There’s been a change in me

A kind of moving on

Though what I used to be

I still depend on

For now I realize

That good can come from bad

That may not make me wise

But oh it makes me glad

I never thought I’d leave behind

My childhood dreams

But I don’t mind

For now I love the world I see

No change of heart a change in me

For in my dark despair

I slowly understood

My perfect world out there

Had disappeared for good

But in its place I feel

A truer life begin

I’m where and who I want to be

No change of heart

A change in me


A Change In Me is a solo song from the Broadway musical Beauty and the Beast, written especially for Tony Braxton’s debut performance in 1998 by Tim Rice and Alan Menken.

Kaizen is a Japanese word meaning change for good or continual improvement, and is also Ken’s new favorite word.

Hi. Welcome to Hong Kong… according to Ken. Me! I’m a Texas guy that now lives in Hong Kong. I left my life as I knew it, to start a new life. One filled with unfamiliar sites, languages, foods, smells, culture and people. This “leap of faith” is still leaping, but I’m beginning to see the ground beneath me. If you ever wondered what it would be like to pack your bags, say good bye to everyone you know, jump on a plane to another world- then get ready. Here’s a look at life in Hong Kong… according to Ken.
