Cross-training keeps us growing.




Circa '94 - Caught cross-training, bewildered 
somewhere in Hong Kong... 





Fire-ready-aim; The ability to start before you are altogether ready in order to initiate a beginning 
so go ahead 
inscribe an epic poem with a burned carrot
smear your favorite cookbook with marianna 
scribble your heart on your sleeve with your new favorite dish
forgo supper for a marathon dancing onto wet paint
go ester williams dancing within 30 minutes of eating a huge meal 

Who said that? I tend to blame the devil on surrealist’s influences. They had way too much time on their hands. Pretend you do, too.













... with these folks.


Are art forms still viable forms of learning, amuse/ment, or escape? Why is it important to have fun or forget all this worldly world. And, really, should we? The compassionate response is so fleeting, when there s so much to be done. Overwhelming. How large does a hole need to be to crawl into it? Meher Baba was silent for 40 years - until his death. He believed there has been enough talk - time to live it. Thinking this is only impressive if you decide, and then live for 40 more years. would it have been so great if he had taken the silence vow and then got hit by a truck two days later?  Oh wow, he didn't talk for two days before he died!

May be Bushido training is what we all need.
