“Lateralus”

Black then white are all I see in my infancy.
red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.
lets me see.
As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
drawn beyond the lines of reason.
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.
Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must
Feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

lets me see there is so much more
and beckons me to look through to these infinite possibilities.
As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
drawn outside the lines of reason.
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.
Withering my intuition leaving opportunities behind.

Feed my will to feel this moment urging me to cross the line.
Reaching out to embrace the random.
Reaching out to embrace whatever may come.

I embrace my desire to, I embrace my desire to
feel the rhythm, to feel connected
enough to step aside and weep like a widow
to feel inspired, to fathom the power,
to witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain,
to swing on the spiral, to swing on the spiral,
to swing on the spiral of our divinity and still be a human.

With my feet upon the ground I lose myself
between the sounds and open wide to suck it in.
I feel it move across my skin.
I’m reaching up and reaching out.
I’m reaching for the random or whatever will bewilder me.
Whatever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one’s been.
We’ll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one’s been.

Spiral out. Keep going…

 

Living Faces

And sometimes, Himself likes to really mess with my head and show up as an actual LIVING BREATHING HUMAN BEING IN THE ROOM WITH ME. Went to the Puscifer concert here in Vancouver on December 2nd. For those of you who may not know, it is a project of the divine Maynard James Keenan. You may know his other projects TOOL and A Perfect Circle. Enjoy the eye candy.

I suppose I should try and explain. It’s not that Maynard IS Himself or vice versa. But every little nuance of him and his music and how it works on my brain and emotions is a perfect conduit for Himself. Similar things happen with Florence and the Machine. Only major difference being that a lot of People talk to me through Florence. Only Himself uses Maynard.
