Mamma-Mear... Just finished this book. Wow what a read. Fantastic and with so much detail. I had tears in my eyes at parts and all choked up. A long journey with a beautiful result." JOHN BELLINGER (LONDON MOTORBIKE POLICE)
I'm finally reading Claires book. I've read the various drafts and seen it evolve over the years Claire started this before Amelie was even thought of Before we changed Mearfest to a heavy Metal event. This has been an ongoing project for six years now. I have had every faith in her and this book. I have had every faith in all that we achieve together. We have created a legacy for Molly that is without doubt incredible. I have a feeling this book is going to be very successful. A week has gone by and it's in so many people's hands now. I have read just four chapters and I'm crying like I have never cried before Its reopened so many memories and thoughts. I really don't know how we survived what we went through, I really don't. Please support us with this Claire's story deserves to be read it really does. Not only amongst our closest of friends and family but to everyone. Brian Mear
THANK YOU FOR THE VERY POSITIVE RESPONSES TO MY BOOK. I do understand that this is a very emotive subject, I do not expect everyone to read this book in one go, or to comment about this or that part of it. It is a personal journey for us all, especially if you have lost a child, or if other parts of the book bring up triggers from your own pasts. I respect all of you who have taken the time in supporting me by ordering it, then read it. But, read it at your own pace, as there are many layers to it. I am here if you need any guidance or help. This is a universal time of uncertainty, we must share our stories, talk, discuss, then let it all go. I may not have grown up with a kind loving family, but I am certainly part of the greatest family on Earth, Mearfest.
Oh my! This book is beautiful so well written. I felt like I was in the room with you and watching it all unfold in front of me. Your words are amazing. Your book arrived so I thought I will just read a couple of pages and wow. I am hooked best book I have ever read in my life. I refrained from tears until you said goodbye to Molly, when you were in the bath, then they flowed. You are both more amazing than I originally thought. This book is inspirational Amazing and so personal. Very well written your words are from the heart Beautiful. Glennis Irish (Mearfest North merchandise manager)
This weekend has been BONKERS! Saturday night, I had a moment where my whole body had goosebumps all over it. Once you have read this book you will understand what that could mean. I looked on Facebook to see so many friends had settled in during national lockdown, to read a book, my book, some of you have commented that you have not read a book in many years. This, is such an honour that you have also enjoyed the journey. I have sent out 162 books by post. All these people reading my words, my story, travelling along the same epic troubled journey through my carefully chosen words.
Please send in your reviews and from my heart thank you everyone. My goal is to get people talking about their losses, their traumas, their pains, just release it into the world, write about it, talk about it, SING IT OUT LOUD, then let it go. You do not own that pain anymore. We all have your back. We are a team, a family, we are one.
I was born in darkness Lifeless cold and still But i was born to parents Who have an iron will No stone to mark my presence No flowers cut to fade No tree or bench or marker Or monument was made Yes I was born to silence Encased in grief and tears Born without the memories That mark the months and years But I was born with purpose In darkness I bring light I have a voice of thousands In metal shining bright In words i've gained mortality I am known throughout the land I'm the “Rocker Bye Baby“ Please hold my tiny hand.
A powerful story of hope and clear vision, truly a triumph! With a staunch connection to Spirit along with a brilliant sense of humour, her energy has the capacity to dislodge any bitter concretions, useless now and better for being washed away by tears of sorrow and of laughter. To whoever is reading these words, this book, ‘Rocker Bye Baby’, is a must-read. Enjoy the depth, richness, and intricacies of its layers. Celebrate this time, now, here together. One can only benefit from meeting Claire.’ Linnet Kerr (Retired RMT)
Linnet Kerr has been my Northern Star since 2007, when we met inside her little health food shop in Panajachel, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. Her spiritual haven became my daily go-to place for several weeks. Linnet is a gifted intuitive and healer. Her melodic voice projects organic sageness outwards, around the beating hearts of her loved ones, soaring up to the skies into the cosmos and beyond.
Earlier this year, living by the sea in Norfolk, I became stuck in a rut with getting this book to its final level of completion. Linnet swooped in to help. She got to work fast, becoming my soundboard during this logically challenging, yet spiritually awakening year of 2020, amidst the frequent uncertainty of my creativity, when my brain was in meltdown, and my body wanted to give up all hope through physical exhaustion. Humanity, as a collective, was trying their best to navigate through the many shitstorms that witnessed baffling illusions. Linnet kept me within the eye of reality, focused, calm, and centred throughout. We rode every personal and global challenge together when, finally, it was the right timeline to release this important story into the Universe. And so due to the sensitive subject matter, we aimed for its birth to be on Remembrance Day. 11.11.2020.
