Brilliant!  june 2007

Happy June!  We hope the year has been going brilliantly for you so far and that the plans you made and the goals you set back in January are well on their way to fruition.

Here at Bright Light, we are currently hard at work putting the finishing touches to a new personal awareness audio CD/digital download product scheduled for release in July. 
Parenting Myself and My Spiritual Home are powerful guided visualisations designed to help heal the emotional hurts that may have occurred to us as children.  These visualisations are written, produced and presented by the sensitive and caring creative genius behind all Bright Light products, Barbara Llewellyn.  Barbara's gentle and soothing voice will, as always, take you on a safe, empowering journey to meet your spiritual parents and spend time with them in your own spiritual home.  I am extremely privileged to witness and experience the development of Barbara's personal awareness programs and I can say that this duet of healing visualisations will be of huge benefit to many people.  So, stay tuned for more information in the next newsletter, because one of the benefits of being a "Brilliant!" subscriber is the access to pre-release products and special discount offers.

As a "Brilliant!" subscriber, you know that positive, uplifting and empowering entertainment is the main attraction at the Bright Light websites.  The CDs, books and digital downloads we develop and market through our
Bright Light Multimedia publishing website, and the content presented in over 400 pages of poems, short stories, articles, music, art and multimedia at The Bright Light Café are all crafted or chosen to fit our ongoing goal to provide an online environment that unites, rather than divides, everyone who visits our sites.  To that end, we work very hard to ensure all product and content is free from hate, racism, sexism, violence, crudity, pessimism, cynicism, and political and religious beliefs that may offend any of our valued customers and visitors.

We know the world has many negative and dark attributes and there are plenty of places on the web where you can find this sort of fare, but not at Bright Light.  We are very specific in our
guidelines for submissions to The Bright Light Café about what is acceptable and creative pieces that don't fit those specifications (no matter how well crafted they may be) are immediately rejected.  So it always surprises me when we receive material that is clearly outside the Bright Light charter, and I can only think that the folks who submit these items have not read our guidelines.  To those of you who may be considering submitting your creative work to us for possible global showcasing, I ask that you please be sure to read and comprehend our guidelines - and also take a quick tour around the site to gain a better understanding of the type of material that your potential audience is expecting to see.  Thankyou.  Oh, and when you do submit your work, please use our online submission form, as it will ensure your work is reviewed in a timely manner through our established, formal procedure.  We occasionally receive submissions via email and unfortunately they tend to get buried in the flood of daily emails and are sometimes not found for months (or longer), making it a frustration for submitter and receiver alike.

Alumni News

One of our youngest contributors to The Bright Light Café is the multi-talented Taylor Dean, from Australia.  Taylor's first appearance at the Café was when she was just nine years old.  Taylor wrote and performed her own fun poem called Kids, and then contributed an original piano piece called Drifting Memories.  She also performed two other pieces from the Café - Barbara Llewellyn's humorous poem, Teeth and another fun poem by the late Joan Ridley, The Lost Wallet.

Taylor is also an extremely talented ice skater and in the past couple of years has emerged as one of the rising young stars on the Australian skating scene.  We just heard that Taylor has achieved second-place at a National skating meet over the past weekend, so on behalf of everyone at Bright Light and all her fellow contributors and "Brilliant!" subscribers, we wish her our heartiest congratulations.  I think we're going to hear much more about Taylor's skating achievements in the coming years, and watch for her name on the International stage at the 2014 Winter Olympics.  Well done Taylor!

This month The Bright Light Café has another wonderful selection of new entertainment for you to savour.  There are 5 great new poems, a short story from the Land of the Long White Cloud, and three excellent new audio performances.

And here is the Creative Director of Bright Light Multimedia, the beautiful and talented Barbara Llewellyn, to introduce these new pieces.  Enjoy!


Time to smile and laugh and fly into inspiration with three brand new performances of Bright Light Café's talented writers.  

