Bare Yourself!!

....funny how the ego/identity fears vulnerability....likens it to death really."The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth"surely means that rather than run from being vulnerable we should embrace it,welcome it into our lives with open arms and hearts.We are o.k. with little children and animals but my oh my,how we seem to fear one another!
"Greater Love Hath No Man Than This",or"'tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all" speaks of "A Love Supreme" as Coltrane reminded us through his horn.A love without boundaries which crashes through the paltry world of convention that we and our children may live transformed.
We must know "The Meaning of the Blues"in our lives and in our music for they are as one."'Trane,Bird,Lady Day....they knew and paid the price so that we could live.Next time you hear Billie singing"Hush Now...Don't Explain" remember that!

Shirley Horn "The Meaning of the Blues" unspeakably beautiful:


  1. SO D.I.G. your Blog...

    I've been trying to settle down to capture in words on a page, the in-breaking of last Sunday. I cannot, as yet, wipe the smile off my face long enough to get serious about writing. "Be content with the voice of your soul - it speaks far better than the tongue, for there is no mistaking its intent".(unknown)

    But I am not always just going to be content with my soul's voice. So I will get to it, eventually. In the mean time, I'm enjoying the "high". A poem 4 U - 1974:

    Without A Trace

    Softly spoken glances
    through weary eyes are caught
    whisper unheard tender messages
    in crystal pools of thought.

    Emotions stir in tranquil air
    a touch of time will cease.
    Stillness shrieks far above disturbance
    finding silence crowning peace.
