I am dreaming of a confident world…
Where we take responsibility for our actions, towards each other and towards the Earth from which we draw sustenance.
We are all connected to each other and the commonality of experience. I want to share this experience.
I envision a world where due respect is given to all life on our planet, from plankton to primates. A world where we find heroism in the smallest act of kindness. A world where we laugh at the joyful and the ridiculous. Where we find strength in love, in the righteous and revert to the golden rule on this convoluted path of life.
Welcome to the Deeper Side, where you will find what’s been brewing in my mind’s recesses: curiosities and experiments, events and musings, anecdotes and projects, music I’m recording and books I’ve been writing. I’ll probably skim upon strange expressions of style and cross several fine lines of folly. Like me and my interests, this blog will hop, flutter, fly all over the place. I place my trust in the idea that the superficially different, the disparate and disjointed buds of inspiration will flower into a more-meaningful, a more profound sense of understanding.
