We will do it together.

It has always been my dream to inspire people to find their purpose and run with it. My way of doing it is through writing songs. Recently I was (*1)made aware of a boy who needed help. Quickly a song was born, released with a lot of love from David Zipse’s music production skills and the powerful delivery of Indosakusa The Morning Star.
And as everybody knows: good stuff happens in three’s: next (*2)Woordfees asked submissions for video content and we rushed to make the week deadline that was given (I was still on holiday in Kwazulu Natal) We made it happen! #Together.
Now the challenge is to get the song out to the world to do its thing: inspire and empower people! (*3)You are the third magic component: by watching (and sharing) the video you can show your support.

Why else write another song?

To me this is a song that matters. What a privilege to collaborate with David Zipse and Indosakusa The Morning Star. Thank you for being part of the people who work together to make the world a better place: one song at a time. And for you listening, sharing and being part of the magical world of healing with music.

A Song For Rodwell

Rodwell is nine years old and lives in Zimbabwe. He has a dream to become a doctor, to heal the world.

Friday, 9 June his grandmother took him to an all-night-church meeting. While sleeping with the other children he was attacked by a hyena.

He now needs a new nose, cheeks, upper-lip and left eye. Rodwell is in good spirits in hospital keeping up with his schoolwork- especially Maths and English.

He arrived in South Africa last week where a miracle medical team is engineering his future and face.

Could it be that a boy can really heal the world? Yes, by bringing people and their gifts together.

Will it cost a lot? Yes, about one million rands, one million opportunities to show you care.

Can you give a hand? Yes, Rodwell represents every child with a dream. He becomes the voice of many reaching out to bring connection between people again- in a World that relies too much on just WIFI.

Face the World

Chorus:
Face the world every day
A world to face
Just a boy with a dream to heal the world
Just a boy for the world to heal

Go to church
But also be church

Just a boy for the world to heal

Reaching out
And allow to be touched
Together we are stronger
I love the way we are all gifted

There are hyenas lurking
Making prey of the innocent
After the maul what emerges
Is a face of the future
Who has to face the world every day

Chorus:
Face the world every day
A world to face
Just a boy with a dream to heal the world
Just a boy for the world to heal
Hold my hand and we will do it together

Hold my hand and we will do it together
We can face the world together

when you join the story

Yessss, it happened! Encore Marthie! A sold out show with Bram Potgieter as part of #HeuerHuiskonserte in Stellenbosch 9 June 2021. The highlight was this picture Gershwynn created for me as a gift. I asked for his biography and discovered- without knowing it- I was part of it! It just shows you never know when and how you become part of someone else’s story! I am sharing his bio below…
If you missed the show: you can buy the 25 songs : 25 years’ best songs in music by clicking on the link below OR you can book a House Concert at your place!

“GERSHWYNN LEO KAY, BORN 03 MARCH 1972

The first born of four siblings and only one that is left-handed. I started drawing before I can remember and never seen myself as an artist but my art as a hobby. When I draw or paint I go into my own world and it relaxes me and brings me peace that just cannot be explained. I’m a Pisces and very much a dreamer.

Draughtsman by profession for over 15 years in construction. I worked in Cape Town, Johannesburg and in Mozambique. Working away from home for months at a time I use to do self-portraits of work colleagues with no charge, simply because I enjoyed the challenge.

Since COVID-19 pandemic forced me to be unemployed from construction, I’ve found myself with lots of time on my hands. Time I used to paint and escape from the problems and the world.

This is when I met Marthie Nel that inspired me with her energy and straight forwardness, telling that I have a talent and that she is not one bit sorry for me sitting at home jobless and I’m doing nothing with it. I told her that I did not like critics, that’s why I do not put myself out there for the world to shoot me down. That I Love my art and I’m my own biggest fan. I am always amazed with myself when I finish a drawing or painting and could stare at it for hours. I fear people will not appreciate my art and see what I see.

