  1. that is why I love you so much! you are doing so many amazing things!! I like knowing that you are out there, and we are exploring, and awakening!!!! 😉

    oh and so glad you are on twitter!!! it is so fun!

  2. so true fox!

    and that is exactly what I want to see happen! imagine the possibilities, imagine what would be the next step! I’m willing, able, and doing, to see what that next step is!

  3. Yes Georgette,

    Art should indeed be for everybody, that’s why I will focus even more on publishing the best artists and their work, here on this channel!

    But remember what Glenn Gould said:
    “In the best of all possible worlds, art would be unnecessary; the audience would be the artist and their life would be the art.”

    Pura Vida!

  4. thank goodness for art! isn’t it so wonderful in this day and age how much art we have access too.

    why should art be only viewable by a small number of people? so great the masses have more and more access to magical creative minds.

    beautiful video, beautiful work and great transitions, I was completely mesmerized
