our brilliant friend. Hopefully good things are happening to you
everyday and your world is flushed with friendship. Last month was a
reminder to us personally of how great our wealth is when we are
loved. Our little cat, who has been our faithful friend and
companion for over seventeen years, died leaving us nothing but
memories but, oh my goodness, we certainly are rich in memories. We
have celebrated her life and her passing with a golden oldie story for all
animal lovers who know the sense of grief that accompanies saying our
a happier note, we have wonderful new stories and articles and poems and
performances to brighten your day and maybe even give you a chuckle.

Lyell, from New Zealand, who has already impressed us all
with her beautifully descriptive short stories, has shown extraordinary
courage in a revealing and hopefully helpful article about Chronic Fatigue
Syndrome. If you have ever suffered from the 'flu, you can't help
but empathise with this brave young woman who has had similar symptoms, for over half a

days. I'm sure you join with us in wishing
Rebekah good health and happiness and I'm sure you'll be fascinated by her
up-close and personal article.
Benefits of Positivity
I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, a lovely disease (not) that affects every aspect of your life. It causes, obviously, extreme fatigue, (I was sleeping 32 hours at a time then being awake 15 minutes only to fall back asleep), skin infections, stomach ulcers, loss of appetite, irritable bowel, muscle pain, joint pain, muscle wasting, loss of hair, lack of concentration, dizziness, migraines, just to name a few.

Creative Family, brings all three ingredients to us in two more poems which

There's a sudden strange silence
Amid the busy whirl around me
Disclosing the scars of my innocence
From a dreadful yesterday

Over the last couple of
months, Ronda Del Boccio from rural Missouri, in the United States, has
tickled our funny bones with article and story, and once again she gives
us a good grin as she moves into the area of true love and pure
magic. We hope you enjoy this tale as much as we did.
When I moved to the Ozarks, I never imagined that the magical land would have magical inhabitants. Nor would I ever have guessed that one of the creatures, right out of myths and fairy tales, would befriend me – and annoy me!
Tothill is a Bright Light English woman living in Spain who
displays a truly charming sense of love at its most understated and obvious.
Her stories tug at the heart strings with their sense of enduring
closeness no matter what challenges life may present.
Walter pulled himself up from his chair. He shielded his eyes from the sun and peered toward the mountains. The bluest sky, not a cloud to be seen, not even a puff or a slight trail.
‘Norah, you there? Come on out here,’ he yelled, without turning round.
last, but by no means least, is "The Rainbow Bridge", a
story claimed to have been written by at least half a dozen people
and also claimed by the American Indians as their own. We have
also added a few words to this endearing tear-jerker that touched
our hearts in a very special way as we went through the initial
throes of grief surrounding the death of our beloved cat. If
you have ever lost a four-legged friend and companion, we highly
recommend this tale of peace and love.

were surprised to hear from a Bright Light Café contributor that they
thought the standard of our performances was so high that they felt too
intimidated to perform their own material. This is a great shame and
certainly not our aim.
We have been professionals in the entertainment business all our lives and
our professional rates run well into the hundreds of dollars for every
individual piece of voice work. We are also two human beings who
believe that love and positivity are the only true way for us all to become
one big, happy, global family, albeit with occasional foibles. This is why
we have donated so much of our time and talent towards encouraging new
talent to focus on this objective.
Our services were meant to inspire, not intimidate. When an a writer
reads their own work, they are giving the listener a fascinating experience
of hearing the way the written work was originally heard in the author's
head and heart as well as further promoting that work.
We can only hope that you delight in the emerging talent we are promoting
and that our work lightens your heart whenever you visit us. We are
not aware of anywhere else on the web that provides professional voicing for
frëë, and we have been pleased to donate the vast benefits of this
otherwise very expensive service. Towards that positive outcome, we
now present several newly created performances for your entertainment.