Marthie Nel told me “who cares, that there will always be critics and that I must take that negative criticism and turn it around and learn from it and make it a positive”. She then did the most amazing thing, she told me that she is planning a concert to promote my paintings! WOW! Now if that’s not motivation and believing in somebody, then I don’t know what is!

After advertising my paintings on my WhatsApp up status, I sold my first painting for a whopping R2500! The buyer told me the painting was worth every rand.

With this new found inspiration, I want to paint as much as I can, it’s always been my passion, more no With this new found inspiration, I want to paint as much as I can, it’s always been my passion, more now so than ever!

My family and friends always believed in me, it’s time I do too.”

The Bridge Builder Generation

Now is the time- to stop building walls and start Building bridges.
Now is the time to demonstrate to society- unite and build more bridges .
Now is the time -To teach our kids statements and talks at home of-how to build bridges.

Let us take time -to have enough courage 
Let us take time- to take people with us – When we cross the bridge….
Let us take time- I can show you how- To get to the other side.

Chorus: Let us be The Bridge Builder Generation
Let them call us the ones who made them proud
Let the generations to come 
Say we did it all with love
Let’s break free from the shacks and the shackles
We rise above it all 
finding a bright new future
With love from me to you

We build too many walls 
and not enough bridges.        
Ooh there’s Too many walls
Let’s build more bridges

No batteries required

There’s nothing like the first time you press down on a piano key and it returns a sound. It is instant gratification that doesn’t need anything more than swinging feet and curious fingers. My first moment happened at my grandmother’s house and that piano was the same one I practiced on for my final piano exam. We spent hours together every day! 3 hours of serious practice, 1 hour of singing and then my treat: 1 hour of songwriting! You can’t hug a piano but if you could, I would. The next best thing would be tuning it and taking care of it.

I have a show 9 June at Heuer Musikhaus and the drumroll is which piano to play on at that location. I give the pianos names (like people) because none of them are alike: some are like ponytail girls and others like lazy old ladies. My favorite would be the sexy, warm-tone colored one…
Once you meet the lot at Heuer Musikhaus it’s like becoming family – from spotting the huge piano facade to entering the door and stepping on the piano gadget for hand sanitizer to every friendly face who calls the space their home away from home (aka work). No piano is too heavy or location too high or remote to be delivered, even for a three week holiday where, a crane was needed to finish the task. (You can view the miracle here: bit.ly/3wWaxA0) More information about pianos (and other music gadgets) can be found here: www.wheuer.co.za.

Now if you want to see some piano-action (and singing) the #EncoreMarthie show is from 19-21:00. Tickets are available at Quicket (link below) or at the door.

I hope to see you there! (If you can not make it you can download the Encore Marthie album with 25 Top Songs here bit.ly/34unCnY)

Wie sou jou kon liefhê soos ek?
Kom lê hier in my liefde
Wie sal jou kan liefhê soos ek?
Skuil in my karos van liefde

Ek glo in liefde
Wat so lekker met my kop kan mors
Ek glo in jou:
`n duisend soene op my lyf kan los

Ek nooi die maan
En ek nooi die son
Versamel die sterre in die lug
Vanaand sal ons waak oor jou
Ja, ons sal waak oor jou.

Marmite Moves

Recently I ran out of marmite(yes I am one of those crazy people that eat it on toast). I was amazed to find out that my favorite grocery shop also ran out. To discover there are two factories in the world producing marmite: in England and South Africa.
Funny thing about marmite is: it’s iconic bottle design has stayed the same for over a hundred years!

“A famous German scientist, Justus Freiherr Von Liebig (12th May 1803 – 18th April 1873) accidentally discovered that the waste product derived from yeast used in brewing beer could be made into a meaty flavoured concentrate that was completely vegetarian.

This scientist and professor, considered to be the founder of organic chemistry, was the first to make and sell bouillon, a meat extract commercially before refrigeration due to it being concentrated. So not only did he discover what eventually became Marmite, but he developed the process for beef extract and founded a company called Liebig Extract of Meat Company, which eventually trademarked as OXO.” There is actually a marmite museum (read more bit.ly/2SJZ1c8) and it’s use are limited in e.g. Australia because the poor use it to brew alcohol with. It does have a high Vit B12 content.

