Photography of Grandmaster Baird
Photography has been one of Grandmaster Baird’s passions since he was old enough to hold a camera. His father was an amazing photographer with his own darkroom and equipment. Master Baird tagged along with his father quite a bit learning all he could about photography. He believes it opens ones eyes and heart to the world. Click this link for some previews of his work. Feel free to drop by his long list of photos at http://www.flickr.com/photos/donbaird.
Grandmaster Baird is a studio muscian and has played for most major studios. These days he writes and performs his own music and gives Master’s Classes in clarinet performance techniques and skills.
He has produced 7 cds in as many years and still working on a few more projects soon to be out as well. Click this link to enjoy some snipits of his music. You can also find him listed at CD Baby at this link: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/donbaird2
Peaceful Mind Kung Fu Association
This association began as an inside group only allowing direct students of Grandmaster Baird to be members. In the coming year Master Baird will be reaching out to the Martial Art community at large and opening membership to all martial artists who share the core values of peace and harmony. The website will be going under some major changes and hopefully bring the association to life in a much larger picture than in the past. He hope to touch many lives across the world with the basic principles of unconditional love and forgiveness. That’s been his mantra his entire life: it will be so until he dies.
Grandmaster Baird pops in and out of twitter with little comments and thoughts. It’s kind of a prequel to the launching of his blog. They are working hard to get it ready and online. Won’t be long now. Pop in and enjoy sharing thoughts with Master Baird.
