President's Blog: Love is an Incredible Thing

Mark-Presidents-Blog-1.jpgLove is an incredible thing. It encourages you and gives you faith; it lights up your life and enables you to endure and achieve. It comes in many different shapes and sizes, and sometimes when you least expect it.

I jumped in my first tour bus when I was 19 years old, and I soon fell in love. I discovered a space that was exquisite, an opportunity to be with youngsters and share with them the excitement that is life on the road. Since then, I have had the privilege of experiencing almost three decades of friendship and trust from all of the teachers who have travelled with my business.

I work for students, teachers, administrators, school boards and communities at large day in and day out. I carry my phone with me 24/7 so that when you are on the road with us you will feel the comfort and confidence that comes with the immense love that I have for my work.

It is a privilege to be engaged and involved with you and to help you to encourage your children, to have a look at the world and to say “the world is a great place and I want to be in it and I want to be involved. I want to participate in every day to the best of my abilities”.

In my role with Jumpstreet Tours; in my role as a life partner, a father, a friend… in my role as a mentor, I have continued and will continue to share our mutual love for exploring.

So today, I want to share with you an extraordinary performance recorded in 1975: The Köln Concert by Keith Jarrett.
