In the statement Payton Gendron read, he said; “That day (May 14, 2022), I made a horrible mistake. I killed individuals by shooting them because they were Black." This is an affront to the relatives of those he murdered! No, Payton Gendron, you didn’t make a mistake. You deliberately set out to kill as many Black people as you could.
Welcome, Kirk! I’m currently battling with my computer and Fedora to be able to see your artwork and hear the music; but from others’ comments I gather both are wonderful! So glad that you’ve managed to escape Huffy. This is a “whole other Planet!”
I’ve just realized that I forgot to welcome you to the Planet, for some reason I thought that you were already here.
Welcome to the Planet Kirk Wassell and hope you enjoy it here. We tend to be a diverse group, but all share the common goal of righting wrongs and adding our voices, whether quietly or loudly, to make this world a better place.
This is the coolest place on the Planet (no pun intended). You will find this a warm and accepting environment, AND if you aren’t around for a few days someone will surely notice.
Once again — welcome!! 🙂
Kalima, Boomer and all the rest of you, Thanks.
I feel like I just re-connected with long lost friends.
This is the place, I am here to stay as long as you’ll have me.
Hold on to your saddles, and ride em cowpeople(pc).
Kirk, I was just about to ask if you if you are the Kirk Wassel on
Fine Art America?
But it looks like Tiger beat me to it? We are a curious bunch!!!
Half of us probably googled you!
If it is you, 2 of my favorites are 3 trees and Sacred Path. Beautiful work!
I thought the name sounded familiar, I found the link on the membership directory…
Silly me, I didn’t even think of that!
Welcome Kirk, and thanks for the very thought provoking song!
What I love about the Planet is the diverse group of folks here.
I learn something new everyday and yeah, you have to be careful, it’s very addictive, though I never feel like I’ve wasted my time.
I’m always curious, how did you find PlanetPOV?
Well, I just returned, saw the nice comments, so let me respond.
I came here after following a link from Nicole473 who I connected with on a Huffington Post topic.
I am an artist, and glad you enjoy my work. Also, glad you enjoyed the song, it was a very cathartic experience to write and perform it. I love the art of performing, putting yourself out there, being vulnerable, you can learn so much by being vulnerable. Being an artist or writer is being able to practice being vulnerable, I find it so freeing. Ooops, I have to watch myself or I will be writing 10 page comments.
As far as becoming a member of this distinguished group of thinkers, it is my privilege. I hope to learn and contribute on many different levels.
Thanks for the welcome, one and all.
Nichole was the one that gave me a cryptic message to the Planet also! That was early last October and she is still at it! Nichole the recruiter!
Yes Bito, Nichole’s comments were so engaging, I just had to see what this was all about. So far, it has been the highlight of my new year.
I think a lot of us feel the same way Kirk, and don’t worry about long posts. The more we know, the better informed we’ll be!!
Big thanks to Nicole.
I am new here and find the level of discourse most invigorating and exciting. What a great forum for creative thinkers to share there ideas and get feedback from others who value freedom to express constructive thoughts and actions etc. Thanks once again.
We can have fierce here if you’d like. Rawr!!!
Yes, I can see there’s teeth in them there jaws. I feel an incredible challenge to keep abreast of all the incredible thoughts that are created here. What a wonderful find, to connect with such a creative mindset.
Welcome to the planet, Kirk. It’s always great to see a “new face.”
Thank you, I have never found a group before like you guys. This site has brought new life into this ole spirit. I will have to pace myself, as engaging the thoughts created here could easily become addictive. Thank you all so much for not being afraid to demonstrate your passion for finding and expressing our never ending search for truth.
Glad you stopped in Kirk, nice to meet ya, take your shoes off and stay awhile… 😎
Welcome Kirk, a warm welcome to The Planet!

Welcome, Kirk. Take a look around and make yourself at home. It’s good to see you here!
Welcome Kirk, please feel free to roam about the Planet!
Kirk, love your website, the photo’s are beautiful, especially the photo of the tree, is that a Birch? And the sea grasses….wonderful.
Mom, thank you so much, those are cottonwood trees from Arizona. I am very fond of Sedona, Az. A very spiritual place.
Thank you for your message, it touched me deeply.
