Homecoming Revolution Christmas evening

I was very fortunate to be invited to the Homecoming Revolution year end Christmas party, held this evening in Rosebank, Johannesburg.

It was not only an opportunity to catch up with old friends and acquaintances that I first met in London in 2007 at the 2nd London Event last October, but also a very fulfilling experience spending time with other South Africans who have retuirned from prolonged periods spent overseas.

Homecoming Revolution (HCR) managed to secure Ben Zander as a guest speaker, and he spoke of the ideals, energy and passion that South Africans exhibit on a daily basis and in the most routine of circumstances, and how he has enjoyed experiencing South Africa on each of his previous 8 visits to the country. He was truly inspiring, energising "Homecomers" as we mostly were, and giving a very positive message from the point of view of an outsider (an American citizen) It was also the first opportunity I have ever had to sing a Christmas Carol, with an international conductor at the piano!

It was a very memorable event, reminding me once more of the invredible things that await the returning South African. There are many negative messages being distributed around the world with regard South Africa and the "situation" here.

But there is no other place on earth just now that affords one to make a very real difference.

I am very appreciative to the HCR team for the invite, and look forward to working with them again next year.
