"Happy 2016!
I’m so grateful for all the responses I received. I love hearing how different people celebrate in their own unique ways. But another theme that kept coming up across Twitter and Facebook is change, the fear and sadness of change. Lord Knows I’ve been through a tremendous amount of change this past year myself. The interesting thing is, when I break it all down, embracing the new is exciting. It feels right. It’s even easy and inspiring. The only difficult thing... is releasing the past, letting go of what I knew, what had become familiar, whether good or bad.
I experienced this in a most profound manner 7 years ago. You see, today is the anniversary of my Dad’s passing. I remember it like it was yesterday: laying my head on his chest as he lie on the floor, no pulse but still warm like he was only sleeping. His body looked exactly the same as it did yesterday, even his face still had a bit of that Bobby Gene smirk-a-smile. Yet I knew he wasn’t in there. I could feel it. I remember looking down at him and saying out loud, “Dad, what were you thinking?” But I knew what he was thinking. He was ready to move on and release his family from the drama and pain of his battle with cancer. What I really meant by that question was: “Dad, what are WE supposed to do now? Who are we without you? Who am I? What do I do with all this love I have for you? With the 47 years of relationship we had?”
For a couple of years I would go through my day and then suddenly burst into tears. Nothing could take that pain away. My dad was gone. That was that. None of it made sense. But then I realized there was something else going on as well. I found that in the moments I was laughing or experiencing great joy or appreciation or standing in awe of a sunset or a musical performance, or my daughter’s genius sense of humor, I could feel him. He was there with me. I could even sometimes hear him. We were sharing those moments. It’s as if, because in his passing he had elevated himself to such wholeness, the only way for me to be with him was to resonate with the same love and joy he was now living in.
In this new year, 2016, we will all inevitably be faced with more change. And with change will come some fear. But I recognize that the fear comes from letting go of the known. And I trust, according to what I’ve experienced, that by letting go of that fear and the safety of the known, I am released to experience greater inspiration, curiosity, joy and an inner knowing that expansion is what life is all about.
Thank you, Dad, for continuing to teach me throughout my life. And for elevating my human experience even while you are gliding with the Angels in Heaven.

This month is Fame Reunion Month as we post video of all the songs performed at last months Fame reunion Concert in Italy and pretty much the whole show, with just a few brief minutes missing. This wouldn't have been possible without the generosity of Patrick Bron who sent us video of the show. Thank you Patrick it's much appreciated.  Plus there's my own views on the concert and my diaries of my behind the scene adventures!
On Christmas Eve Janet Jackson made the following announcement:
"Hey you guys… Happy Holidays to each and every one of you. I need you to know, I learned today, from my doctors that I must have surgery soon. It breaks my heart to tell you that I am forced to postpone the Unbreakable Tour until the spring. Every date will be rescheduled. Please hold on to your tickets. They will be honored in a special way when the new schedule is announced. Please pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time. There will be no further comment. I love you all so much and am ever grateful for your understanding and your love. Gon’ b alright"
We wish Janet well and a speedy recovery. 
Have a good month and Have a wonderful 2016,
