Better Humans, Better Leaders, Better Community
Our world is a direct reflection of our own making.
We are the creators of our story, our life, and
the world we know. The human tendency is to gravitate
toward that which offers the least resistance. It
is even a law of physics. In life however, this
is not a course chosen and charted, but instead,
it is a course meandering and undefined, requiring
little effort and offering little reward. We are
entertained with all manner of diversions, with
the promise that the next diversion will finally
produce euphoria and bliss, only to then repeat
To escape this empty paradigm is not impossible.
It does require effort. And that effort is to become
aware. To become aware of our inner thoughts and
decision-making process as we are in the midst of
those very thoughts, before we act, before we submit,
is truly an awakening. It sounds easy enough, but
requires great effort and re-training of the way
we fall through our lives. This re-training of our
inner life to take back control of our actions and
thoughts, and to develop a greater sense of being
alive, in the life of our choosing, and creating
value in our lives, is the goal and substance of
the “Essential Creative Core”.
I have established the entity of TLK and TRIBE Fine
Art to offer a model for creative, problem solving,
efforts with a focus on internal discovery and the
value of all life. TRIBE is my effort to create an
environment, in a physical location as well as reaching
out to the online community, for round-table dialog
and establish an initiation point to launch movements,
small and large, both personal and in groups. The
goal is to develop the essential creative core.
Aristotle said that good government starts in the
home, with individuals, then transfers to community,
city, county, state, and ultimately to country.
This is my model. It will require word of mouth,
mailings, posters, art exhibitions, animations,
books, theater, dance, videos, film, workshops,
teaching, and more.
Art is the great ally for our own personal development
and realizations, to create media of influence and
education based on the preciousness of life and
an awakened community. We use information in the
form of entertainment, education, mass media, public
service, and any other venue we can exploit to correct
the consciousness’s path. Alone, and separated,
we cannot hope to motivate the huge changes necessary
to heal the world, the country, our communities,
and even our neighbors and family. Only together
can we effect change. But certainly it begins with
each one of us individually. You. Me.
I certainly do not have all the answers, but I am
just as certain the solutions come from extended
dialog and efforts. I firmly believe that as we
become more mindful and aware of our own decision
making based on our own investigation and internal
debates, we will become more secure in our own identity,
our own dignity, and we will also know the value
of that effort. That value will also make us better
listeners, better communicators, and develop understanding.
I see us as blades of grass. To connect and network
our efforts will create a fertile ground for the
needed future leaders to root, and to grow strong.
This is a long term solution that is vital to our
I need your help. We need a place to meet. I call
it, THE BOX, an alternative space. Not simply a gallery or retail outlet, but an incubator of ideas as well.
Do you know someone with a building, a 2000 square foot box or larger space that could
be donated to this cause? Can you contribute money

I am chomping at the bit to get this space to fruition. If you
are an artist, you will have a forum to exhibit
your work and be challenged to push your creativity
to higher levels. If you are a collector, you will
have a space to attend monthly shows of real, provocative
art with ideas and thoughts abounding. If you are
a writer, poet, musician, or a concerned individual
with ideas to contribute, THIS, THE BOX, is your
TRIBE Fine Art Space, THE BOX, looks to provide:
I am an artist with a very diverse background of
skills that I will bring to all aspects of our endeavor.

teacher, film-maker, and Radio personality. I have
travelled all over North America and lived in many
states and provinces. I am a videographer and attended
UCLA film and television school. I have worked in
theatre both on stage and back stage. I have written
many books and published them. I have run an art
gallery and have been a member and treasurer of
a large artist co-op in Southern California. I have
worked for DOD contractors and for charitable organizations.
