A page dedicated to the wisdom of Michael Jackson…those who have discovered this unparalleled life quickly learn that Michael’s words touch on every aspect of the human condition…giving light and love to all who inhabit this planet. As with each and every article of CHOSENVOICES, this is an attempt at being a repository of Michael Truths.
And, as with every journey taken alongside Michael Jackson, the gift of love is received. Irina Eropolova, my beautiful kindred spirit and sister across the miles, has inspired this page of CHOSENVOICES. Just as Michael Jackson adored collaboration, she and I have collaborated to create it. We have chosen to make this an organic process adding quotes as we rediscover them. Journeys with Michael Jackson are unending, for we revisit, nourish and define, our depth of understanding increasing with each visit.
