Author Brian Jacques, Dies at 71

Just read Brian Jacques obituary. I’m feeling sad and remembering how his Redwall series of books (21 in all with one on the way) delighted my family for years. One of the things I admired about Jacques was that he had many careers and not all of them illustrious. Most of his jobs were working class, as a longshoreman, merchant marine, bus driver or speciality jobs as a boxer and a British bobby. He came to writing in mid-life.

The New York Times obit paints a good picture of him. Rest in peace Brian Jacques you are an inspiration to us all.

Creativity and wellness message for today: Dare to be all you are, let yourself wear many hats.
