  3. I haven’t posted a banjo video in awhile, so here’s what I’ve been working on the past few days. My clawhammerin’ is really coming along :)
    My instrumental version of “Who’s Gonna Raise These Babies” by Cary Ann Hearst.

  7. "Immature people falling in love destroy each other’s freedom, create a bondage, make a prison. Mature persons in love help each other to be free; they help each other to destroy all sorts of bondages. And when love flows with freedom there is beauty. When love flows with dependence there is ugliness.

    A mature person does not fall in love, he or she rises in love. Only immature people fall; they stumble and fall down in love. Somehow they were managing and standing. Now they cannot manage and they cannot stand. They were always ready to fall on the ground and to creep. They don’t have the backbone, the spine; they don’t have the integrity to stand alone.

    A mature person has the integrity to stand alone. And when a mature person gives love, he or she gives without any strings attached to it. When two mature persons are in love, one of the great paradoxes of life happens, one of the most beautiful phenomena: they are together and yet tremendously alone. They are together so much that they are almost one. Two mature persons in love help each other to become more free. There is no politics involved, no diplomacy, no effort to dominate. Only freedom and love."

  12. "Like seeing roasted meat and other dishes in front of you and suddenly realizing: This is a dead fish. A dead bird. A dead pig. Or that this noble vintage is grape juice, and the purple robes are sheep wool dyed with shellfish blood. Or making love—something rubbing against your penis, a brief seizure and a little cloudy liquid. Perceptions like that— latching onto things and piercing through them, so we see what they really are. That’s what we need to do all the time—all through our lives when things lay claim to our trust—to lay them bare and see how pointless they are, to strip away the legend that encrusts them. Pride is a master of deception: when you think you’re occupied in the weightiest business, that’s when he has you in his spell."

  14. Spring has sprung and I did some exercising outside today. Ran around in the fields of dandelions just feelin’ good and thankful for this wonderful day. Wind in my hair and sun on my face and music in my ears.

     


  15. Damnit to hell! I completely missed out on this awesome opportunity to learn about fermenting and film for my project just because of my disorganization. I coulda sworn I put it in my calendar on my phone but I guess not. I’ve just been so busy with my new jobs and trying to find an apartment and getting my car fixed and a MILLION OTHER THINGS that I haven’t been focusing on my project at all… I know that things are going to unfold soon and I feel that when I get settled in I will be able to direct my focus to my projects. Everything happens for a reason. There will be other opportunities. Trying not to be frustrated with myself! :)
