphysical and many other genres). Books that deeply examine the society we created and the idiosyncrasies of our minds. We can be in control of our own lives; first individually and then globally; it begins within. In my books I’ve explored my mind and it follows that as I’m no-one extraordinary, then my experiences aren’t very different to yours.
Never give up!
