AIN'T NO SUNSHINE

THIS IS RAY BROWN JR.

RAY BROWN JR.

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 – December 2008 Archive (5)

December 28th, 2008 - The Last Word. Maybe.

Never worry about tomorrow. Yet another New Orleans motto? No, and not another Esquizito Credo, either. Nay, nay. It's The Nazarene again. In a way, he's got a point. If you are really interested in manifesting your dream world, you're doing yourself a disservice by wasting consciousness on thoughts of: how bad could it get? I guess it's true – somethings will get worse. Some things will get better. Things have gotten better. Worse or better, everything begins with an idea.



So... hey… Continue

December 21st, 2008 - The Longest Night.

Love your enemies. This is the one that seemingly everybody has an issue with. Nevertheless, I'm one of those cats who has a tendency to stick his neck out. So I ask you: When was the last time you heard someone say: “God bless... and, May you turn the other cheek." But check it out... Jesus was hip to the natural law of attraction. Like seeks itself. If someone... anyone, at any given moment desires to bring into existence: hatred, greed, and/or thievery then, perhaps the most, or only… Continue

December 20th, 2008 – The Food Issue.

Off the top: I cook to eat. My life is not such that someone else is preparing my plate for me. The apparent reality that more and more people seem to really like my food is a surprise twist. I admit, I've developed a real zeal for the cuisine of my community. I take pride in representing a legacy that I've just flowed into whilst living my life: New Orleans Home Chef. I consider myself a “feather weight” compared to some people I know, and have learned about recently.



I've made… Continue

December 14th, 2008 ...jus' barely.

Hello and Happy Holidays to you and yours'. Now let's have it over with. Yes... Goodness and love is just... bursting all around me! So, I say: Joy To The World!... please? It's all a mystery to me but, in case you didn't know, the season of Christmas doesn't begin for another week+... and, I've already had enough christmas for a while. Nevertheless I'm thrilled and, cool. I survived the St. Augustine Church Altar Society Cake Sale! (I contributed a quite fine Bread Pudding - not unlike the one… Continue

December 7th, 2008

Love your neighbor as yourself. Well, when you get right down to it, isn't that a head-scratcher? Is that: Love your neighbor as you love yourself? Perhaps that's where all the trouble lies. As Freud pointed out in Civilization And It's Discontents, that many individuals don't love themselves very much. Then of course, who and/or how many can agree on what love, and loving, is? Is loving doing? As Ras Chemas Lamed “The Singing Chef” pointed out to me recently. Seems to me that our… Continue
