There is a Chinese proverb that says: "If there is light in the soul, there is beauty in the person; If there is beauty in the person, there will be harmony in the home; If there is harmony in the home, there is peace in the heart."

May your life be filled with beauty; may your heart be filled with peace and together we will rise and be respectful for the identity and dignity of all creation. And together we will strive toward a world free of fear and hatred. Confucius said it so poignantly, "Our greatest glory is not in never failing but in rising every time we fail."


Living History (formerly Storyliving) ~ in 1991, Josh teamed up with the founder of Story Living, Randi Douglas. Living History is an interactive educational outreach program. The purpose is to teach history and social studies using kinesthetic, multiple intelligence activities and as Josh says, "It is where you become the people you are learning about and then when you become emotionally involved, you never forget." And all this happens in the classroom with music, imagination and role-playing. Sessions are held in schools from third grade and up, universities, churches, temples, community centers and at seminars."I hear and I forget ~ I see and I remember ~ I do and I understand" Contact for information/booking.

Josh and his friend, award-winning humorist, Mike Ball, took a balloon ride. They just happened to have a guitar with them. . .
