It is amazing how brightly one individual soul can light an entire world!
“Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.”
― Anne Frank
This is the truth of us all, we have the capacity to shine a bright light on the lives of others!
Illumination is something we all need, we need a light source to help our life to thrive.
“We were born of stars and in death we will return to them. Let’s not strive to be black holes in the meantime. Let’s illuminate the world instead of darkening it, instead of tearing it to pieces. Let's prove we are worthy of being stardust.”
― Courtney M. Privett
This year has been characterised, by some unpredictable and potentially dark times. However, light and darkness can be purely a question of perspective. I've had times in my life that I perceived to be dark, only to look back at them as the times that opened even more light in my soul!
This is a time of year that is characterised by light. Many individuals choose to adorn and deck their houses and their front rooms with bright Christmas lights. We as human beings thrive in relation to light. Whether it be the natural light of the sun; the moon; the stars, or the light that shines from the company of others. Even artificial light is beneficial.
During a dark phase of my life, when I experienced throat cancer, I often found myself drawn to bright lights and found them very therapeutic. We as individuals have the capacity to shine brightly even after dark times.
At this time of year, I would like to share as much illumination with you as possible. This I do primarily through my creative work.
For example, today Monday, December 14, 2020 at 7:20 pm GMT I will share with you Charles Dickens bright illuminating story ‘A Christmas Carol’.
From TODAY December 14 through to and including December 24 (Christmas Eve) 2020 I will spend at least 15 to 20 minutes in a daily live reading of this incredible story! It will be wonderful to share with you this story of illumination; redemption; the true Christmas spirit and an awakening to the most precious of ALL gifts - LIFE.
Additionally, I share with you the bright light; the magic; the beauty and Christmas spirit infused album ‘A Christmas Voice’.

As well as providing the illumination discussed already, I also share with you the inspired mood lifting book of poetry – ‘Your GLAD Journey Companion’. The express purpose of this inspirational e-book was to provide an antidote to these overcast days. This e-book is a poetic encouragement to help individuals cope with Seasonal Affected Disorder (S.A.D).
Filled with gratitude, love, awakening and destiny, ‘Your GLAD Journey Companion’ was compiled by myself and my partner in rhyme Michelle Roche, here is a light inspired piece of poetry from Michelle:
"I see you in my darkness I see you in my light,
You’re all I ever needed to help me through my fight.
The battles they’ve been many but I won them a step at a time,
All I ever needed was you by my side.
You’ve been there since my beginning you’ll be there till my end,
The one I can always count on to always be my friend.
If only I could’ve seen you The way I see you now,
All those years ago when the doubters were all around.
I see you through my darkness,
I see you through my light,
You’re all I ever needed to help me through my fight".
You can order ‘Your GLAD Journey Companion’ for ONLY £3.79 and receive 2 FREE e-books!
May you continue to endeavour to fill your days, your life and the lives of others with as much illumination and light as possible.
Loves energy and light,
