I remember when, in history class or social studies, we would hear American democracy and the American republic referred to as “the great experiment”. Could common people govern themselves without the rule of a monarch, an aristocracy? The monarchs and aristocracy, including the religious power structure, along with the bankers, had been controlling Western civilization for centuries and were always working to increase their control.
America, the whole idea of the United States, was a slap in their face.
We read, every once in a while, about whether or not we’re still fighting the Second World War. Maybe the fascists weren’t really defeated? However, I would say we’re still working on the Revolutionary War. We still have not achieved independence, freedom from the “old world” bankers and monarchs.
I remember when George W. Bush made the statement in an address to Congress that:

”I completely fell in love with Cristian Mihai’s beautiful way of writing. His main character, Chris Sommers, is an embodiment of realism. His persona was much attune to what some of us feel about ambition, love, and the realization of heartbreaking disappointment. I felt a connection to him in a much deeper level than I’ve ever known. Mihai’s writing style just reaches out to you, captures you – without letting go for a moment. It’s also very personal that you just can’t help but love the main protagonist. There were times where it pained me to stop reading because I wanted to note down my favorite quotes from the novel because it was just that amazingly brilliant.” – E.S. praise for Jazz.
One copy of each of my titles(that’s a total of four books). Signed, delivered to your doorstep. Also, included will be an essay never before written. Just for you.
”This book was very unexpected. It made me think about what is means to be a writer, what the process of creation means not only to the creator but to those who are affected by what has been written. Much of what Mihai says here will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled to put words on paper.” – Cynthia Dumarin, praise for The Writer.
$29.99, international shipping included. Only one bundle remaining.
”I was drawn in after reading the first page. Being a “hopeless” romantic I could empathize with both characters but I felt a connection with “him”. The authors description of loneliness, excitement, regret and pain is so intense, I became emotional while reading. It is gripping, honest and touching. Beautiful story…” – Melanie Lawson, praise for 2:22 AM.

I noticed this debate on the Internet for quite some time. What is art? People keep trying to figure it out. If writing is art, if not. How much money do you have to make to call yourself an artist? Or you have to have a certain amount of followers on social media, perhaps? Do you get a certificate from someone? Some proof of being an artist?
What is art exactly?
It’s all art. The way you dress, how you walk, how you talk. It’s all art. Poetry and philosophy and paintings and songs and movies and the soundtracks of those movies – sometimes even their reviews are art. Every joke ever made, every scribbled note, every photograph. All the fairy tales and the ballads and the legends.
It’s all art.
Architecture. City planning. A mathematical algorithm. A software program. A smartphone. The Internet.
The way the stars shine bright against the night sky. The sound of the rain. The smell of flowers on a summer afternoon.
This world, and everything in it.
It’s all art.
Every bit of beauty that was ever witnessed by another human being is art. Everything that ever made us forget ourselves in admiration, every little thing that took our breath away.
