Dear Donna, Lee, George, et al.,

I am more than glad to have discovered you guys and visa versa! If anything...that is the beauty of the NET. I have been planning and working towards a very lucritive environment I liken to a "Hard Rock Cafe for the Soul" in Creativity Cafe...

If you have explored my site, you know I have the ear of both corporations and institutions such as Siggraph that featured "KidCast For Peace; Solutions for a Better World" , one example of the "programming" and INTER-ACTIVITIES for our proposed environment(s).

This nurturing ground for the creative spirit we are developing, thinking about, etc. makes us part of a KARAS, a Sanskrit word for members of a team aligned in a task to be performed on Gods behalf. They must find each other in order for thy work to be done. I have come to see after my great many successes that without the team, I will not be successful no matter how detailed a business plan reached the richest eyes.

Therfore I call on you to continue this dialoge and perhaps come to San Francisco at your earliest convienence and GROK the details to which I have prepared Creativity Cafe plans and perhaps pave the way for us to collaborate on both Major (San Francsico) Market versions of this membership based club and the village variety.. A storytelling parlor that is really a collecting point for people of talent, vision, inspritation, technical ability etc, who collaborate to produce ongoing "Theatre Of the Future" experiences of what appears to the public as serendipty over the course of their presence in our space.... Becuase they always seem to be moved further on their paths when they leave... something was awakened in them in their Creativity Cafe adventure. That is because we are practicing pronoia: http://creativity.net/pronoia.html.

What we are esentially creating is a "broadcast node..." a community center for creative communications (and a hang out...new school...artists gallery, resouce center....etc. yatta yatta yatta) where the highly interactive *** experience *** we conjour for audiences are documented, packaged for distribution in various media and played live on the Internet. Ladies and gentlement we (the Creativity Cafe Collective... or whatever), are the producers of Killer CONTENT that heals... [talk about mixed metaphores ;-] that will truly unlock the Creative Force on this planet through its mass media networks...and finally allow the creative flow so needed. to reinvent humanity and its systems. Enabling artists to create the NEW MYTHS.

I will be starting a topic in Creativity Cafe's comminity forum with your message and my response. The address is: http://creativity.net/wwwboard/wwwboard.shtml. Lets interact publicly there for the time being and see who else we might attract. I have two Venture Capital folks making inquiries about our plan and management team. If you have any interest, PLEASE FORWARD IMMEDIATELY, your resume.

Keeping the fiath that after 20 years on this path. And in these final moments of giving up because the greatest team members have moved on to seek paying work... that perhpas you can be... help precipitate yet another team.... with elements more seasoned for success. I am at my breaking point and welcome your energy...
