“Change in one’s way of life resulting from penitence or spiritual conversion.”
“The journey of changing one’s mind, self, heart or way of life”.
The depression coined the derogatory phrase, “Wrong side of the tracks”.
Referring to the shanty towns built by migrant workers, homeless and vagabonds. Derogatory in every sense.
A statement saying that the down and out, the worker who will travel thousands of miles to pick your pickles and the nomads of society are of lessor being then you are.
It was a sign of the times. The late fifties and early sixties showed us two sides of life.
The peace and Love of the Hippies and Environmentalists was the sensible choice. Unfortunately, it was greatly ignored.
It was a time of man that was filled with prejudice, misinformed people and the confusion of a fast changing world.
The second is one of shame. Fueled by hatred and racism.
Brought shamefully to the surface of all media by the assassination of Martin Luther King and JFK.
I grew up on the wrong side of those tracks.
I am honoured to have been raised there. For I am a realist in every sense of the definition.
Mind you the other side of those tracks were only twelve feet away and looked the same as my street.
This is the introduction of my latest book, “Metanoia”. Pretty well self-explanatory. I’ve ventured into a new genre of writing. More family oriented. This book is the first of my series, “That’s My Good Eye, Jimi”.
I don’t sell a large number of books. I didn’t write them with dreams of being the next Stephen King. I wrote the fictional stories to make a little income. My autobiography I wrote to get my story of life out there and hopefully change at least one solitary life.
My son’s, Jordan, biography I wrote to show what led up to his tragic suicide on Christmas Morning 2019. How the broken system “Aged” him out into the world knowing it would end badly.
My “Old Man With The ‘C’ – A Cancerous Walk With Dann’ details my first year of battling Squamous Cell Carcinoma.
My others stand alone books speak for themselves.
All my books are available worldwide via Amazon/Kindle
