A Memoir by David Werrett

It is said somewhere in the many readings I have that if a man is to be happy he should have a Vision.

As it is with all inspirational sayings, this one may not be true for me.

I had Visions, a couple of them; I am glad I did. They helped me get through life to the productive, and yes, happy point I am at now.

Presently, things are different for me. I am still on the Journey, but I have no particular destination, unless I consider the ultimate Earthly destination that we all have, Death, which will come at its own pace.

No, I am free of striving. Free from awakening in the morning with a list of activities I must accomplish to get ahead.

I am allowing the winds of fate to propel my craft to a suitable but unknown destination.

This is called faith.

Faith came to me as one of the gifts of Grace I received from the Universe.

I am in possession, or perhaps I am possessed, by an Angel. Angel is my Orenda, my spiritual power, my guide, my intuition. The Iroquois believe we all have Orenda, a spiritual power. Everything animate or inanimate possess Orenda.

I have chosen to use my Orenda and believe in my spiritual powers.

Because of my faith in the Universe’s special power, Orenda, I no longer have to invest my daily life in a Vision. I have the Orenda to complete my Journey. All I need is to sail my little craft, taking directions from my Angel, which will lead me to my understanding and spiritual knowledge.

The Universe, through Angel, has given me the voice to explain my connection with the natural world, its power over me and my power over it. I do this through writing; my voice, my Orenda.

David H. [d. h.] Werrett, a former professional pilot and businessman, successfully incorporates both skills in his writing, but with quirky twists. David has self-published two fiction adventure novels available on Amazon, Kobo, and Smashwords. A third book of selected poems and short-stories will be available in the fall of 2019. 

David has this to say about his writing career, “As a young child I was always conjuring up stories and filling them with colorful characters, sharing them with anyone who would listen. Since then, I’ve progressed quite a bit to formulating longer and more complex stories and sharing them with much larger audiences. As a professional storyteller, I’m adept at using my imaginative and creative flair to bring my stories to life in engaging and entertaining ways.” Visit Dave Werrett, http://www.angelchroniclestories.com/
