I couldn't vouch for my sanity without jazz in my life. Jazz wakes up my brain & makes me feel right. It's my clue to the way I want to live my life.

Thank you, jazz artists.

A modest proposal: Where are the women?

A modest proposal: “Where are the women?”

Oct. 24, 2009

Dear friends,

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called for a major international effort to improve the life of women and girls everywhere, focusing on education, health, economic opportunity, the elimination of sexual violence, and giving women and girls a voice.

All are, after all, of & from our beautiful earth. I hope you'll enjoy my little contribution to this site's beauty, & I wish you all a hot, cool summer!

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!
