I’m now past the first phase of my 2012 LOVE & JOY tour – MAfrika2012 and I’m here just thinking “WOW” – I am so so so BLESSED!
Amazing friends and supporters have stepped in and thrown, time, money and creative resources and proven to me the power of Einstein statement ” if you can imagine it – you can create it” WOWZER Einstein you were right on it… Thank you!
Thank you for your genius, now that I’m really living it – I keep imagining more and more of us choosing love, choosing kindness and choosing care for each other…
TOGETHER WE REALLY CAN!
Thank you to all my new and old friends, thank you to all the schools, thank you to the 1500plus DEAR ONE’S who’ve seen MAfrika and continue to live her message of LOVE, JOY & UNITY…
I am so so so so grateful for this awesome, amazing and wonderful journey in which I get to live my talents & bliss and inspire others to do the same! LIFE IS GRAND!
As MAfrika would say “Mintyl HaXaku” (I LOVE YOU) and love you I do…

I’ve had the most awesome interactions with fellow joy activists
Volunteers who continue to make a remarkable joyful difference in the world – either as Care Clowns or Joy or Laughter Facilitators and it has got me thinking…
REMEMBER when you were little and you didn’t know of anything wrong – you might even have to go back to the womb (science has proven we are smiling in the womb by the way)… REMEMBER your inherit joy – it’s something we were all born with –
the knowing that this life:
it’s ALL beautiful, it’s all in harmony and it’s all an awesome amazing opportunity to play and learn and share and grow…
REMEMBER that smile that comes from your ALL knowing-ness
YOU ARE LOVED!!!
Remember you choose – so SMILE!
This youtube link can be put in a global context and when I do, I cry tears of joyful possibility…
The hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in KwaZulu are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA;
we will remember that there is something happening in our Planet;
that we are not as divided as our politics suggests;
that we are one people;
we are one nation;
and together, we will begin the next great chapter in Earth’s story with three words that will ring from coast to coast;
from sea to shining sea – Yes. We. Can.
It’s simple these 3 words… say them , be them and create new ways of what we can again and again
Yes we can … support each other
YES WE CAN create good news
Yes We can live joyfully together
YES WE CAN!!!
So EXCITING!!! Together with The Upliftment Programme, we have created this joyful, inspiring little 1minute film – “ONE WORD” and your vote can support us with a JOYful win!
Looking around these days, evidence of stress and depression is obvious. Few people seem to be laughing or smiling and the majority seem so caught up in resignation and cynisism. Yet coming from South Africa, I am part of a community super conscious of the power that individuals can have, our very own Madiba (Nelson Mandela) is a precious example of this. So I reckon if we ALL individually starting being the way of this one word – we would have a whole lot more joy on this planet and more joy means more peace and more solution-orientation…
We ALL have the potential to be the way of this ONE WORD and BE magnificent humanKIND.
So JOY sUPporters… please pop onto www.possiblefuturesfilmcontest.com register and vote for JOY…

The UP has been actively sharing joy since 2003, their main outreach has been to the children in hospitals & institutions, where trained UP volunteer Care Clowns commit to their local hospital/home every week and share joy there with the children, parents and staff. Currently in Southern Africa there are over 75 volunteer Care Clowns and a monthly JOYful Upliftment of approximately 3500 people. go to www.theup.org.za for more info
