Greetings to all,

The dimension of time is something that we all experience. It puts us in a place. We can measure when that was or when that will be. We know time happens. It can be exampled when we play a video backwards; the diver moving out of the water backwards to be on the diving board, or the smoke going back into the fire, or the time lapse photography of the flower blooming and then wilting away, or that of a person growing older. Even with the most sophisticated space telescopes filming the great distant galaxies, by the time the image gets to us it is possibly eons old. Time has elapsed.

As a child the time between events seemed forever; birthdays, Christmas or school holidays coming around and then when you were in them they went so fast. As I have grown older the time between these events seems ever so short.

It is twelve months ago (13th February 2019) that we celebrated the life of Prince Leonard as he passed away from us here in this dimension and three years ago since (11th February 2017) since Prince Leonard’s abdication and my enthronement. Princess Shirley’s passing on the 7th July 2013. I am sure you all have significant dates to remember people and events that have helped to shape your life.

I would like us all to pause for a moment here and recall those people and events, filled with love, joy and happiness. Hopefully the sad times have been replaced with happier memories. The time comes around quickly so please enjoy the moment and try to enjoy the moment that you are in, taking a look behind or into the future to justify where you are at - now.

I give lots of love, respect and gratitude to Princess Shirley and Prince Leonard, two very fabulous and wonderful people that have given much to many and gave me such a privileged life. Thank you.

May you also have gratitude for people and events in your life.

My Best Wishes
