A place for introverts

If all they want is for us to keep on shifting the same old furniture of life around into different yet, ultimately, finite arrangements in an ever-repeating cycle then keeping us so busy, time-poor and obsessively preoccupied by each other is the way to go about it. But, if we want anything truly new to occur to us, the kind of breakthrough that shifts a paradigm, we need those who do far better left alone to be allowed to spend more time doing what they do, the way they do it, untampered with… Continue reading

It all seems so simple to me…

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.

Taking the route least travelled

When unexpected, inconvenient, things happen, whether these are major events or the relatively trivial, its an opportunity to adapt…to forge glorious new routes…to be fully present…to appreciate our own curiosity and the courage to go off-piste…and to notice all the unexpected gifts along the way. Via the oddly winding detour of the path least travelled, we may seem to have had to go much further/longer/harder than by the “conventional” routes that others choose, or even to take a step backwards for a while, yet we are rewarded with a stronger sense of going somewhere than if we just sat there hoping for something to shift or to “get somewhere” we believe we want to go, like someone stuck in a gridlock traffic being shunted along bumper-to-bumper yet with little say-so over their own progress. The end of any journey, when we seem so near and yet so far from some hoped-for destination, can feel the most challenging of all and yet, approached mindfully, this is when we get to appraise how glad we are that we came this particular way, owning the magnitude and perfection of our own unique path. This realisation, rather than “arriving anywhere” per se, is the moment when we notice the bizarrely coherent joy of this lifetime’s winding journey, however many seeming detours it has taken us on… (read more).
