Time for a New Beginning

"The true measure of a man is not how he behaves in moments of comfort and convenience but how he stands at times of controversy and challenges"~Martin Luther King, JrIt goes without saying that this year has been a tough one for many of us; Musique Noire is no exception. Within the group we've had marriages, welcomed babies, lost loved ones dear to us and worked through financial difficulties.But one thing has stayed constant. . .the support we've received from you. We can't thank you enough…See More

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!
