March 15th 2019 (Releasing Song)

Last night I was leafing through a diary I kept while in New Zealand back in 2014…..beginning to plan a trip for early next year to see my wonderful family again.

I revisited some of the beautiful Maori poetry I’d collected during my travels. This one touched me deeply:


“Flowing water

of tears

Bringing life

to the earth

Releasing song

Reviving spirit”


On waking this morning to the horrific news from Christchurch I was stunned. My diary remained open on the table as the newsreader delivered the headline story. I stared at the poem and the beautiful NZ picture on the adjacent page entitled “Song at Dawn”.

Music has been with me all day…….I’ve been releasing songs far and wide, on the wind that soothes the world.
