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!

Esquizito's Blog – September 2009 Archive (5)

September 29th, 2009

“A jazz musician who has taken the spotlight on the world.”



Dear Reader, we return to a “very interesting subject” which Mr. Barker brought to the Xavier students of a generation ago. The case of Hamaas Khaalis, a Bebop drummer turned “revolutionst,” and the very true story of the Hanafi Siege which took place in Washington D.C. in 1977. I myself was 13 years old when the three-day stand-off occurred, and was unaware of it until I encountered Danny's cassette archives. I'll admit,… Continue

September 22nd, 2009

Dear Reader, may we begin with a mindfulness of Mr. Danny Barker.

The back door is open and the windows are raised; it's Tuesday, March 15th, 1977 – I would guess that it's a beautiful day over the Xavier University campus. Nevertheless, it is time to let the bad air out. It is apparent that Mr. Barker is... "playing it cool." It is very interesting to hear how he carefully approaches… Continue

September 15th, 2009

Cause and effect may be a natural law; although I will admit before you, Dear Reader: It is often an elusive mystery to me. Nevertheless, I keep thinking; (it aint illegal, yet.) As New Orleans' September song echos transitions of climate and weather, we can now gaze upon the beginning of the end of Summer 2009. With the 4th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the 8th anniversary of the attacks on the the World Trade Center and Pentagon now also history, I will conduct these postings into… Continue

September 8th, 2009

Sunday is a highly significant day of the week in New Orleans' living. Throughout each calendar year there is no season as potent in its swagger than that of the New Orleans Labor Day week-end. It has been told of, and reported but... truthfully, you must experience it.



Some people say that the Southern Decadence Parade, and the Black Men of Labor Parade have met each other... or at least, encountered each other... in passing on North Rampart Street – in between the Vieux Carre and… Continue

September 1st, 2009

There is an aspect of New Orleans life which is not often spoken of: The New Orleans people are a society “with a great tolerance.”



Tolerance.wav



I suppose that I am chastened, and humbled to agree. We still have it today – almost two generations down the road from Mr. Barker's days. This point of allowance that African-Americans seem to arrive at, in each generation (Danny and I prefer,… Continue
