Hey Greg, loooong time - no see :) Looking at your slide show above brings back much treasured memories. Reggie and I are currently featured on TJNW...and I have just launched my new interactive website/music network. Please take a look and a listen @
It was cool doing the hits in Berlin...looking forward to the next hit in New York unless you get back over here sooner...which would be great. Oh yeah, got the bus back without using anymore trolley tracks. Peace
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."
