Erenestine Anderson's Home Saved

GOOD NEWS...The report from Seattle is that due to the love shown and money donated to the BofA for the Ernestine Anderson Fund. Her house is saved and there is enough money to make the payments for one year. She also has been getting some work from folk on the West Coast.

Welcome...to JazzTrenzz

I invite all my music friends to join in and offer their thoughts and perceptions about anything that is on the table.

I am always looking for new ideas and concepts. I also look to learn each minute of every day. So please... pass on anything. The only time one looks a bit left of center is when they do not choose to offer an opinion.

Ciao & Peace

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!
