“This is love:

to fly toward a secret sky,

to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment.
First to let go of life.
Finally,

to take a step without feet.”

– Rumi

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.

 is dedicated to the

LIGHT

of my

BELOVED

Uncle Bob.

X

He is looking at me, SEEING me – as he always could.

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.
