This work is dedicated to all those great sportsmen that I have been privileged to see performing their vast array of skills, mainly on television... but some in person. But especially to the South African cricket and rugby football teams, who have given me so much pleasure in recent years (particularly since the re-admittance of the cricket team to the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand
The "Diary of a Rolling Stone":
Craig is an extensive world traveller (on a "shoestring budget") and failed professional emigrater who has spent most of his lifes savings on airfares. He is still sliding down the razor blade of life on the beautiful undiscovered island that is New Zealand, somewhere near the bottom (rude!) of the world near Antarctica. There he talks to the 60 million sheep!
My meeting Stirling Moss and other things.
This work is my small contribution to South Africa. Here in exile, I daily think of and cry for my 'beloved country'. Even from this distance, I am happy and extremely optimistic that things will work out for all its inhabitants. I believe one day there will be peace and prosperity for all. October 1993. In THE END OF THE LINE, Craig Lock has created a passionate tale of South Africa.
Craig Lock is an extensive world traveller and failed professional emigrater who has spent most of his life's savings on airfares. He is still 'sliding down the razor blade of life', stuck on a deserted (other than a few brilliant rugby players) island at the bottom of the world near Antarctica, where he is 'trying to throw a double six' to get off and go out into the real world.
A passionate story of inspiration: hope, faith, peace and especially LOVE for the world and inspired by what I simply term God, the Creative Source of Life itself. That is my legacy to my beloved family...and the world.
Our two, three, four, five years down under in New Zealand (kiwiland)...and I'm still damn well here ten years later! and LOVING it even more. A South African's and "exile Kiwi's" light-hearted look at life in laid-back, provincial New Zealand.. Eventually life in "Sleepy Hollow" became so quiet that we decided to write a book about it although there were one or two adventures from time to time.
A collection of writings on various subjects to help the every man or woman survive in a rapidly changing, uncertain world after the easy living and prosperity of the seventies and eighties, (especially for me living in South Africa under apartheid).
These are some notes that I've made recently (from my "red book"), which is forming the basis, the frame-work, the building-blocks for a new manuscript I'm writing. So will share with you and post extracts (hopefully regularly) on my Wordpress blog (craiglock.wordpress.com) as I write it. Hopefully I'll continue getting my "daily dose of inspiration".
