About the author:
Robert Craig was born in Hollywood, California, and grew up in the San Francisco Bay area. He attended San Mateo High School and spent his teen years riding in an outlaw motorcycle club.
While attending the College of San Mateo, Craig began experiencing encounter groups focusing on his interest in psychology, an interest that led him to question long-held religious beliefs.
After college, Craig moved to Nevada City, California, where he and his wife raised two children. He worked in the motorcycle industry and was involved in motor sports for years before entering real estate. His love of machinery served him well in his new career developing both land and buildings.
Craig and his family now live in Vero Beach, Florida. His primary interest outside of work and family is the building of intimate and authentic community relationships.
When The Lights Go Out
An Intimate Self Portrait
Do not come to When the Lights Go Out expecting a self-help book or a simple road map for change. This is one man’s journey and, while it may inspire you to begin your own, your path is unique. All Robert Craig offers is an example.
Reeling from loss and grief, Craig finds himself doubting the heroic identity he created for himself over the years. This doubt leads to an arduous and challenging journey into his assumptions of self, his expectations, and his needs.
The result is a profoundly honest, raw account of Craig’s exploration into the previously uncharted depths of his soul. Seeking inspiration and assistance from multiple forms of expression, Craig journals and writes poetry, using photography to support his search and provide insight when mere words fail.
Join Craig as he discovers truth, faces dismal realities, and, ultimately, emerges with a new sense of self and hope. Gone is the untouchable, heroic facade he built for himself. In its place stands a man who is more vulnerable, but stronger. A man who realizes John Donne spoke truth when he said, “No man is an island.” A man willing to share his inspiring, tumultuous search with you.
