“… and it’s always been a thing with me to feel that all men know the truth, see? … The truth itself doesn’t have a name on it. To me. Each man has to find this for himself, I think. I believe that men are here to grow themselves into the best good that they can be… I’m not interested in trying to say what it will be, I don’t know. But I believe that good will only bring good.”
John Coltrane

Body Knows

n

“The reason you keep on coming back to see me is very simple; every time you have seen me your body has learned certain things, even against your desire. And finally your body now needs to come back to me to learn more. Let’s say that your body knows that it is going to die, even though you never think about it. So I’ve been telling your body that I too am going to die and before I do I would like to show our body certain things, things which you cannot give to your body yourself… So let’s say then that your body returns to me because I am its friend”
Carlos Castaneda from “Journey to Ixtlan”

Wish: Chair

n

I would like a comfortable office chair to sit in. I spend more time in front of the computer then I care to admit. Over the past few weeks I have taken on major development work for SweetClarity – which means I am sitting at the computer more then ever. It could be nice to have a comfortable chair to sit in. I also realized that this may have affected some of my computer based creative work. Creative work (such as selecting, editing, processing images into all kinds of media presentation) can be very time consuming (lot’s of waiting involved). I might as well get comfortable!

Actually this extends to additional sitting apparel at home. A nice couch to read on… hmmm…

Tomasz Stanko

n

During one of my first sessions with Shahar, more then two years ago, we were working in his mother’s apartment (!) and he played a CD called “From the Green Hill” by Tomasz Stanko. It just came to me as I was searching for something to listen to. This music is etched in me due to the powerful context of the work in which I encountered it. Here is live set with Tomasz Stanko (the trumpet player).

My only problem with this clip it that it is too short and ends abruptly.

Magical Deer

n

“A magical being is a sight to behold. I was fortunate enough to cross paths with one. Our encounter took place after I had learned and practiced a great deal of hunting. Once I was in a forest of thick trees in the mountains of central Mexico when suddenly I heard a sweet whistle. It was unknown to me; never in all my years of roaming in the wilderness had I hears such a sound. I could not place it in the terrain; it seemed to come from different places. I thought that perhaps I was surrounded by a herd of a pack of some unknown animals. Read More »

Fatherland Raped Motherhood

n

Frente’s Marvin the Album album is one of the most surprising, amusing and original albums I encountered (many years ago). To the best of my knowledge the band were together long enough to publish 2 cd’s then they disappeared. ‘Cuscutlan’ is one of my favorite songs on the album. The video is not officially related to the song, but it did bring a smile to my face. Listen for  the lyrics:
