The author went to Western Australia to witness his son Gary's IRONMAN race. The tenacity and the chase-to-death inspired him, the onlooker, to long for what was missing in his life. When you read the last two sections (IRONMAN 1 and IRONMAN 2) of this book, you may resonate and encounter your own dream and destiny: "My Dream House," "My Bluebottle Fly," "A True Believer Sees a Complete Circle," "I Hear the Ocean Landing" and "I Draw a Line in the Sand." (You can read the theme poem "I Hear the Ocean Landing" by visiting the following link: http://www.nourish.com/i-hear-the-ocean-landing). After reading this poem, you could have a different perspective next time when you see the pounding of the waves onto the shore. You may choose to expand your horizon to see the full circle, the dream house, the line in the sand.......... "Choices are the hinges of destiny." (Edwin Markham) It comes and goes, seagull soars to the heavens, relinquishes no path. "What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." (Ralph Waldo Emerson).
