The thing that hits me most is that we see so much poverty and inequality effecting the helpless,{children,elders} and we sing about it and call it a wrap. Amazing pr but it does nothing to resolve the issue at hand. Once we set the table, we must act. Use your energy and creativity to keep the light on the issues. Give something so much heat that folks must address something beyond the Grammy’s. I call it Harmonics in action. Vibrations force response. The law of physics and spiritual mathematics prove this. Use your skills and paint on a canvas,. Let’s do something beyond bowing and scraping and pointing to the other guy. It’s a fair trade off for our gifts.FlamingosFlamingos

I’m trying to shake off the sameness in the piece i’m working on. I can get the tune to pop for this project, however, I doesn’t strike that place where I haven’t been before.

I think an artist has to stay away from the commercial media long enough to get that inner ear back in tune. So much junk is coming in the head from the crap they call music that the pipes get filled with crud. Most of the music is formula. Its the same tasteless autotuned gunk that brims over your sense of balance. It’s like commercial jingles that numb you into submission.

Normally my answer is to get as far away from music and as close to nature as I physically can. It doesn’t have to be grand like some seaside resort. It can be a lake. All I think is needed is a natural rythym. Whatever the method, I’ve got to be at a place where the next note is something I had no idea I could play. It’s called art. Anything else is tracing.IMG 0008
