I can remember things in my life that struck me as if something had changed and would never be the same again. Things that may strike some as a little strange, moments when everything just sort of toppled on a point of balance and fell into a new place. Things would never be the same again.

Like the day Ceri Evans beat me at marbles on the front lawn at home. We were about ten at the time, he wanted to give up and I was on a winning streak. He had this one marble that I wanted, so I pushed him to play on. The result was that he cleaned me out of all my marbles, I don’t know if that was the start of his determination to succeed, but succeed he did, he went on to become an All White, Rhodes Scholar and Doctor of Medicine and quite a number of other very impressive things. I’m just pleased that by losing my marbles, I could play my part in his great accomplishments. That may answer a question for some of you. Yes, I really have lost my marbles