Today, Tomorrow, and Forget It  by Geoff Weilert

I really like to look at maps
And find places I’d like to go’ta
Like Morrow, Ohio; Knight, Indiana
And the small town Day, Minnesota.

Listen Now

I'm Not a Mad Mother  by Norma Jean Kawak

Husband at work, three children at school,
Baby splashing in bath, on the floor there’s a pool
Four year old is playing, please don’t make a mess.
I’m going out; still have to put on a dress.

Flight Of The Eagle  by Michael Lee Johnson

From the dawn, dusty skies 
comes the time when 
the eagle flies- 
without thought, 
without aid of wind,

"Letters to Michael"

Have you ever wondered 
what happens after we die?

Find out now in this insightful, inspiring and gently humorous adventure story of life, death, and what happens "over there".  

Prepare to laugh and cry and feel good all over as you come face to face with
 the power of love and 
profound and timeless
spiritual truths.



Michael Lee Johnson, from the United States, has a fascinating relationship with his own poetic nature, something all poets can relate to as they watch the moon or the change of seasons or while contemplating the complexity of their own thoughts.  If you've ever dabbled in the wonder of words yourself or have wondered just what makes a poet tick, you'll find the clues in each of Michael's latest three poems. 

A Poem Of The Night

a poem 
is a thought 
of flowers 
near frost, 
dangling stiff, 
bitten by 
the vampire of 
late fall,

Captured Shell Cranium

I capture my moss thoughts
inside this tight shell cranium.
Do poets expose their brains?
Do poets keep their thoughts
inside pressure steamed cooker?

Eclipse of Thought

Wing tipped
by the sun-
I see a different
version of the moon.
A movie not yet seen in darkness.
A story not yet told by prophets.

Tony Williams, from Australia, is a true romantic.  He has already captured our hearts with his short story about a newly married couple finding humour in "Too Sweet the Wine" and he now tugs at our memories of deeply missed and never forgotten loved ones in his powerful conversation with a lost love. 

Away From the Crowds

I could have lost myself
in the human comfort
of marketplace, café,
pub and shopping mall,
but on this quiet
and grassy bank,
by the flowing river,
I feel your touch as if
a ghost of you

Geoff Weilert, from the United States, is a marvellous muse, with laughter accompanying each of his flights of fancy.  His latest showcased poem is a delightful look at the English language with all its completely accepted absurdities.  Don't forget to also have a listen to his thoughts on road travel in America in "Today, Tomorrow And Forget It".

Seen and Not Heard  

Maybe, it’s just me
But doesn’t it sound quite absurd
To have letters in words
That are seen but not heard.

Short Stories

New Zealand is renowned as a beautiful and brave country as shown in the "Lord of the Rings" movies.  This beauty and courage is reflected in its inhabitants which is possibly why Rebekah Lyell, from the land of the long white cloud, always writes with these attributes shining through.  She will soon be entering into the tension of university exams, where a bit of extra luck along with all the study does an amazing amount of good, so please join us in wishing Rebekah great get-all-the-answers-right good fortune, before reading her heart-touching story.

The Day I Re-Met My Father  (271 words)

Sunlight streams rudely through a gap in my curtain. The smell of fresh cut grass and freesias too sweet for the morning. My eyes struggle open, finally alighting on the only photo of my Father and I.
She is in the kitchen. Her angelic voice twinkling up the stairs and twirling under my door. The static from the small radio is barely audible over her. She sounds happy.

The Second Trigger

If you've ever felt someone's words or actions make you instantly angry, upset or frightened, you have experienced your emotional triggers being switched on.

Do you want other people to keep
"pushing your buttons"?
Or do you want to 
take back the power that is rightfully yours?

When you want to be in control of your own life, it's time for The Second Trigger and the Master Switch that will override all your negative responses.


We wish you a joy-filled June.  May the sun shine happiness on your days, may you see beauty everywhere you look, and may you think big, wonderful thoughts while relishing all of life's small pleasures.

With our warmest regards,

Barbara Llewellyn & Rod Kirkham
