    Thanks, Peter.

    Not quite sure what your point is, unless you're simply saying that the rich have too much money and should help others who are poor.

    Which I agree with, but what is unique about picture 5 and 7? Same old same old. It's not right, but it's hardly new either.

    So you see, I'm not quite sure what your point is?

    Good point, Pete. Your compassionate heart just went surfing the net and this is what you came back with.

    Something that an artist might use in their work, no?

    Doug's question is legitimate: "So?"

    Well, the "A" answer is that my art is hooked into who I am and how I respond to my world. You can say, "Here, look at my paintings where I deal with all that stuff. You may see what I am getting at in my art." You did it in your songs. Why not in your paintings?

    While links to what others are doing has a certain limited value, it's somebody else's stuff. And thus, I can shuffle it off as just another anonymous image of suffering and disharmony.

    You're an artist, Bro. How effective is your voice? And you know I respect your voice immensely. But this exchange brings up something that could slingshot you ahead as an artist, if that's what you want to say to the world.

    What do you want to focus on thematically? Does anybody get it? Does anybody care? Handing somebody a newspaper with a "Well?" doesn't quite offer anyone the deeper insight that is yours. Take them farther than they can go on their own.

    Your songs: Daylight Robbery, Missing Child, War!, Open Letter (to Phillip Morris)?????

    Dude, You've got the heart. You've got the voice. You've got the Art. You've got the Rage. You can answer that question.

    The world seems unbalanced when populations all over the world are starving to death and yet others spend money on pomp. And this is the heritage of a history of colonialism expansionism and oppression. And just possibly a well established system of financial advantage. No one should be starving to death like that child. Agreed.
