Dancing the Dream

His book of 46 pieces of poems and reflections dedicated to his mother, Katherine, has a foreword by Elizabeth Taylor. In his inspirational and passionate volume of unparalleled humanity, he writes about children, animals and the environment. Michael describes the book as “just a verbal expression of what I usually express through my music and my dance” which take us deep into his heart and soul.

“Dancing the Dream” is one man’s hauntingly beautiful, provocatively personal view of the world around us, and the universe within each of us. Whether his prose and poetry focused on creativity, the people that surrounded him, or the plight of the noble elephant, his observations and concerns all illustrated his belief that trust, love and faith are the foundation stones for a life well lived. Containing Michael’s personal writings and over one hundred glorious photographs, drawings, and paintings from his own collection.

How I make music

People ask me how I make music.
I tell them I just step into it.
It’s like stepping into a river and joining the flow.
Every moment in the river has its song.
So I stay in the moment and listen.

What I hear is never the same.
A walk through the woods brings a light, crackling song:
Leaves rustle in the wind, birds chatter and squirrels scold, twigs crunch underfoot,
and the beat of my heart holds it all together.
When you join the flow, the music is inside and outside, and both are the same.
As long as I can listen to the moment, I’ll always have music.

~Michael Jackson
