Love Yourself.

See The Joy I have, No One can take away from me...
No one loaned it to me or hired me to do it. 
Rather, I was born with it and choose when I use it. 
It emanates through me like a piercing divine light.
And it emanates through me for the price of nothing.

Play, Dance and Draw. Love yourself. Release Your Inner Child!

God's given me a lot of Joy for free. Given me a voice to sing, hands to create, a body to move. And I've been putting it to use. 

See cause I know, every thought and action Fun and Awesome resides within me waiting for that perfect moment to reveal itself.

Back in Toronto. Back on Stage. Hoping for a Canadian Cultural Renaissance.

As 2012 drew to an end and 2013 was just to begin, I knew I wanted to be on stage. I wanted to be on stage donning a sarong around my waste, singing a melody appropriate for the Island of my forefathers while speaking words I learned in the land of my Birth - Oh, Canada.

So I sang, I sang of how we as Canadians need a sense of brotherhood, kinship. That we shouldn't be divided along racial, ethnic or class lines. We should find something that unites us. Something that breaks down the imagined barriers.

And so I pray that Toronto as a whole experiences a cultural renaissance which takes the best of the East and West and makes it relevant to our contemporary lives.
