Description of "Walking With Joy"

Walking with Joy is about a long walk with the author. It’s about a pathway of discovery and on the way you’ll learn about the art of living, the art of writing and the essence of poetry. You’ll learn about the good and bad sides of some well known people and what we should learn from them.

As you walk along, the conversational topics will include the nine muses, van Gogh, Picasso, Nijinsky and the Symbolist Poets of France and many other real or imaginary people and even animals. Mainly, the author draws attention to Nature around you. He suggests that you don’t walk past that old Apple tree but walk over to it and hug it. That you hold a wriggling fish in your hands just to see what happens.

He holds up a hand and says "listen". Listen to that cricket in the Mexican bush or that donkey that carries two sacks full of pottery to the market.

He’ll tell you about some personal adventures that reveal that destiny often has a sense of humour. Around a campfire, he’ll tell you about loves lost and loves found. With a faraway look in his eyes, he’ll tell you about an eternal longing for a mystical place, far far away, that he longs to visit one day. Above all, he’ll tell you with a gleam in his eyes, about the joys of singing, music and dancing. He will ask you to listen to the magical effects of a violin played by someone with joy in his heart.

The journey will end as you come to the last page but after you close the book you will not be the same. Something deep down inside of you will have changed. You’ll know how it is to walk with joy.

About the author(s)

Before I qualified as a M Sc (Eng), I was lucky enough to be chosen as an echange student to Germany. There, during some sports tours and later as a businessman, I had the opportunity to visit many countries on five continents. During these visits, I met and stayed with people of many cultures.
Later,after a serious spiritual wake up call, I turned to writing. That's when my experiences and lessons learned during my travels came in handy.

In my anthology, I reveal to the reader, the variety of spiritual messages left for us in Nature. There are always around us, special communications to us in all the forests, mountains, rivers, animals and and also in those special people that we meet from time to time. We should become aware of these and learn to benefit from them.

In my romantic adventure novels I try to use exciting and unique storylines, In them I examine important social issues and suggest ways of overcoming them.

I've been reading Fred's work for some time now and have always savoured every minute of doing so. I've always enjoyed my discussions with him on his style and content and his ability to make me smile and sometimes even burst out laughing.
I am an international artist, a lover of classical and folk music and an avid reader of the literature of many countries. However, since reading Fred's work, I've stopped listening to my Paul Coelho disks. I mean that as a compliment to Fred. He has a way of addressing my heart and my mind and in addition, I like the way his stories have a beginning, a middle and an end. I'm never left wondering what he, the author, really meant.
I share with the author his wide range of emotions from deep inner longings to a laugh in the face of destiny. To my own amazement, I've learned about the striving for excellence from a Mexican cricket and the nostalgia of soldiers witnessing the last performance, in an open field, of one of the world's greatest ever dancers. I love the way in which Fred openly embraces the cultures and traditions of the world and makes them his own.
Above all, I've now learned to look at trees and animals in a new way. I feel that they all have something to tell me and I've also learned that, as I walk along, the sound of music is not far away.

Even if you claim to not be a creative person, this book will inspire you to great levels of creativity! This book does not contain step-by-step directions and how-to photos, but rather it presents wonderful, inspirational suggestions to get your own creativity flowing. Here, Nature is the Bible.

This book is about people creating the results in life that they truly seek. Or better said, it’s about the spirit that surfaces manifesting that craving, and the different ways to walk the talk.
