My Movie(s) 2016: "Imagine, Dream, Believe"


from Google searches (my “filing system”)

Are you a man or a mouse, c?

Just heard a man (young/a “millennial”??) somewhere phoned the police emergency number after seeing a mouse in his house, so the New Zealand police have announced a new number in addition to 111 this week! #

“Don’t worry how you’re going to do a job. Get it done, then wonder how you did it.”

May 14, 2019

“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 and fabulous?”
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.

You playing small does not serve the World. There is nothing enlightened about
shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We were born to manifest the glory of God that is in us. It’s not just within some of us.
It’s in everyone. When we let our own Light shine, we unconsciously give to
other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Marianne Williamson and Nelson Mandela.
A man whose generosity of spirit I admire so much.

My letter to Nelson Mandela (Madiba from 1995)

The Writing Journey
Mandela RWC
To whoever opens this parcel- please ensure this little gift gets to our new “out of the box” President of a year and a bit ago
148 Harris St
Gisborne 4010
New Zealand
2nd August 1995

Dear President Mandela

For many years you have been an inspiration (great) to me in “my exile” far away from ”the Beloved Country” (my wife is a Kiwi). I have often admired the generosity of the human spirit in you. Please accept this short book The End of the Line as a small token of appreciation for all that you have done for “the Beloved Country”..

I wrote this book and The New Rainbow to be published shortly for all the people of our beautiful country. My only regret is that I could not interest any South African publishers in them.

Congratulations on your ‘amabokoboko’, who played so proudly for you and all…

SOUTH AFRICA: The Facts and Stats (1994 from my letter to Walter Sisulu)

A South African Economist and Business Leader

Going back through my old writings on floppy discs (“antiques”) at the very beginning of “the writing journey” (in the days when I was “passionately pumping out letters to the various politicians in SA). It may be of interest in South Africa’s dramatic and relatively peaceful transition to democracy.
Perhaps I’ll turn into a new book. Oh no, not another one, c!

Dear Mr Sisulu
The following is a report that I wrote some time ago. I sent it to Mr Trevor Manuel on the 2nd of May this year, It was straight after the Election, but I heard that Mr Manuel had subsequently become a MP. I came across my report the other day and having hearde nothing, I wondered whether it had been received by your department. So I’m sending another one, just in case you are…
