Viewer feedback humbling from CTV’s Chairman George

I am deeply moved by many people’s messages to me this past week about the effect the documentary had on them when it was shown in Canada last weekend. Words like ” courage , amazed , enthusiasm , honesty , charisma , genius mind , mesmerized by the bouzouki , tenacity , exuberance , passion , inspiring ” were used to describe people’s (your) reactions upon seeing CG. One young man at George Brown College in Toronto
has proposed to write a folk song . I gladly accept.

I prefer to talk about Chairman George in the third person as he is a character, tho true to life. It is a gift to be told that CG brings out ‘hope , joy and inspiration in people’. Thank you. One viewer alleged I use music however for my own purpose, that I like advertising myself. I allege it’s all about serving the people. Please continue sending me your genuine thoughts.

    Hello again George!
    Thank you for acknowledging the
    Question – Will you ever be playing your bouzouki in Montreal?
    Take care.

    I first saw the documentary a few months ago and was shaking my head at the beginning and then laughing and smiling til the end. When I saw it again last week, it was like seeing an old buddy again. I love it! Way to go George! I have two nieces who are half-Greek (is there such a thing?) and spent a dozen years hanging out with Chinese people learning tai chi and speaking baby Cantonese, so I really appreciated seeing your story. Onward ho!
