Sitting In Silence I feel the most at ease. Interesting. Not sure if there is such a thing as silence. I read a book on John Cage once and I guess when you go in one of those silent chamber deals, you know, the padded rooms that will make your ears explode if you stay in more too long, you can hear the roar of your own blood and the firing of your own neurons (or something like that). Basically, silence is a myth. I suppose it's all relative. After a long day of sound, its absence in the still hour of the night is much welcomed. I find more and more these days I enjoy the silence of company. Words are great, but so much more is going on.
Everyone's got a vice (or a few).
Vices making us human.
The wisest people have reconciled their vices with their virtues.
Wonderful time kickin it with Zach today. Got some lunch and caught up, talk about some heavy things, some light things, and whatever lies in-between.
Talking with Nick and going for a walk through the neighborhood.
Working on the live set for 3 two hour sessions. First one was wack, second one was tight, third one was tight.
Thank you Zach for cruising out to the East Bay and for being down to drink a couple beers and watch the warriors game at Petes. Thank you for always being a good friend all these years and for believing in me.
Thank you Nick for our friendship which spans over 20 years now. Thank you for continuing the fight and understanding much about the human condition.
Thank you David K Reynolds for writing Constructive Living and all the help that book has brought me. Always focus on what needs to be done.
I pray for Zach's eye to heal and for his heart to stay open despite the injustice, to be understanding but able to do what needs to be done, no matter how hard it might be.
I pray for Nick to be the commander of his ship. To guide his life and to achieve genuine happiness during his time on earth.
I pray for Ali as she goes out to Michigan to start her service in the working world. May she be excited rather than bored, intrigued rather than satisfied.
