“Eat the rich!”

 

Welcome back Dear Reader; and Happy August to you. While I have long maintained that happiness (as in: “the pursuit of...”) is highly overrated, I do sincerely hope that you are now and have been playing it cool... all the way; and I submit this small buffet of thought.

 

A quarter of a century ago, the phrase, “eat the rich” first entered my consciousness by way of a song which was written and recorded by one of America's truest originals.…

September 11, 2010 – Almost A Decade.

I talk too much.



[Listen to an air-check from a radio show broadcast live in New Orleans, 10:00 p.m.-Midnight, Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Try clicking here... It's also at the top of the Playlist on my Main Page.]



I admit it; and of course many have said that generally, in quality and quantity, we talk… Continue

August 29, 2010 – 5 Years Old!

What can I say?



Well... first, I am grateful to be here in New Orleans. There are those – at least one learned man I know – who predicted that we wouldn't make it this far. He was wrong; ah yes... he was wrong.



What's next? Dear Reader, let's dance...!

RIP BUNNY, THANK YOU FOR A LIFE OF GREAT MUSIC

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN...

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!
