Just wanted to say congratulations to Dr. Aspler. The new site
is very nice indeed (some extremely minor items to be fixed).
We, on Orchid and others as well who stop by are indebted to Dr.
Without his Buddhist and human stance on sharing and giving we
would not have this site in our lives. I looked for a long time
at a lot of web sites and conversed with a lot of people before
finding someone to work with in this project who understood that
giving is receiving.
I just wanted to give him the thanks he is due and to note that
this is a man who gave a year of his personal leave to this
project, who, along with running a fairly good sized jewelry
company and making his own work and designing has given untold
hours of effort for us, I think we can all tell that Ganoksin
does not benefit financially that much from this effort (please
tell everyone you know to buy Ganoksin jewelry so as to support
the project-retailers especially as Ganoksin supplies wholesale
accounts-this is not a spam-I think Dr. Aspler should be rewarded
for his efforts).
He has certain principles in production (like certain power
tools not used so as to retain the mark of the human hand upon
the work) which represent a philosophical position and stance
regarding metalsmithing (which we all have some connection to)
that is of interest and respect in this world of capitalism and
I respect you.
So, you have done a nice job and a good thing in the world Dr.
Hanuman Aspler. We appreciate it.
KaupKun mak [thanks]
