What is your ethnicity? Actually, the word was mispronounced by Sgt. Genovese – of the 8th precinct, N.O.P.D. - when he asked me this question, as he ran a check on me in order to, apparently, see if he could bring me in for something else, or other than riding a bicycle up the wrong way of Royal Street. Sgt. Genovese and I love each other now; I'll be much better acquainted with Chartres Street for this. Back to the question; I'm still caught off-guard by the opportunity to answer this. There… Continue

Most of you will remember taking a class on the history of your state when you were in Junior High (middle school) or High School. Most of what we learned we forgot as soon as the test was over. I know I forgot, at least that fast.
Well, it dawned on me that if we had studied people that we saw in our neighborhood or who had more relevance to our daily lives we might have remembered our local history and been greatly enriched in the process.
I have noticed that of late...my transition has been from foggy to clear,from uncertain to determined,from tolerant to demanding.The ways of powerful people seem to have little room for shaky behavior and disguised actions.So as I am moved into my power..I notice that many seem uncomfortable with my simple right to focus,practice,escape,...even just protect myself!Wow...more prayer and much more practice!Guard your gifts carefully!!Fellow artist..and expect to be misunderstood..people pay to… Continue

WAYMAN LAWRENCE TISDALE's game was dominating. His music would reach in and touch your soul. But it was his smile that was irresistable to all who came near.
June 9th, 1964 - May 15th, 2009..........May he rest in peace.
One thing is for sure. Jelly Roll Morton will forever be attributed with the phrase: “the Spanish tinge.” He considered this quality essential to Jazz music. For a long time to come, the issue of Jazz bi-lingualism will keep the tongues flapping... and the fingers typing. The debate – if you will – regarding “Latin Jazz” will rage onward.
What Jelly was referring to is the syncopated rhythmic pattern known as the Clave. The Spanish word meaning 'key,' there are several widely… Continue

The term "archival" refers to the fact that they will last over 150 years without fading or loss of quality..a good investment. The works can be seen on my photo ad, my page, or by request… Continue
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."
