#31 Roll The Credits
Who is Maestro Gaxiola: http://www.artist-link.blogspot.com
It’s time to give credit to those who made this trip possible, and made it such an enjoyable one for me. First of all I have to give a huge thank you to Alice and cousin Doug. They worked on the planning for this trip months in advance. By telephone and by e-mail they hammered out every detail, including maps, motel reservations and advance tickets to almost every attraction we went to. They had plane tickets, airport transportation, motels, eating places, special attractions, just about everything worked out in advance. All I had to do was to show up., …and write my blog. And, as for my blog, I need to make it clear that the opinions and views expressed in my blog are mine and mine alone. They do not necessarily express the views of Alice, cousins Doug, Bill, Judy, David, Rob, John, or the Yoopers Bill and Elaine. I came, I saw, and I wrote. I know my views may be a bit harsh and even controversial at times, and I know that the “kill the messenger” syndrome may be in play. But as an artist, I call’m as I see’m, because that’s my job. Future generations, when no self-interest is involved, will determine the truth or non-truth of my opinions and my views. That being said I want to thank all those mentioned above for being tolerant of me and allowing me to participate in the joy of seeing so many wonderful and beautiful things on this trip.
