Celebrate Crystal's Birthday!

Penny for your thoughts

It's Crystal Keith's birthday,*
and all she wants is funding for her original play!

From experimental theatre to classic rock to children's music education, my amazing wife now levels up her playwriting career by self-producing her first standalone play, coming to the Hollywood Fringe in June!

Already more than halfway to her goal of $7000, we'd be so grateful for any amount of support you can give to make her dream come true for this time-travelling investigation of the victims of Jack the Ripper.

Whether you can donate or not, please stop by the Broadwater Plunge tomorrow 4/13 for Happy Hour birthday drinks starting at 5:30!

Life is painful. It has thorns, like the stem of a rose. Culture and art are the roses that bloom on the stem. . . . The flower is yourself, your humanity. Art is the liberation of the humanity inside yourself.  - Daisaku Ikeda

June's shaping up to be a big month.

I'm rejoining Overtone Industries as they present excerpts from Songs and Dances of Imaginary Lands in Opera Conference 2024!  And...

Ripper-ologists!  Stay tuned for tickets and funding opportunities for this fresh, time-travelling investigation of the original true crime.
I'm so grateful to my fellow parents at Castelar for launching the Castelar Dragons Foundation!  The CDF exists to support music education and other special programs for the second oldest school in LAUSD, with an annual fundraising goal of $125,000.  A donation of any size, at any time, helps ensure the continuity of the comprehensive program of music education provided by ETM-LA.  Please donate today!

While celebrating the unique characteristics of different peoples and cultures, we must create solidarity on the level of our common humanity, our common life. Without such solidarity, there will be no future for the human race. Diversity should not beget conflict in the world, but richness.  - Daisaku Ikeda

"Goodness" can be defined as that which moves us in the direction of harmonious coexistence, empathy and solidarity with others. The nature of evil, on the other hand, is to divide: people from people, humanity from the rest of nature.  - Daisaku Ikeda
