BACK TO THE MUSIC AND THE JAZZ

Posted on December 4, 2018 at 5:42pm 0 Comments

As I reflect on the events of this year I'm soooo grateful to my Creator for giving me the patience and skill to care for my God Mother on her farm in Louisiana.... Dementia is taking the brain disease , it jumbles the thought processes and you lose bits of yourself till you wither away.... For eleven months I have cared , cooked, colored the hair, cleaned clothes  ......and walked, sat,  and slept beside this woman I came to know 25 years ago ... Such a beautiful vivacious and spirited…

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!
