Last week I discovered this little book of Bryce Courtenays. I just fell in love with it. "A Recipe for Dreaming" is a little book of inspirational words of wisdom from Bryce and beautiful images by Anie Williams. It is such a positive, uplifting little book. I had actually planned to put up a post about it last week Then last night I saw the interview on A Current Affair with Tracy Grimshaw and his message today on Facebook.
So unbelievably sad. He is such an amazing man, and author. My heart is just breaking... and my thoughts go out to him and his family. What a wonderful interview though... still so positive and upbeat. Purely inspirational as always.
"When you're skating on thin ice
you might as well tap-dance
Stick your neck out, volunteer, have a go, reach out
beyond your best performance and when you do,
do so with style, elan, panache. You will learn more
from a brilliantly executed failure than from a
success planned within the dreary safety of
what you already know.
Winning easy is boring, pointless work."
