31 December - Thought For The Week

February 4, 2011

I wish you well as you embark
On your journey of  discovery,
Knowing it is a path you must walk alone.

And although I cannot aid your walking,
I pray that my love
Will light each step you take,
And my memory will bring
Each dream closer.

I am, now and always your friend,
To be found
In the sanctuary and solitude of slumber.
I hold a light to your spirit
And salute who you are.

Carry me in your heart,
As I will carry you in mine.

24 December - Thought For The Week

February 4, 2011
Your life is a book,
You write each day.

You create the  story
And what you want to  say.

You decide where you are  going,
Based on where you come  from.

But to make sense of  it all
It helps to know
which page you are on.

19 December - Everything Happens For A Reason

February 4, 2011

A brand new pastor and his wife, newly assigned to their first ministry, while planning to reopen a church in suburban Brooklyn , arrived in early October excited about their opportunities.
 
When they saw their church, it was very run down and needed much work. They set a goal to have everything done in time to have their first service on Christmas Eve.

They worked hard, repairing pews, plastering walls, painting, etc, and on December 18 were ahead of schedule and just about finished.  On ...

17 December - Thought For The Week

February 4, 2011

Allow a moment to pass, sand through the hourglass.
Try to refrain from asking too many questions,
Some things are best left alone.
Too much understanding doesn’t always show the truth…
Analysis robs things of true meaning,
Undone, a poem is merely words,
And seeing isn’t always believing,
Merely the result of a turning world.

13 December - A Woman Worth Helping

February 4, 2011

Last week I was fortunate enough to go to Khayelitsha with some friends to drop off a trailer full of stuff for a small nursery school to sell at their annual rummage sale. I was humbled and inspired by what we found there. Ilitha School is no more than a container that has been brightly painted and now serves as the home to 40 young children daily. The woman behind the school is the bubbly and infectuous Christine Jita, and to hear her talk about her young students and her vision for growi...

10 December - Thought For The Week

February 4, 2011


I had a dream come true today
And in its coming - my world turned,
And left me standing to survey
The path by which I had come.

It was a winding road,
And in its windings flowers grew
In the memory of my footprints.

I had thought to see
A single set wind towards me,
But with mine followed many more
Of the ones who had walked
Together with me on that path.

And I was content that I had not walked alone,
But that you had been there as I travelled,
And your presence made the passing easier.

6 December - Introducing my next Live Your Dreams Artists

February 4, 2011

As the album has been coming to an end it felt right to help my next Live Your Dreams Artist take a step in their career. So, the day after I finished in studio with Paul, a lovely young singer Beverly spent the day with him working on two demos. I managed to pop in on my way to the airport and get this quick clip of her to let all my Future Owners see another person they have helped!

An exerpt from the letter Beverly sent me:

I studied drama at school (Pro Arte Alphen Park) for 5 years -...

If you do not let go of what holds you back,

You can never know

What heights you may have reached,

Had you stretched for them unfettered.
