“For it is the dawn that has come…”

May 19, 2019

A New Dawn

brilliant-dawn-and-clouds1“Yes, it is the dawn that has come. The titihya wakes from sleep, and goes about its work of forlorn crying. The sun tips with light the mountains of Ingeli and East Griqualand. The great valley of the Umzimkulu is still in darkness, but the light will come there. Ndotsheni is still in darkness, but the light will come there also. For it is a dawn that has come, as it has come for a thousand centuries, never failing. But when that dawn will come, of our emancipation, from the fear of bondage and the bondage of fear, why, that is a secret.”

brilliant (powerful and inspirational) writing by Alan Paton from his classic book ‘Cry the Beloved Country‘ (1948)

“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.

DRIVE TIME: The world’s best coastal road trips

May 8, 2019

A Tale of Two Cities (and vastly different Countries)

Coastal trips: One for the roads
xejqnxanw5dppkt3jyugvqpxgi
3 Great Coast Road, New Zealand
Surrounded by ocean, it’s hard to choose just one of our countless seaside routes to take a roadie on. However, we know when it comes to exploring the South Island, nothing beats the wild, weathered Great Coast Road. From Westport to Greymouth, the rugged 100km road clings to the coast as it traverses the old towns of Charleston, Fox River, Punakaiki and Rapahoe. Running the edge of the West Coast you’ll be treated to views of stormy surf beaches, wind-worn cliffs and moody skies.

Sharing some thoughts to live by (and put a “smile on your dial”…hopefully – from way back in 1998)

Craig's Quotes

man beach dawn“A man (OOPS, or woman) without a dream is destined never to fulfill his or her full potential in life. Never give up on your dream… but take time to smell the flowers on your very individual journey. Be yourself and daily count your blessings; then try to make a difference in the world – however small. Try to shine your own little ray of sunshine to make the lives of others easier in some small way.”

“You can derive the greatest pleasure from treading the wildest uncertain path down the ‘river of life…and just being you.”
