"A perfect canvas.........
My longtime partner Michelle is an artist and has been so all her life. I am talking the real deal here, not just someone who paints pretty pictures, but one who produces deep and meaningful images based on her lifelong quest for a greater consciousness.
So in the end it is all about finding the right tool for any given situation. For riding waves, a surf mat is the best tool for me as I don't feel a need to dominate them but more to immerse myself completely and utterly allowing them to dictate the experience of the moment. It's a feeling thing, and as I grow older, I seem to be seeking out experiences that allow me to experience greater depths of it.
I am heading this way musically too as I start to immerse myself heavily in to the world of jazz played on the piano about as intense a musical experience of emotion and feeling as it is possible to attain. Today, a superb previously unreleased double cd of the Bill Evans Trio live at the Top of the Gate venue in 1968 was released. Do get your hands on it if you are in to jazz at all!
