Mosh pits Annotated bare chest
Stage diving sky diver
Spray the crowd with cold water
Now it’s mosh pits and wet tits
I think I need a cold shower
Cool waters
African girl speaks in English accent
Likes to fuck boys in bands
Likes to watch Westerns
And ride me without the hands
Show me her passport
She’s on her own tour
But you’re beautiful to me
Wave em high girl to the sky
But you’re beautiful to me
Live in the clouds
Wave em high girl, to the sky
But you’re beautiful to me
Life in the clouds
Keep em high ya’ll
Beautiful stars
In the sky… Frank Ocean

 

 

i am fairly certain that the unknowing i am experiencing is very much what my favorite buddhist authors describe. it is the space between leaving the ground after deciding to dive and before i hit the water. there is a tentative quality and a sense of fear and not knowing. it is completely disconnected and yet it is described as the true way to adventure.

i can’t go back-and really wouldn’t even if. where i was had been toxic for some time and i was too sheepish to admit. but i was slowly disengaging from my work and my days and watching in slow motion as a deadly collision came into view.

so i find myself here- on the verge of i know not what. i am trusting my life and second guessing that trust. and trusting again and re second guessing. it’s a bit kooky. but it’s my process.

i have made a choice and taken a direction. it is not the beginning, nor is it even close to the end of the journey. i can’t say just where i am going, nor can i precisely relay where i have just been. that will take some time.

but i have jumped. and i am flying. i notice fear. i feel uninformed. i feel restless. i do not know. but i am flying anyway.

and i am more than grateful for this experience. this is all borrowed time. i never planned it. yet it’s mine. for now.

i have dived right in. they say the water is fine. i guess i’ll let you know.

Chuang-Tsu The purpose of a fishtrap is to catch fish, and when the fish are caught, the trap is forgotten.  The purpose of a rabbit snare is to catch rabbits. When the rabbits are caught, the snare is forgotten.  The purpose of words is to convey ideas. When the ideas are grasped, the words are forgotten.  Where can I find a man who has forgotten words? He is the one I would like to talk to.

i have become acquainted with a sweet man from germany named wolfgang. through our online interactions i have become familiar with dj/producers such as nicolas jaar, dave harrington, robag wruhme, kompakt, and monkey safari (shared below).  these musical  introductions have enlightened me and brought hours of entertainment and stimulation to my world.  i cannot remember exactly what our first encounter was about, but i am completely sure that it has good value.

i encourage you to visit his blog alive .  you can find his youtube page here

it is full of wonderful sounds.  wolfgang  has shown a very pleasant and engaging spirit. my introduction to him created a spark that feels warm, comfortable, and most definitley alive.
