“Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being.  Each of us owes the deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light.”

Albert Schweitzer

“His music brought joy to others and inspired them to believe in themselves.  His energyapple eleven and compassion touched people deeply.  The beauty and love he saw in everyone, allowed them to see it within themselves.  Adults were reminded of what it had been like to be children.  Children saw that it was possible to make their dreams come true.  People started to remember their similarities instead of their differences.  Soon the seventh child was known as Maestro all across the land because of the harmony he brought wherever he went.  When in his presence, people loved one another and forgot the things that seemed to separate them.”

THE 7TH CHILD…Brenda Jenkyns with Sirenapple nine

Holding us together with both hands, Michael Jackson is our window, opening to the fresh air of possibilities we never imagined.  Living life out loud, his light could not be denied in this difficult world, for he embraced injury and turned it into stellar art.  When lost in Michael’s eyes, our vision is made more acute, our empathy for the vulnerable defined.

~MICHAEL JACKSON  a benevolent influence who encourages growth, rather than controlling it~apple four

We write to tell the truth, possessing the miracle of  knowing.  Michael’s stories surround us for we have made the conscious choice to understand the greater truth that stands behind his art.  At the center are these tenets:  God chose Michael to give all he had  to show the world how to love ~God chose Michael to lead us to do the same.  With his perspective, guidance and velocity, we hear what we need to hear and say what we need to say.  An energy never overdrawn, Michael sings and dances across the planet for a higher purpose, rekindling inner lights which produce miraculous results.  His music, performance, image and life choices are on another level of self-expression which reaches inward for answers.  There is no ego in it, for ego hates being channeled, wanting to take credit, ill-defining rather than thirteen

Everything is important until it isn’t.  When Michael’s truths are known to an entire world, every foe vanquished and, Michael no longer being punished for things he didn’t do…our thoughts of yesterday fuel our hopes for tomorrow.

“If the real story were actually released into the culture…the fans would have some hope.  If the whole sorry mess were exposed for what it was and the world was truly informed about the truth of this story of Michael, and an acknowledgment was made of the damage, the fans could begin normal grieving.  And eventually they would heal.”

Reverend Barbara Kaufmannapple ten

Reverend Kaufmann gives truth to Michael’s voice of sanity in an insane world.  Every truth we share is a bit of gold that makes us richer.  Michael’s leadership provides oxygen for our collective spirit, while deflating egos which expect less and less from people, and never let facts interfere with a good story.

Michael Jackson to Kobe Bryant

“I’m very concerned about the plight of the International Global Warming Phenomenon.  I knew it was coming, but I wish they would have gotten people’s interest sooner.  But, it’s never too late.  It’s been described as a runaway train.  If we don’t stop it we’ll never get it back.  So, we have to fix it now.  That’s what I’m trying to do with EARTH SONG, HEAL THE WORLD, WE ARE THE WORLD…writing songs to open people’s consciousness.  I wish people  would listen to every word.”apple six

“I don’t consider myself religious in order to form part of a dogma in particular.  I consider myself to be spiritual.  I think there is a field of knowledge in which we experience our universality.  I read all kinds of religious literature because I believe that the truth is in all of them.”

“It’s hard to explain what a huge impact a day at Neverland had on the inner city kids and kids fighting life-threatening illnesses.  You would almost need to hear it from them.  I know we would receive letters from doctors, nurses, councilors and familyapple fifteen members that would absolutely make me cry.  Some of those kids were so sick…I think it was a miracle, if only for that one day, that they forgot about their illness.  And for the inner city kids, some who had never been out of their neighborhood, the miracle was that they got to see that there is hope.  During my 15 years at Neverland, sitting at a picnic table under a huge oak tree, I had several long conversations with Mr. Jackson about Neverland.  Looking into his eyes and hearing his voice, there was no doubt that the charity work done at Neverland was one of the most important things in his life.  I would all time eightlike to let the world know what a truly genuine person Mr. Jackson was.  After spending some time around Mr. Jackson and getting to understand what he was about , I learned how to be more charitable, not to be judgmental…TO DO.”

Of late, we have been subjected to a world pointing out violence and devastation, the paint still wet on a portrait of human suffering.  Many voices urge us toward separatism with a distrust of those whose path winds differently from ours.  Seeing into the heart of darkness is both horrifying and seductive, for it creates in it a fear which overtakes us with hopelessness and distrust…putting us in a constant state of great distress.  How contagious hatred can be.  Has hell taken the place of paradise?

