Keep working on your dreams…

Most of us have a dream. And when we first find it, it seems so easy. Our confidence is high. This dream is achievable. And then after time the vision grows dimmer…

Sharing some Thoughts to Live By (and “put a smile on your dial”… hopefully)

Thought I’d share some thoughts written “many moons ago” about 1999, “metinks”(the reason I write is to share).  If they bring some joy to anyone through my writings, I’m very happy, so ENJOY…

“How apartheid was finally buried, without requiem; but in
joyous celebration, will remain forever in the hearts and minds
of a nation reborn. When tears came, and there was dampness in
the eyes of even the most stern, it was for putting the past in
the past and hoping for hope in the future.”
