Riding the Wheel (again)

This fall is/was amazing, as we wound down the last shows and are taking the winter off.  I’m excited to spend the time nurturing creativity… and tucking away the garden for the year.  Next up will be more recordings.  Yay!  Sometimes the gigs keep us out of writing mode, and especially out of recording mode, […]

Something sweet to read aloud to yourself

I recommend reading it aloud to yourself slowly, three times… because it’s so sweet. I am the infinite deep In whom all the worlds appear to rise. Beyond all form, forever still. So am I Ashtavakra Gita 🙂

Being Uniquely You

The longer I’m on the planet…the less I give a sh*t about what people think.  Don’t get me wrong,  I really, truly care about people’s feelings;  if anything, some of you would probably say that I’ve got an overabundance of empathy.  So why would I say that I don’t care about people’s opinions?

Choosing our thoughts and getting free

I was listening to someone talking about their challanges the other day, and it soon became obvious that each problem was actually based upon a judgement.  Yes, each problem was just a thought – not necessarily reality!  And that got us pondering the myriad of belief systems that we humans have.  Each belief is based […]

Zeitgeist Movies

I’m always recommending the Zeitgeist movies, and it just occurred to me that I don’t think I’ve done so on this blog. Why do I recommend them?  Well, if you’re only reading this because you think my bands “rock”,  then it may not interest you, and you might just want to skip this particular post.  […]

The Rediculously Complex Task of Selecting Cover Tunes

It’s a funny thing to be a songwriter.  Lyrics spring to mind often fully formed, or they come in dreams, of sometimes they just sing themselves — all of which is a great delight.  Words can be limiting as well, though.   I love singing, and I like to work with primal tones rather than words […]

Some Thoughts of Consciousness and Religion

For those of us who follow the “Royal Road” of Direct Experience, accounts of other people’s insights, legends, and myth based religions have little appeal.  We may resonate with the person(s) who had the original insights, but we understand that each time someone has a direct experience of consciousness, Oneness, divinity…LIFE, (whatever you choose to  […]

Life is Life’s Greatest Gift

Psychanaut is coming along great! (although there is some tweaking as is always necessary) Still looking for just the right chemistry in players.  And the recordings are one by one being mixed/mastered.  The songs sound really great.  And its a great time for creativity!  New tunes are coming along.  But what I’m most pleased about […]

Life gets so busy!

OK,  I know my postings on facebook have been minimal, and the newsletter hasn’t been sent in a while, and I’ve cut down on blogging too.  This is not because I don’t love you guys.  I do!  It’s just that I’m really focusing on slowing down just a bit and spending less time online ~ […]
