The Arch of the Career In Music; Keep On Sliding!

There is so much before, between and beyond a show like "American Idol." I admit, it is entertaining, but people seem to accept at face value that if one is really talented, and gifted, he or she will get in!



I know personally, three specific cases, where an extremely talented individual did not even make it to first call backs. Thus, the whole thing felt, to them, like that was the end, at least until they collected their broken bits and put their self esteem back… 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."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
