It’s a little after 1am in the morning and I just got off the phone, (surprised), with our moderator, Jaijai Jackson. She informed me of the group and your love and I’m spechless. I’ve kept my situation to myself, as she knows so well, at times not even answering my phone even when I’m able. I’m filled with a ton of emotions as I read your posts and reflect on our conversation. I thank each of you for your up building comments.
You’re in my prayers, I can’t thank you enough for your encouragement.
Jaijai your heart is truly royal, you're a Queen!!!
God bless you and your entire family Brother Dixon. This beautiful forum is a place where the most creative/ gifted people come to gather, inspire, support, share and, what a wonderful way to "share" especially when life throws a curve ball our way. It is with sincerity and humility that I lift you and, everyone going through life's trials in prayer...Just seeing you respond to this message is indeed a beautiful sign of things to come Chazz. I haven't been here in a minute but, glad I stopped by to see what the wonderful Jaijai Jackson was up to. Keep the faith and, continue to believe in the blessings and power of God's healing and love! Peace & we're pulling for you...Noelle:)
Chazz ... you do what you need to do in order to nuture yourself! Yours is not a short road coming and it will be one of tests and discovery, frustrations and celebrations, anger and supreme joy. Hmmmm .. not unlike like in general!!! But you're on the road none-the-less and you are a survivor so answer the phone when you feel like and don't when you don't, take as many opportunites to smile as needed but also let the tears come as well. Trust your spirit .. it wants to see you go the distance and will not let you down!
Took me two years to relearn how to walk and talk again after my accident. I'm still working on the thinking side of things! :-)
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."
