Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

Butch was diagnosed the first week of March with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, which has no treatment other than a transplant.  After a lot of evaluation and testing, Butch was accepted as a candidate for a lung transplant at the Methodist Hospital at the Houston Medical Center.  Due to critical timing Butch and Linda took up temporary residency in Houston yesterday (July 18, 2014) awaiting a call from the transplant team.  The total time waiting for a transplant donor and the post transplant care could be upwards of twelve months.  Because of their loss of income and added living expenses, we are part of a group of concerned friends that are involved to raise funds to help them offset these additional expenses.

In addition to setting up this avenue of contribution through the AJS website, we will be coordinating some fundraising concerts and exploring other avenues to raise funds.

Please consider making a tax deductible contribution to help Butch and Linda and revisit the website for periodic updates on both the upcoming concerts and our progress.

Thank you.

Regards,

Austin Jazz Society
