My First Blog Post

Illusions? Maybe is a book that is inspired by a book by an American author by the name of Richard Bach. He’s the guy who many people remember for his immortal classics Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Illusions:The Adventures Of A Reluctant Messiah. I liked his Illusions story better as I found it quite funny and at the same time, very thought-provoking. It was written back in the seventies but it was a bestseller and eventually became a classic. Richard Bach actually casts himself as one of the main characters and the story chronicles his meeting with a christ-like-figure with reality altering powers. His meeting with this extraordinary individual leads him on a journey of self discovery where he learns many spiritual truths and knowledge. It certainly inspired me to write my own Illusions story with me in Richards role and base it on a personal part of my life. Many of my friends thought it was a bad idea to do a story with a similar theme to Richard Bach’s Illusions, but I guess I really wanted to create my own unique, modern-day version of this great story. I did not really care what people thought about it, whether they loved or hated the story. It was just something I needed to write and share with the world and even though it has not quite taken off and become a hit, I am still proud of the end result.

My name is Glenn Riley and I am 41 years of age. I feel I am at that point in my life where I want to try new things. I am already a published author with a second book on the way. I mix and compose music with tracks already published on YouTube inspired by my book and now, I am trying my hand with blogs. I do apologise if you spot any grammar, punctuation and spelling mistakes, but hey, I’m still developing my skills. I never graduated from education with great marks on English or any other subject but I do have that imagination and passion to write. My favourite subjects that I write about are things that are cosmic related like ie: Law Of Attraction and the nature of reality, the idea that life is an illusion and questions like ‘who we really are? where we came from? where we are heading?’ I am a deep thinker on subjects like this and this is what I love writing about. I look forward to writing more posts, but it will not always be about the stuff I just mentioned. I also like writing about things related to self-help. I hope you will enjoy reading what I have written and just say what you like. Whether you like it or not, that is up to you. Everyone is different and I acknowledge that. Just no rude or spiteful remarks.

Until next time…
