I was a submarine.

I am a submarine.

“… Suddenly, I would open wide

– inhale and

soar up

– breaking open the astonished still seas.

Majestically.
A water birth.
A sudden kiss.

Awe riSING fire on water …”

First to let go of life.

My Uncle Bob at 74 in October 2006.

The sound of his voice is the sound of the OPEN blue sky to me.
His gaze towards me emboldened me to take the FIRST steps.
He calls OUT my adventure by the  creative template + integrity of his life.

My work is an exploration,
a dive for pearls and sacred listening – call and response.
IMPROVISATIONAL COURAGE
My internal constellation is a luminous vast sky and sea that sings, whispers and dances.
I follow, discover and explore its sonicenergy with my divining rod.
I am a faithful  and clear vehicle of listening – a sensitive + keen stringed instrument.
Sacred listening.
TRUST  
FAITH  
RADICAL HOPE
The OPEN compositions are
dialectical revelations of  
the capacity to RISE,
sustain radical HOPE,
be STILL in ambiguity,
and
BELIEVE in what your blood and bone already KNOW to be true
like a farmer, a detectivepriest, and an improvisational musician.
STILLNESS.
SACRED LISTENING.
OPEN.
Being OPENED.
Willing to be OPEN.
Willing to be OPENED.
Being BREATH.
Being A/LIVE.
