Napranum Aboriginal Community (Queensland, Australia)

napooficialsiteNapranum (meaning meeting place of the people) was the site of Weipa Presbyterian Mission from 1932 to 1965. Before 1932, the original Weipa Mission was situated near Spring Creek on the upper northern reaches of the Embley River. On 1 February 1966, the church handed over control to the Queensland Government and the mission became known as Weipa South settlement. During the late 1960s the name Napranum was increasingly used by the community.

At least twelve traditional owner groups occupied the surrounding lands, however there are families living at Napranum today whose links extend to Mapoon and Weipa from the missionary period.

Lesli Moore Dahlke

lesliMD1UONELesli Moore Dahlke is a Southern Californian native. Being a native is a rarity for most “Californians,” who frequently come from other places in the country. But, proudly, she was born and raised in the bright beautiful Golden State. Lesli describes herself as a lucky child of the 50’s greatly loved by her parents. It was a time of innocence, a time when life was as gentle as a warm breeze. It was a time of growing up during the halcyon days. She was raised in the San Fernando Valley, one of the original vast booming post-World War II suburbs of Los Angeles. Lesli grew up in the shadows of tinsel-town’s glamour, its glitter and the glory days of Hollywood. Her father, Del Moore, was a noted and successful television and movie actor. She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from California State University, Northridge. Her degree was as a practitioner of Television and Film Production. Lesli’s secondary emphasis was on the written word of journalism. As her career began, she pursued a successful career in Television Media Production. Her credits include commercial film production, and numerous areas of television production, including producing live sports programming. Lesli was the Supervising Associate Producer for the award-winning documentary, “The Eisenhower Years,” for The Discovery Channel, as well as for PBS Network programming. She also supervised the production of PBS Telecourses, the front-runner to today’s on-line universities. Lesli headed the production staff that produced the first cable series for the Playboy Channel and various other ventures. She was a long time writer to the former Salem-News.com on-line newspaper as an Environmental Contributor. Lesli now is a contributing writer for The City of Hope and is completing her second book, Every Day Is a Gift. Although her industry experiences were vast, challenging, and never routine, the most personal challenging experiences were yet to come.

The Best Is Yet To Come!

lmdpbbook-1

Her life and story is explored and shared in the profound book The Best Is Yet To Come (published 2012) “I never miss a moment of this beautiful life.

David William Gibbons

David William Gibbons is a transitional media strategist (Culture, Social, Human Performance and Democracy) and best known for the creation of deep ethereal dialogue, broadcast widely across the transitory and fast evolving technologies existing at the beginning of the 21st Century. His work in the humanities began at a fundamental level with the 14 days journeys across America and the United Kingdom in 2004 and 2005. During this period he found an emerging and transformational personal gift of human connection, in concert with the creation of profound photography and film. Later, at a revolutionary changing point in his life, an understanding developed in pairing historical context with human connection dynamics. This was defined and developed during 2009, through the personal exploration and extensive research of deep discussion and narrative in audio and video mediums. This period also marked a time of introspection and intense hardships through which he traveled, until such time as the platform upon which his material resides found its mark. The programming and rich dialogue have since developed and advanced to where an extensive and powerful legacy now exists. Today, these dialogues continue to expand based upon the transformation of a challenged planet. Distinguished individuals and groups from all over the world have participated in deep conversations, the latter of which are charted through international panels on the well respected Crossing over the Bridge series. The most notable of these include the late Dr. Brian O’Leary Astronaut and Author, with whom he recorded over 28 hours of dialogue and engaged in hundred’s of hours of personal conversations outside of the regular broadcasting schedule. A close friendship and mutual respect developed between the two individuals heavily reflected and resonating in the work that they created together. Dr. Brian O’Leary passed in July 2011. It is considered in many circles, that the material created between the two individuals represents the greatest body of conversations currently known to be in existence during Dr. O’Leary’s life. His work continues with an underscore of quiet discernment, deliberating upon wide spread issues of which free energy and evolving conscious human behavior define the backbone of a core and determined mission. Through an open and ever deepening form of dialogue, the views of people and realities continue to build upon his long believed view that this current time reflects this “the generation of all generations.”

