David McLaughlan
Author of The Wayfarer's Tales

 

David McLaughlan shares his knack for finding the extra in the ordinary every Tuesday in his column, Wayfarer's Tales.  Join this wayfarer to discover life's simple yet amazing treasures.  (Several of David's stories have also been featured as Soul Magic!)
 

"I've sailed the world in a supertanker, ran a sports association, been a lifeguard, a door steward, managed a charity, built an oil rig (not all by myself,) all to pay the bills.  And then my wonderful wife asked, "What would you REALLY like to do?"  So here I am, in the middle of my childhood dream... Writing! 

But even then one must be practical. Some things sell and bills need paying. So, I compromise. But I find the things that warm my heart the most are the things I write from the heart. From my heart to yours. For free. And Sir Froggie's Positive News Network lets me do just that! 

I hope you like what I write. But really, I'm just the messenger boy, passing on the wonder I see about me. It brightens my life daily and if I can share it with another soul, you for instance, then I'm a happy man."
