The Original Remains The Best
A personal note to the artists of all ranks on this site:
Many times in the past and (hopefully) far fewer in the future, members and others' work is stolen and misrepresented as being another's. This is done from ego, arrogance and the desire for profit.
The members of this site find that to be repugnant, and eschew it. vStyler is the most recent victim, clearly because of his immense talent. John, take a good look at all who truly love you.
I wish to thank all the members who have stood beside the original artist in the past, present and those who will in the future.
I also wish to thank Jafo. He is the Admin, but he's more. He is the true friend of all who sweat and toil to create. He has in the past and will in the future do the same for one and all.
Today (here) and yesterday he did it for John, and did so even on his birthday. True, we don't celebrate those as we did as children, but they are no less dear...perhaps moreso as they bear witness to the "fewer ahead" arithmetic. I certainly hope the opposite is true for you, Paul.
So, in more than one sense, The Original Remains The Best (and the 'Ja' in Jafo is a true irony).
I remain a fan of all your art, WC-ers.
