SPOTLIGHTED ARTISTS AND BUSINESSES:


TRIBUTE TO SAMMY NESTICO

THE BOB NOVAL ORCHESTRA

SHELLEY BURNS ~ ACCENTUATE

TRIBUTE TO JOHNNY MERCER

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!

Hey Marissa!! I just wanted to send you a line real quick and let you know that I'm still around. I just haven't been in here in forever and I know you prally thought I fell off the Earth....I'll try real hard to not do that again...You were right on your last post to me...I was on the road for a pretty long while last year and just needed to decompress once I got home. I hope this finds you in good spirit and health; and I hope you had a GREAT BIRTHDAY!! (I see the well wishers on here ;-). Anyway, you know that you're probably my favorite 'friend' on here, especially since we never met face to face...but that day is coming. All the love. We get up. Peace,

Fede
