hi... i stopped by because i have lived in amsterdam and
went to Utrecht university for a few month (i had to
come back to japan so, i had to leave in the middle of the
course) but i wanted to say hello!!
Thank you for the add. I am sorry I have not taken time until now to send you a thank you. I went to your website and viewed some of your work and it is wonderfully inventive as well as unique. What part of the world do you call home? I look forward to you posting some of your work on TJN.
Hi Evette, I will only be in Austin for a day. Flying in on Sunday. Will ge to have a look at the cemetery, on Monday I will do so again and take the pictures I need (Clean up the plate if neccessary - make it as pretty as possible) and be on my way to LA later that day.
On March 30th I will be back in New York for another week. Leaving for Amsterdam on Monday, April 7th. It is a pity that I don't have more time. But still another great trip for me!!
Good to hear back from you & I know you are excited to present the book.
My sister & I will be in Austin, TX on March 30th as dad is being inducted into the new Long Cultural Center at their inaugural unveiling of their Music Memorial. Will you still be in town on this date, let me know I could see if I can secure another invitation.
Jaap it's so great to have you here, I hope you'll enjoy being involved in this community. It was great to have a chance to see you at The Ahoy Center and the North Sea Festival performance of McCoy Tyner and Gary Bartz was great, wasn't it! I look forward to coming back to The Netherlands. And the family is excited that Herbie won the Best Album Grammy.
Best Regards, Evette

Welcome to THE JAZZ NETWORK WORLDWIDE "A GREAT PLACE TO HANG"
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."
