Jody...It is a pleasure to find out who you are! I've seen you over the years and now I know! You are a very radiant individual. Your inner beauty comes through externally. I am most impressed with your advice to persist, persevere, and have Faith to make it in entertainment. I especially related to how we had to do everything ourselves in the earlier years...this breeds a holistic artist. Honestly, this is one the problems in higher education today...giving the young people everything and not making them figure it out for themselves! It was a pleasure getting to know you...looks like you are still extremely busy...stay Happy. Check me out when time permits.
Good to connect via the network. You certainly have accomplished many things. Great that you are reconnecting to your singing! I was interested to read of your activity's with young film makers and your other philanthropic works.
Keep dancing with the music:)
Jody...well done ! The depth and breadth of your career is a testament to your persistance and quality as a professional...Welcome to TJN, may you have continued sucesses, and find a wealth of other talents to share your artistry with and keep the creative process growing...my best to you ...always b
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."
