keeping time in my head
always a quarter b-b-beat behind…
That tired beautiful animal in me needed to die,but not like a sacrificial offering…
My friend Robindra promised he’d show me some DJ ropes (because I wanna spin and mix and stuff when I grow up). He got a gig in North Van and said I could tag along for the night.

How I revolutionized my relationship to “doing”: Meet The Divine Medicine Woman & The Impeccable Street Sweeper
I began to create the inner — and outer — conditions that helped me make “my medicine”, my art, my best work… I had to sledgehammer some mental structures. I unstrapped years of “shoulds” off my back — and I found wings – massive wings.

We look at how we over worked it, or how we missed the mark, or all the reasons it, they, you, me, we fell short. We start to shrink the value of the past so that we can justify taking new aim, or giving notice, or taking the leap that will move us in a new direction….
