This may open a "Can of Worms" for some? -----
WHAT A SHAME!!!!!!!! -- To Live one's life and accomplish something that is 
admired by many, ---- then, to die and to take your secrets with you. 
Hopefully, this is not the norm for most creative/crafts people. If there is 
to be progress, we should be willing to share our ideas with someone, or at 
least to write down our ideas/our secrets for use after our death. Otherwise, 
your secret dies with you, and you leave no legacy. Your IDEAS, and your name 
will live on, only if you share your life's work with someone.
