L e o n a r d   B e r n s t e i n   “Art cannot change events, but it may affect people so that they are changed… because people are changed by Art – enriched, ennobled, encouraged – they then act in a way that may affect the course of events by the way they vote, behave, and think. 

 “..We're only guests here..

Trespassing beyond physical boundaries as human souls,

reflecting relevant truths about the universal puzzle of our Unity
