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!

Hi Henry, We met sometime around '77 or '78 at the Sheraton in Columbus, Ohio. I believe you were on the road with Ramsey Lewis or someone. You sat in with our group, (the band leaders name was Carl Sally, a tenor player) and later showed me a bunch of Wes stuff in the room. I only remembered part of it because I was a bit drunk that night and not really with it, to my embarrasment. If it's any consolation, that night led me to quit drinking at work. Anyway, I'm still working and trying to learn, living in Asia for the last 25 years (Taiwan and Singapore). If you're curious you could check my webiste; ricksmithguitar.com I just wanted to thank you for the time and encouragement you gave me all those years ago. Sometimes the effects of kindness or generousity go far beyond the moment! Thanks, Henry