But it’s true: you either love it or hate it. Makes me think: what accidents can you can come up with today that will take 100 years more to develop in a sellable iconic format, stay popular for another hundred years and become part of family culture.

Sounds to me like music… you stumble upon the magic chord progression, add a melody on top and out pops something timeless that becomes part of culture: is dangerous to some, beneficial to others, divides and unifies.
Looks like we need to make more mistakes to get to the magic potions quicker!

Finishing strong

To stay motivated for the last mile has been something I have had on my mind recently. The idea of finishing the race you started a while ago… like getting your last child through grade 12(with a driver’s license)

I recently saw a hilarious video of tortoise and hare which reminded me sooo much of myself- it is not that I don’t have the ability tp finish it is just I get distracted easily… you can watch the video here bit.ly/3vdGd3J
Dis I mention I have a show it’s called ‘Encore Marthie!’ And celebrates 25 years of music and my best songwriting(ok all the encores did not fit on the program but we did pur best) The album will be ready soon to download and streaming information for the show is in the works!
You can join me for this celebration
KEEP THE DATE: Wednesday, 9 June 2021, 7pm, Heuer Musichaus, Stellenbosch.
TICKETS: are available through Quicket(see link below)
Thank you for all you support throughout many years: together we have made the memories matter and celebrated LIFE and walking the miles with you were the highlight!

Ready Steady…, ready steady…, ready steady….

Go!
I have a Show!
I can’t wait to share it with you! I. Am. Super. Excited.
Went from ✔️bored(and daydreaming) to ✔️focused flow to ✔️frazzled. Apparently it’s a thing…
Get a buddy to breath with and don’t eat the marshmallow immediately because if you wait a bit… you get TWO! You can watch Daniel Goleman’s talk on ‘Focus the Hidden Driver of Excellence’ here bit.ly/33tDUgs.
Recently I have been overwhelmed trying to get back in the driver’s seat of what I believe my life looked like when I was still ‘in control’ before COVID. There is beauty in being forced to stand still and evaluate (and experience) the opposite of normal.

So: back to the show! Hans said yes for the venue: Heuer Musichaus(it has enough pianoooos!).Bram is playing piano(we have indeed been making music and magic together for 25 years!). Dave will be making sure the sound is sound. Wendy is helping me keep my hat on in putting it together. And Gerald is in charge of graphic design. Natalie cut my hair and …and …and… so many people lining up with their talents to create a wonderful event just for you!
I even changed my theme from pretty gospel to 25 YEARS OF THE BEST SONGS IN MY MUSIC CATALOGUE. (Afr&Eng).

Please join me- link below(if I get the streaming brain-waved it will be online too) I am also releasing a special edition album via bandcamp.

You do you, do it well, do it again! Encore to you, encore to women, encore to men, encore to families, encore to life: it’s time to step into your light(again)
Happy mother’s day!

Did you fall asleep?

Then it’s time to wake up again! The photo is Spike our Hungarian Viszla who recently found his way on anew adventure: a day at the beach and he was having fun all the way. He was particularly interested in the birds on the deep side of the waves.

These days I have to pinch myself to remember that there is a life beyond COVID. I see it as the Third World War with the soldiers being the nurses and doctors, researches and even the motorcyclists delivering food… Is it over? No- but we are still in the land of the living…So better make the day count.
This is one of my favorite children’s stories(is it for children?🤔) about nagging lives/wives, getting away from it all and dragging your beard behind you twenty years later… Quick! Grab a razor! This could become us!
“”Rip Van Winkle” is set in the years before and after the American Revolutionary War in a village at the foot of New York’s Catskill Mountains where Rip Van Winkle, a Dutch-American villager, lives. One autumn day, Van Winkle wanders into the mountains with his dog Wolf to escape his wife’s nagging. He hears his name called out and sees a man wearing antiquated Dutch clothing; he is carrying a keg up the mountain and requires help. Together, the man and Wolf proceed to a hollow in which Rip discovers the source of thunderous noises: a group of ornately dressed and bearded men who are playing nine-pins.

