Peace, Passion, The Word & The Wisdom - Family, I'm looking to bridge gaps & promote Poetic Expression. We are kindred spirits - let's build together - create and promote venues for Spoken Word Expression. I'm in DC, but my vision is global - I have pen and pad and I will travel - I'm seeking gigs, seminars, workshops, and more - Let's do The Write Thing!!

"Today"

The saddest thing that there has ever been
Is a gathering of old and bitter men
Telling tales of way back when
Remembering all of the things that they never did
To their graves they all will go
Wondering, regretting, but never to know
The word unspoken, the deed not done
Could very well have been the one
To place your star up in the sky
Something cowards dare not try
Why do you say; Tomorrow?
It could very well be too late
For your failed tomorrow
Might have been Today so great

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!
