I live in West Cumbria and owe the Open University for enabling me to grow and achive so many dreams and more.

From sailor to airman, from marine cadet to conscientious objector to something more, from Christian to Buddhist to something more - always growing always seeking deeper insights into the human condition: to be all I can be - to encourage and help others to be all they can be...

Finally realising at 60 - "We are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For"