Van Winkle does not ask who they are or how they know his name. Instead, he begins to drink some of their liquor and soon falls asleep. When he awakens on the mountain, he discovers shocking changes: his musket is rotting and rusty, his beard is a foot long, and his dog is nowhere to be found. He returns to his village, where he recognizes no one. He arrives just after an election, and people ask how he voted. Never having cast a ballot in his life, he proclaims himself a faithful subject of King George III, unaware that the American Revolution has taken place, and nearly gets himself into trouble with the townspeople until one elderly woman recognizes him as the long-lost Rip Van Winkle.

King George’s portrait on the inn’s sign has been replaced with one of George Washington. Van Winkle learns that most of his friends were killed fighting in the American Revolution. He is also disturbed to find another man called Rip Van Winkle; it is his son, now grown up. Van Winkle also discovers that his wife died some time ago but is not saddened by the news. He learns that the men whom he met in the mountains are rumored to be the ghosts of Henry Hudson’s crew from his ship, the Halve Maen. He also realizes that he has been away from the village for at least 20 years. His grown daughter takes him in and he resumes his usual idleness. His strange tale is solemnly taken to heart by the Dutch settlers, particularly by the children who say that, whenever thunder is heard, the men in the mountains must be playing nine-pins.” Source: Wikipedia

Anyway you’ll see I am awakening to many things including Music, Foot Care and Empowering… Are you ready for the thunder?

>Song of the week is my ‘I am the future’- wake up and feel it(your purpose) sung by Given Gisela. It is one of my personal favorites!
I am the future
V1: Will I make a difference, can I pay the price?

There’s so much work to do, Mountains to climb

Looking for answers, looking for leaders

Looking for someone to believe

V2: There’s so much good to fight for, history to be made

We can be the generation to transform and build

Wipe out world hunger, bring prosperity and peace

Bring and end and heal HIV

V3: If suffering is not your own, nor the problems of the world

Never underestimate the influence you can have

History showed courage, bought with sacrifice and love

History’s shown hope is contagious

Chorus: I am the leaders, I am the future

I am the one that you depend on to make the world grand

So be a Mandela, a mother Theresa

You think it’s up to kings and presidents, you’re wrong

It’s not what is out there, it is not where you’re from

It is the heart inside to know where you belong

So wake up and feel it

As long as this heart beats strong

The future is in my hands and I can change the world

The future is in my hands and I can change the world

Coda:Yes! I’m a believer, I am the future

I am the one that you depend on to make you proud

For the children

Terry Fox? Ever heard of him? He ran for the children: a marathon a day, every day in his Marathon of Hope…on a prosthetic leg. In 2005 Canada commemorated his legacy with a loonie coin in his honor. Wow! What a man!
“After losing his right leg to cancer at age 18, Terry Fox decided to run across Canada to raise awareness and money for cancer research. With the use of a customized running prothesis, he set out from St. John’s, Newfoundland, on 12 April 1980 and covered 5,373 km in 143 days — an average of 42 km (26 miles) per day. He was forced to stop his Marathon of Hope outside Thunder Bay, Ontario, on 1 September 1980, when cancer had invaded his lungs. He died one month before his 23rd birthday.” bit.ly/3rpveBv

Why does his story inspire me so much? He looked around at other people’s pain and struggles(the year in the pediatric cancer ward) and decided to change the future, trained 14 months and did it. No he did not finish, he did not have to: what he started made what he stood for unstoppable: Hope!
If you have ever been to Canada you will know harsh weather conditions will be meeting you on the road. There will be one million reasons why not to continue. Yet a promise is a promise. 40 years later the Terry Fox run has become part of the Canadian culture still raising awareness and money for Cancer research rippling out to many countries and setting the pace for other athletes to rise to their abilities.

