Dear Debbie, Michelle. Wow! Thank you so much for all the kind words of appreciation. I have no doubt that JBL is beaming a very clear signal, because it actually reached me across the world from your US base all the way to South Korea! It is interesting to listen to an author and an artist having meaningful conversations. It is funny because I think of myself more like an artist, it is more fluid, more fitting to my current state of mind which is one which wanders a lot and drift, always on the look out for the next story that needs to be told. Charles Bukowski said: “An intellectual says a simple thing in a hard way. An artist says a hard thing in a simple way.” The question you asked in your podcast is : “Where are you in your ability to beam out a clear signal?” I believe that your light is your essence and you have a duty to yourself to let that light shine, and in the process you are hoping that all the curious and lost souls out there will be drawn to it and will come to you for clarity and comfort. And This Is My Quest!
Hey Joanne! We mentioned you again in episode 35. I woke up with an idea 💡. What if we had you on our show and you read aloud a few of YOUR favorite excerpts from your book?? Also, I’ve sent you a few messages at fb but you haven’t seen them so they maybe in your spam file (fb Messenger version). 🤗
Hey Debbie. Wow Wow! Feeling blessed with attention! I listened to your podcast. So glad you purchased my book 😊🙏📖! You are right it is the type of book which you can open randomly and read something out of the blue that will hopefully nourish your mind. Thank you for reading that extract on your podcast. Glad to hear it resonates with you. I will be delighted to join you and michelle on your podcast to read some extract from my book. I like this format. It suits me. Let me know when and how we can connect bearing in mind 🇺🇸 and 🇰🇷 time zone. 🤗
