It all begins
with a vision.

Hello Everyone,

As the Year 1999 comes to a close we will all look back from where we have travelled. Remember when you were younger and calculated how old you were going to be when the Year 2000 arrived. Well, it is only a matter of minutes. Are you where you thought you would be?

Throughout our journey of life we travel many paths, which in turn lead to meeting many strangers. WE were all once strangers to each other and for one reason or another turned strangers into friends.

My circle is small.

I am grateful that you are part of my circle.

I would like to share with you a message that was shared with me some years ago by my dear friend, Dr. Elaine Stroud.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves,

"Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?"


"Who are you not to be?"

You are a child of God.

Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking,
So that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the Glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us, it's in EVERYONE.
And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give others permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others."


Wishing you and yours all the best for the YEAR 2000,

Until we meet again,
