Nan Witcomb on her powerful words of wisdom, impact and love

When the going gets tough, what do you do to stay calm and focused?

For me it’s always been getting lost in music or carefully crafted words, and there have been none better than The Thoughts of Nanushka.

Nan Witcomb’s words have been repeated countless times all over the world over the last 50 years, to celebrate and commemorate important life events, including ‘To Mourn Too Long for Those We Love’ at the funeral of Michael Hutchence of INXS.

Her poem ‘Beautiful Unlined Faces’ was also published in Dr Charmaine Saunders’ book, Teenagers and Stress, just to name a few. Her eighteen volumes of the Thoughts of Nanushka published between 1971 and 1998, have sold over 300,000 copies.

Her friends say she is really about seventeen different people in one!
Her heart’s poetic pulse has captured generations of lifelong followers, and you will join them after taking the time to turn her pages.

There are only a very small handful of The Thoughts of Nanushka volumes left in existence so please email [email protected] if you would like to be one of the last to own her enduring words as they are destined to become prized collector’s items for generations to come.

As Nan is famous for saying:

Beyond the ugliness in this world, is the incredible beauty of love & friendship – that is where I live.

And her precious words will help us all live there with her forever.

Thank you Nan for taking the time to share your story, and Freedom Fighters, please enjoy the evergreen Nan Witcomb.
