Of course, I was not the most truthful child. Therefore, when mother said, “Jared stop telling stories,” I started to write them instead.
As time went on, I found many interests. Writing, guitar, computers… I not only discovered my creative side, but also my technical one.
Up through my mid-twenties, I wrote fiction and created music. At twenty-five, I received my first full-time IT position; my free time became imprisoned by the computer world.
Now at the top of the hill—the climb proved challenging—I feel the cool air on my head as I look at the horizon. I muse over my memories—the path I traveled. Though muddied with life’s mistakes, I find something left behind, something salvageable. M ... read more

A Love Supreme
A Love Supreme may seem an unlikely title for a football magazine. Rather than try and explain it we'll leave you to consider the following passage. "True supporters care. They care enough to argue vehemently but often perceptively about the team, the players, the issues; they care enough to commit themselves to the cause of the club; they care enough to turn up week after week to support the team; they care enough to criticise, among themselves, their own players. The opposite of love, after all, is not hate, but indifference.”