What marathon doe you have to run today? And what excuse(s) have you come up with? And is there a Terry you can find in yourself to decide, overcome, persevere and inspire your world with by just looking around and coin it for the next generation. If you have two legs you have double the opportunity than Terry had to do it…

I am walking 5km today- let’s see where the road takes me. Hope to see you there.

> Song of the week: ‘Let’s make cancer history’ I wrote this song for a Cansa event where they were celebrating the volunteers who support cancer patients. It was inspired by them and my mother-in-law who was champing her lung cancer on another continent. You often hear the stories of the people who ‘carry the handbags’ while waiting to finish cancer treatments: the volunteers.
3 November 2005

You lead the way to new beginnings,
I see the light today

One voice can change the world around us

One by one –
I volunteer to be strong

Every survivor has a story –
You give me reasons to believe

I make a difference everyday

In every life – I cross along my way

You were there for me,
You walked with me,
You took care of me

Oh you loved me,
Oh you loved me.

You gave your time to me,
Your generosity,
Your financial support

It got me through,
It got me through

I remember your passion-
Giving tirelessly

To make a success,
To make cancer history

Let’s make, We can …
make Cancer history
One by one –
I volunteer to be strong

The Wait

I see it as progress while you are not doing anything- or rather you are doing a lot but you can’t measure your progress as easily as you sometimes need to- to realize your progress.
These days I am writing a story and a song a day. Just because if I don’t it hangs onto my mind and wont let go of it otherwise- the story.
So I will share with you my ✔️story, my ✔️insight(TedX talkabout procrastination and feeling ‘stuck’: ability, performance & self-worth bit.ly/3pkMs1Q) and a ✔️resource of wisdom(The Tao of Pooh bit.ly/2ZfoQ41).

“The main problem with this great obsession for saving time is very simple: you can’t save time. You can only spend it. But you can spend it wisely or foolishly.”
Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh.

Here is the story…

“Are you done with building the pyramid yet? ”
Sarah puts the plate of porridge on the table in front of Moses.
“No, but we are now faster at baking the bricks and transporting them to the building site,”
Moses leans back in his chair ”I think we are going to start the second layer of bricks today(sighs). It took years to lay the foundation stones! ”
“We are not going to finish today, tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow Sara,” and then softer “To build a pyramid takes many years, maybe longer than our lifetime,
but it will be a beacon for generations to come from how we lived and what we
stood for. Our children’s children will know that we have envisioned, done to accomplish it and done it right from the start.
If I do not do my part today, the pyramid will definitely not be completed.”
“Wait I have to go!” He moves his chair and kisses Sara before getting direction to where the sun is already baking down on the sand dunes and he sees the ends of the first pyramid sticking out.
Today he will do his part, he thinks, because today is a new day.

Waiting For Amen(Lyrics by Igg)
bit.ly/2ZfFkZZ
Verse 1:
Can you tell me how to make it
Through another day
From the wonder of creation
To the stench of its decay
From the promise of the dawn
To the horror of the night
I’ll keep on lying low today and,
Staying out of sight
I’ll stay out of sight

Chorus:
Lightning flashes in the midnight sky again
Distant thunder rolling out the rain
Hot wind blowing through my mind again
I’m just a prayer unanswered
Waiting for Amen

Verse 2:
The nightmares flowing through my blood
Are generations deep
I’d love to show them all to you
But they’ll just have to keep
Please whisper all your secrets
I’ll tell you all my lies
So you can have redemption
And I can sympathize
I’ll just sympathize

Bridge
Just like a prayer unfolding
I stumble on my way
A simple hymn that I’m still singing
Waiting for Amen
Waiting for my sweet Amen

Chorus:
Lightning flashes in the midnight sky again
Distant thunder rolling out the rain
Bloodwind blowing through the night again
I am just a dusty prayer
Waiting for Amen