Patrick J. O’Brien Vietnam Veteran, Investigative Journalist and American Patriot (b. October 6, 1947 – d. October 15, 2013)

pattribute† O’Brien, Patrick J. Veteran Investigative Journalist (b. October 6, 1947 – d. October 15, 2013) In this work and over many years I have been truly honored to work with the finest people in the world. Today in one of the saddest moment’s of my life, I was informed unexpectedly of the passing of my greatest of friends Patrick J. O’Brien. His devoted wife Beverly expressed quietly through great courage the final hours of this wonderful man’s life. Patrick and Beverly walked with me through intense times during the early years of this broadcasting. For three and a half years there has rarely been a day that passed without talking to my friend. Only this year have our conversations been less frequent, during which ongoing and continuing health challenges follow critical open-heart surgery. In fact we laughed together very recently betting on who would leave first. In so many ways I wish I had taken that title. The loss of this man has over recent hours left me almost incapacitated with grief. However, this  will subside as he would wish the broadcasts to continue unabated. They shall indeed.

Patrick proudly served his country as have so many other brave men and women. However, as a Vietnam veteran he suffered much of his life with scars both psychologically and physically. Following service in the armed forces he worked in the advertising industry and also became an experienced investigative journalist. As an entrepreneur he created successful enterprises. He also witnessed them fall but during many recollections, remained always pragmatic and thankful for the experiences.

Among the many shared achievements was our work on Deepwater during 2010 and 2011. This followed the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. His endless compassion for those directly affected and involved at any level, is reflected through endless hours of broadcast programs created during that period. Among those who featured in a long lineup of appearances, were ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau, Astronaut, Scientist and Author Dr. Brian O’Leary and Scott Porter, Diver, Marine Biologist.

Patrick and his beloved wife Beverly shall forever be ingrained in my soul for their friendship, love and dedication. To have known him and always have him by my side is an honor and privilege.

Patrick J. O’Brien Vietnam Veteran, Investigative Journalist and American Patriot (b. October 6, 1947 – d. October 15, 2013) Commemorative extended program as tribute to this great man’s life November 12, 2013.

“I shall always continue and work tirelessly in this transitional media work and you shall in every moment and until my last breath be by my side. For Beverly my love will continue in your absence. I  love you.”

The-Best-Is-Yet-To-Come-Book-3D-213x300The Best is yet to Come!

The best is yet to come is an enjoyable adventure of my life, from birth to the current day. It is filled with surprising laughter, and raw honesty, as well as unimaginable struggles and challenges along the way. As an 18-year-old girl, I was exposed to the carcinogenic chemical, Agent Orange, during the Vietnam War. Traveling with the USO under the auspices of the US Army, my life was unknowingly altered for life. Devastatingly, years later, I developed three life-taking cancers from that Christmas trip of 1970. My story is always encouraging with the enormity of spirit and determination. I fight the monolithic bureaucracy of the United States while always sharing lightheartedness. To me, life is a glorious kaleidoscope. It is a continually changing pattern of shapes and colors. Experiences build the foundation of who I am. During my lifetime, the mountain of memories I have gathered have supported the structure of my life. Life is like an onion.  It is a big beautiful, purple, sweet onion with layer upon layer of complexity. Peel away one layer and there is something beautiful on that level. Keep peeling. The deeper you go, the more you have a bundle of sweet layers, each with its distinctive shape and personality! There is so much more than what is obvious on the surface.

I have had three cancers. Two of my cancers are currently active. They are along for the ride with me daily, and are sharing this adventure we call life. But, they are only part of my life and its story. Cancer has taught me and given me an immediacy of life. Cancer has become a gift of understanding and enjoying life’s amazing moments. However, cancer is only one part of me.  It is a single event that shapes and colors my life. It is a chapter within a bigger story. But, it is NOT the whole story. I am still the person I was before cancer came to me. My heart is always filled with how great life is. I am always grateful to be me. Please come along with me on this unusual life’s story. Enjoy the beauty and challenges of all that life can be.
