The World we live in
may be, a land of tears,
pain, broken dreams too,
But it’s also a land of
dreams come true.

And as long as you’re
healthy enough,
Creative and free
You can do it,
You can make
your dreams come true
And live them too!

My Dearest Venus, I am just now viewing your amazing poetic verse and pictorial biography ♥ Yes, yes dear heart,

Bravo! Bravo Venus! A truly wonderful and compelling portrayal of an amazing & beautiful life.
Never stop shining like the moon, burning like the sun, and sparkling like the stars!
For you Venus are truly an amazing artist and an amazing Human being.


popetoussaint
The Venus Code is written... you are a true artist indeed... transplanted over the ocean, you not only survive, you adapt and
overcome what life "the game" throws at you. You have succeeded where many have faltered and failed.
You show your selflessness for others in your art and teaching. I am blessed to know you my friend.
Will comment more later.

Hello my angel my dear friend as you know I am in Israel. I can't begin to explain to you how I was surprised when I visited
your Chanel and so the new video, it is masterpiece and a very important one. Your beautiful voice choked me and brought
tears in my eyes, I want to hug you. Your story is a very important one, it gives a lot of hopes to many people.
Thank you for including my music in your video - All my love
I stand and Salute the American soldier that saved this beautiful family and gave us the Opportunity to discover the Angel of Art,
there is a light in the end of the tunnel this is what this beautiful video is all about .
A story to tell and talk about a fairy tell with a breath taking ending .

Hola Venus.. Fantástico video. Todas tus ediciones, llevan el sello de calidad y creatividad que le imprime tu arte.
El piano de Steve Paled da un marco maravilloso a tus trabajos y nunca mejor acertado, que Steve te llame «El Ángel del Arte»
es una realidad. Gracias Venus


Federalism24
Dear Venus, this is such a gorgeous, touching story blended with poetry, music and art. Thank you for sharing this.
It is obvious why Steve Paled calls you the "Angel of Art". Cheers to you, and God bless.

Your video is a great tribute to America and a reminder to us
of how lucky we are to live in a country of freedom. Wishing you all the best!


MrAznavour65
I was worried when I have seen 20 minutes of video, but I assure you they are quickly passed thanks to the beauty of your
biography, thanks to the passion with which you have told your life and graces to the fact that I have discovered that you are
native of a stupendous place where I have worked and where I was really during the terrible attack of the of the towers twin.
I know well your city Decani, I know very well Pristina, Pec and the whole Kosovo.

Great pic of you glazing into the globe with the Da Vinci code book on the table.
The Princes D painting is great! Your dads and husbands pic are very handsome and you and your mother are beautiful.
Your autobiography is one of a kind. I am very impressed, its the best vid ive seen and listened to in a long time.
Your right, Love makes dreams come true. What a journey. I must say your hair and voice is so beautiful! I love this V.
Much Love to You and Yours

P.S. I LOVE your video, blessings to your artwork and everything in your life. You are a very sweet person Venus "and" you have
special talent. I love the part about your dads studio. The cherrys, guitar playing, books filled with the spirits of the masters.
All of it. Your father sounds so amazing! You are lucky to have a great, graceful man to be raised by and your mother looks so
graceful too. Anyway...I cant help to think you were the sunshine in his eyes and the smile on his face.

I'd love to drink a glass of red wine in that living room. Nice artwork you do. That would be neat having Bill Clinton respond.
I have great respect for Bill Clinton because he supported George Bush in the war in Iraq.
