On example of the beauty of Santa Barbara.

This coming week is the 3rd anual celebration of International Day of Peace, inaugurated after the tragedy of September 11th. I wish we had more to celebrate three years later. Two wars later, I don't see we are any closer to a world at peace. To the contrary, far more people have been killed in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars than in the twin towers. But not only that - the way the US has waged the war and has neglected to establish communication and trust in the countries that support anti-US terrorist activities has really worsened the situation.

My church, the church of Scientology, supports real human rights activities. Peace will only occur when we demand and enforce such documents as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights be honored.

Why am I an artist? Here are some of the things other artists say about art.... Maybe this starts to explain it.

Only through art can we emerge from ourselves and know what another person sees. (Marcel Proust)

Art, being quite useless, except to the soul, is the highest of all human endeavors. (Bruce M. Rogers)

Art is the signature of civilizations. (Beverly Sills)

Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess? (Ludwig van Beethoven)

Art is the thrilling spark that beats death – that's all. (Brett Whiteley)
