Chairperson, University of the Third Age

The attitude and the presence that you held really moved me. I particularly loved the way you effortlessly weaved story, inquiry and an invitaion to feel and be present into a smorgasbord for soul. I have deep passion for the kind of work that you do.

Praise Poem

Want to celebrate the life of that special person…
sing their praises at birthdays or anniversaries?

I can create this for you –
an original poem based on their life story.
The 'String of Beads' book will include fiction, myth.
It'll have life stories out of writing/story-telling wordshops
as well as insights into creativity, imagination and the writing process.

I'm fascinated by how beads feature in many cultures and faiths, so the book will touch on this.

Beads have been created from organic materials such as grasses, cocoons, shells and ostrich eggs.
There are rosaries such as "Our Lady Queen of Africa‟ that are threaded with semi-precious beads. Its centrepiece is based on the Ethiopian cross.
Upheavals, atrocities and suffering have inspired other rosaries.

So if this appeals - let's set it up!
