“Fright is something one can never get over. When a warrior is caught in such a tight spot he would simply turn his back to the ally without thinking twice. A warrior cannot indulge thus he cannot die of fright. A warrior allows the ally to come only when he is good and ready. When he is strong enough to grapple with the ally he opens up his gap and lurches out, grabs the ally, keeps him pinned down and maintains his stare on him for exactly the time he has to, then he moves his eyes away and releases the ally and lets him go. A warrior, my little friend, is the master at all times.”
Carlos Castaneda

A Separate Reality

Flowers in the Guns Revisited


A while back I wrote a post about a childhood event where I drew a picture of flowers coming out of guns. Then a few months ago, out of the chaotic workings of the internet I got a surprising and pleasant email appeared in my inbox from a fellow human named Stu Martin. Stu is a song writer and performer who’s 2006 released album Love & Peace opens with a song called “Flowers in the Guns” (written in 2002).

We emailed back and forth very slowly over a few months (Andreea and I had just moved out to Mociu and we were flooded by work and mostly disconnected from the Internet) in an attempt to get the song to me using online means. That didn’t work out so some weeks ago (I think – I don’t really have a sense of time anymore) Stu asked for my address to send me a CD. I forgot about it … very busy these days.

Yesterday on the way back from the village center we stopped at the postoffice and Andreea came out holding an envelope containing a CD – Stu’s CD – it came from Australia. It’s a beautiful CD and I am greatful for the universe’s generosity in bringing us together and granting us this experience of connection around the planet and across time.

Thank you Stu for reaching out and for the CD.

    […] came from Australia, from Stu. Years ago, around the time we moved to the village, Stu connected with me and now after more than 7 years, there is finally a video-clip that makes it easier to share […]
