On edge

Do you pay attention to your extra senses? Perhaps its time to listen; to give them air time, push them to the front of the queue when you are being bombarded by other information sources (many of them unreliable…). Maybe they even have some good news for you… Continue reading

It all seems so simple to me…

Throw back or way-shower, broken or inspirational, inconvenient or key influencer and right on time. Diversity is always interesting but, right now, it could be crucial and here’s a few thoughts about why (as originally posted to Living Whole). Continue reading

Shared roots and scattered seeds

Collaborative music is one of my biggest passions; the feeling of it goes way beyond the lyrics or the tune and becomes a harmonic of happy coincidences, dismantled wall and powerful juxtapositions. The heart gets recruited, first…not as a cerebral afterthought…when such rhythms are unleashed. It’s a whole-sensory experience, beyond the boundary lines of culture or genre. How I long for the experience to be shared by so many more people; for them to be stirred up from their slumber and to feel what we all find so hard to give form to, as yet, in this world… Continue reading

Being the unpruned tree

We should make room for some wildness in our gardens; it keeps us mindfully connected to the earth and it leads to interesting, surprising and oh-so important new experiences. Some pruning, here and there, asking the garden what it needs, can be helpful; yes, but there is no place for dubiously motivated shears in the next phase of our human adventure. Some would have us all as neatly trimmed and uniform as a garden made up of identical topiary but there’s a whole other tree that we’ve forgotten about (you could call it a Tree of Life); one that is so vast and other-dimensional (though ever-present) that many have fogotten how to look up and see it there… Continue reading
