Our world is one where conventionality is applauded, where conforming and fitting in with the Jones’s is encouraged, where letting go of your passions in the place of choosing more ‘serious’ or mundane pastimes is deemed ‘wisdom’. I see people everywhere slaving away at jobs they hate just so that they can attain the physical status symbols that also don't make them happy. And the wisdom of this is rarely questioned. We even see people defending the current economic and social systems with all their zest and vigour, having never really taken the time to analyse or assess these systems objectively. Such is the power of fear within people to tear down mental constructs that they’ve clung to all their lives. Or perhaps it’s their family and friends that has clung to these beliefs and they dare not rock the boat. Whatever, the current systems on our planet are insanely unhealthy. I believe in us, and I believe that we are freeing our Planet. Bit by bit. We are doing it. I pledge myself to doing it more and more, with my voice, with my heart, with my music, with my stories. I believe in our children. I want them to grow in Love and Fearlessness. I want to inspire the mamas and the papas, the future mamas and the future papas. I carry the mountain magic and the condor song. I carry the timeless African shamans beat, the Apache courage and the flamenco soul and passion.
