S&M was and is a joke. Torture meaning you know the answers and we do not! Again just a joke! Simple fun is all it was. I can tell you after many years of performing before live audiences with my music and many times showing my paintings and sculptures before the public, you, meaning anyone, must have a thick skin. It is so easy to get all caught up in it! That is why I please one person and one person only….myself! Then I don’t have to worry about it.

To be honest with you. I have been on WordPress for just about one month. Please believe me when I say I have found the creative personage the most fragile of any public art form. That surprises me and I am still considering the reasons as to why that is? I have been a public artist my entire adult life and it really is shocking. Mostly because it is public! The public is vast and wide with every different opinion possible. So ultimately it is your own that actually counts. I hope!

Again, it was just joking around. I know you are not in whips and chains…probably! Uh Oh here I go again…

Sorry. Just blow it off. It was not intended to insult. You’ll be fine and just keep doing a good job. That’s what I really think or I would not have wasted a second with any words for you….Okay? Okay, claudy

Nope! Not the Indian but maybe the second language. Also, I forgot to mention I do not know how to make those little smiley faces on the screen. See another assumption that I didn’t because I wasn’t smiley but actually I didn’t because I don’t know how. I thought the final statement was the clearest in understanding intent when I said we keep coming back! That was the point.

My sister has a Masters in Advertising and there is a saying, “all publicity is good publicity”. Actually that is not completely true but mostly! Keep that in mind! Think of all that were negatively received by the press only to be celebrated by the public. Its all good… Take care…..
