Master Of Your Own Ship

Today we may say aloud before an awe-struck world: "We are still masters of our fate. We are still captain of our souls."
Winston Churchill

I love this quote by Churchill. It sums everything up for me. We certainly are masters of our fate to a degree, although sometimes things happen of which we have no control over. However, if you want something then you must go and get it. If you want to write, do it. There's no other way. It's a good feeling sitting here, master of my own ship, sailing the waters, sometimes calm, sometimes stormy, yet always sailing. 

Product DetailsToday I have had an amazing discovery, all thanks to social media network, Twitter. Having forgotten my password for my account and being too lazy to reset it, I've not used Twitter for a few months. Today, I sorted this out and discovered a true hero among my list of new followers. This gentleman is a retired Lt Colonel of the 8th American Air Force - 'The Mighty Eighth.' He's the author of his biographical account of his service time during World War Two. Richard B Lewis served as a Bomber Pilot and whilst he states that "it was the greatest time of my life," he's quick to state that given the choice, "he'd never do it again."

I've just ordered my signed copy from his website. He's also on Facebook and Twitter, the links are also on the website. If you happen to be an avid aviation historian or simply a WW2 fanatic, then please do visit him at the link pasted below. It will be an honour to read about him and to learn from his experiences.
