Duration over pitch.
In America the students listen.
In Europe the adults listen.
Macrobiotic diet.
Interpenetration of unlimited centers.

"the traditional reason for making a piece of music in India: to quiet the mind thus making it susceptible to divine influences."

"I would say the function of music is to change the mind so that it does become open to experience, which is inevitably interesting."


cool Bernie Spear poem:
Long flight back to the Upper East Coast.
Trees and trees as the night fades.
Pre-dawn new morning crossing the border.
Ferry to the island questing for all her riches.
Bumpy jeep ride to outer east of the islet.
Eyes bug out of your head as it appears.
Sweet hollow peeling perfection reeling.
Paddle out eye the horizona as you take it all in.
Hit the razor edge lip and hide in the liquid cloak.
You are scoring.

A big thanks to Dennis for the upgrade to a 21" monitor. We broke it in by watching Monty Pythons Holy Grail last night. I almost broke my back trying to move the thing up though! Has to weigh 30+lbs, and after a 2hour session last thursday, ugh. fun innerbar madness with a crowd and a half.
You know what you OB guys need, one of those SC type point breaks where you walk out to the point, jump in, take a few strokes to the takeoff, grab a wave, work it all the way to the beach, hit the sand and walk back out. I have to say they are really great, you should look into getting one of those. For the time being, I've moved closer to OB and further from those lovely points, so I'll pitch in on moveing one up closer to the city. Just think about it.

#3 - you're welcome. Don't worry, after surfing OB for a few months, you'll be able to run up and down three flights of stairs with two of those monitors and not even get winded :-)

The water was about 55 degrees in LA last saturday, and by sunday it was warm enough to trunk it in San Diego. I really didn't want to come back up here to the cold windy waters.