When coming face to face with tales of madness, our answers must be drawn from the light.  This light shapes our way of seeing, focusing not on ourselves, but on others.  It shines on those outcast by circumstance, molding us into peaceful warriors…without limitations or condition…whose spirits never die.

“In the stillness  of the quiet, if we listen, we can hear the whisper of the heart giving strength to weakness, courage to fear, hope to despair.”

Howard Thurmanabout three

“Today, we stand together all around the world, joined in a common purpose, to remake the planet into a haven of joy and understanding and goodness.  No one should have to suffer, especially our children.  This time we must succeed.  This is for the children of the world.”

“What we need to learn from children isn’t childish.  Being with them connects us to the deeper wisdom of life which is ever present and only asks to be lived.  They know the solutions that lie waiting to be recognized in our own hearts.”

Michael Jacksonabout fourteen

In Rumi’s words: ~Not only the thirsty seek the water, the water as well seeks the thirsty~  Few have the gifts Michael Jackson possessed, and few have been chosen to cause a love moment of gargantuan size, encompassing the entire planet…to SAVE the planet.   Wisdom and solutions are to be found in the profound simplicity of a child’s heart.

“For without laughter, without joy, without smiles, without happiness, without magic…there’d be no children.

Their souls are the universe.  See it sparkle through their eyes and know we’re all constellations connected in the same, great big world of love.actual four

Love that exudes through the pores of children all over the world, ready to hug, kiss, talk to, laugh and comfort anyone and everyone!  To them, everyone deserves that!  There are no limitations and conditions to their heart.

Oh, we can learn so much from children!”

Khalil Gibran tells us that ~The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom, but rather, leads to the threshold of your mind~  Michael Jackson has led us as the most powerful teacher of our time, for he touches every age, every race, every culture, every religion.  Through his artistry and his mantra of What do you need and how can I help…all is revealed:about seven

~Now be silent.  Let the One who creates the words speak~ 

~He made the door

~He made the lock

~He also made the key


I believe that Nelson Mandela was correct when he said…History will judge us by the difference we make in the everyday lives of children.

In the light of morning, in the middle of the night, when swimming in doubt or drowning in pain, in the joy of a giggle, when faith is clouded, when a need for escape overtakes us, when dancing is the only thing that will help, when singing at the top of our voices empowers…we find our sanctuary in MICHAEL JACKSON.  He shows us the changes that need to be made…turning random acts of kindness into INTENTIONAL ACTS OF KINDNESS.

Our hearts and minds have been touched profoundly this month.  Two treasures revealed…Greg Gorman’s photograph of Michael the Dancer, deep in creative thought…and, the exquisite parable written by Brenda Jenkyns with the magnificent Siren and her beautiful paintings.  These treasures offer hours of study and layers of learning, true to Michael Jackson Excellence…giving blood and soul to the work.

“The Maestro devoted his life to giving all of himself to the world.  Eventually, the seventh childtime came when he chose to close his eyes for the last time and melt into the melody again, in the form of pure love.  At that instant, an exquisite glow radiated out across the land, kindling Sparks of Creation within the hearts of people everywhere. The people looked at each other in a new way, and saw  that there were no differences between them.  The Knowledge of Oneness shone away thoughts of separation.  They chose to devote their lives to becoming their true selves, inspired by the Maestro.  They did this by expressing their creativity, and by loving one another as he had loved them.  Many who hadn’t known the Maestro in life felt their hearts open, and began to remember the Oneness that had been so long forgotten.  The land was filled with artists, dancers, writers, bakers, teachers, healers and endless other expressions of the soul.  The Dance of Life that the Maestro had  demonstrated became their Truth.  They were wrapped in His Beloved arms once again. “

Brenda Jenkyns and Siren

The 7th Child is dedicated FOR MICHAEL, OUR MAESTRO.  It is a masterpiece of word and picture…a parable offering greater wisdom with each visit.

Greg Gorman’s photograph offers layers of discussion and has garnered many ABOUT TWENTYviewpoints.  For me, it has been a pictorial definition of Siren’s words:  Heaven hath no beauty greater than this.  It has haunted my dreams, setting me aright with a key to rekindling my creativity.  After a month of quiet at the page, both The 7th Child and the Gorman photograph have inspired me to new words.  Finding REFUGE in Michael’s artistry and in the artistry of those inspired by him, such sanctuary has given new blood pulsing through my veins…expressions of my soul…finding my true self.about ten
