deep in space where disconnexion began
deep in soft space
luxurious space
where the lighted lands travel
deep in a unique place
under a star
a long dark shadow cast from a future bright
except he that might see it
just might….
vague architechture has infested in the city
moss obelisk …a green needle
weed men rolling in clover
the pendulum ceases to swing
time being stands still
the birds start singing for the time being
and for the time being its raining
grey afternoon by the cold sea
glad you have a warm space to inhabit
safely inside my fifty veneers
i crouch at the bottom in a baal -boy suit
at the bottom of the barrel
we find hope
music is everywhere
i suddenly realise it doesnt feel like saturday!
saturdays usually mah fave day but todays lifeless n listless
for the time being the doors are open
you know which doors i mean little sweetie
the doors
and you stumble thru theze doors as naive as can be
never knowing anything
at least music has prepared you for some of this
sooner or later you will pass by here
a meandering river wandering across time
black basalt rock protruding thru streams
why do you suppose the amphibs are all dying?
reeds choking the lakes
red organisms fuck resovoir
human beings dump toxic ash in pristine wonderland
i mean, why not?
what good is a pristine wonderland if not for burying barrels
of nuclear sludge??
the future has arrived
and its fast n greedy n impatient
just like it always is
easy to talk, isnt it?
forlorn birdies fight thru the air
the tress are tossed about
my eyes begin to ache in this cold electric light
uh oh!
it must be time to split

    Put on your’e spacesuit and exit it quietly………….

    Time will reveal all
    Space rock,
    they just don’t get it
    fortune say’s we do
    Time spins over our heads
    cascading sequences of rain
    we will
    follow destiny
    find the middle of our sphere
    Undone in the markets
    falling over my dead feet
    the stale air of the breathing masses..
    my own path opens before me.

    I can feel your pain. My eyes ache, too (but it’s probably cuz I’ve had my contacts in for 18 hours). I send you a warm, fuzzy ambient hug through cyberspace dude. Something tells me Suso Saiz’ “Hypnotics” CD will do the trick for ya, an ambient guitar album to look upon in awe. It’s somewhere in that pile of 19, if you can find it.

    The decline and spoiling of the natural world – the pursuit of profit above all, callous disregard to this creation; I can’t understand it. Species everywhere, colorful amphibians in central america, on the way out.

    What have they done to the earth?
    What have they done to our fair sister?
    Ravaged and plundered and ripped her and bit her
    Stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn
    And tied her with fences and dragged her down

    Heard that somewhere, another set of doors perhaps.

    Earth, sweet Mother Earth, what are you worth?

    I still occasionally visit your bloggie, SK, but never have a clue what to write. Hope you are enjoyin’ the downtime – maybe gettin’ back in the studio will make ya feel better (hint hint). Hope no more crazies are bugging you and your family either – that post bothered me and I hope your all safe and they caught the guy and sent him to Guantonemo (excuse spelling).

    Stand Fast and Dig, SK.

    GO TIGERS (first World Series game tonight, if it don’t rain. YA-HOO!!!) !!!!

    The sound you’ve created has become part of the landscape of my life. As I travel down the hall of saints I see you there with your instruments suffused in light and sound. I can’t believe how lucky we are to have heard your songs. Worth the price of incarnation just for this experience alone…

    Those doors of perception open very suddenly sometimes don’t they and they appear out of nowhere it seems. Then you are faced with the decision of “which one to open and which realm to explore?” Saturdays are usually my favorite days too, but sometimes I feel like just wasting this precious day by catching up on sleep. Who needs sleep anyway?? Opened my doors about 11 today, feeling a little out of it. Got lots to do, things to purchase, wife to hang with two crazy cats to feed, lawn to mow, etc. At least it’s a sunny day in Chicago, chilly as it is…fall is coming, joy. I’ll take Hanalei bay anyday. Oh well, Steve, I hope your day’s a little fun fo you. I know how it feels to be let down by that favorite saturday. I hate when weekends suck, they are supposed to be the best…especially for those of us who have to slave as weekday drones. I believe I will change that soon though. So who knows, maybe Tuesday or Wednesday might be the favorite day of the week! If it wasn’t for music in general, let alone the ability to actually play music, I would be dead from disappointment in the world.

    It makes me crazy to see how wasteful and careless MOST humans are. Not saying I am perfect, but I am trying to be more aware and do my miniscule share. Got some freaky news the other day about WATER usage on Earth, and it is not pretty. Basically we use fresh water much faster then we can actually replenish it PROPERLY. Just think, there are over a BILLION people in our world that don’t even have access to clean drinking water, let alone satinary/waste systems. There are cities now that have less adequate sewer systems than those of ancient Rome or Greece. But hey, here’s a good idea; let’s build ANOTHER fucking GOLF COURSE in southern Arizona or better yet…VEGAS, because the desert needs more people there trying to build English gardens in their back yards…despite the fact that the water table in the southwestern US is depleting alarmingly fast. I bet most people don’t even know those statistics, because if everyone was truly aware and educated…ah well, that is a whole other discussion. Anyway, much love to you and the family, Kilbo. Glad your gig went well. All the best to all of TTB family…
    Happy Saturday,
    Ben V.

    There’s sometimes a buggy.

    A man’s attitude… a man’s attitude goes some ways.

    The way his life will be.

    How many drivers does a buggy have?

    Now… did you answer cause you thought that’s what I wanted to hear,
    or did you think about what I said and answer cause you truly believe that to be right?

    Is that somethin’ you agree with?

    So, let’s just say I’m driving this buggy.

    Now, if you fix your attitude,

    you will see me one more time, if you do good.

    And, you can ride along with me.

    Good night.

    we can travel into the future
    with our own eyes
    peep through the doors
    and like what we see, or not
    its up to us to change it, through our children too
    but stop to enjoy what we have already
    absurdity in the lives around us
    you have to laugh
    or cry
    i choose to look and smile in wonder
    with the eyes of a child

    Dear Steve,

    Am going to have severe withdrawals on November 23.
    Do we have to go cold turkey? How about once a week, then once a month etc. You know – kinda ease us into it?

    To he-of-the-impossibly-straight-hair:
    I loved the Spanish Club gig – great vibe
    And the violet and magenta flowers with green
    Swirling kaleidoscopically in the background
    Were kind of mesmerising.
    Uncomfortable being right under your nose, though,
    And always wish those affable hecklers would
    Put a sock in it
    And save it for the footy.
    Hey, you looked, seemed – felt – really well
    And it was impressive to see you later
    Handling them hemmers-in
    With directness and patience and kindness
    Honouring old tristesse
    – Not a trace of contempt did I detect
    In your steady gaze.
    I was the one who asked for Rob
    – Didn’t mean to snub ya
    But too much on the spot(light) even for me.
    Caught up with him eventually
    And reminisced about clogging up his friend’s spa
    With my herbs at a party in ’89.
    I made buckwheat pancakes choc with hooch
    Then later someone fell down the stairs and hit her head.
    The ambulance-men blundered in,
    Chastising her for being a silly girl;
    I was so stoned I hissed at them
    ‘Coz they undid some of the healing I had been sending her.
    Hope you did a banishing on those driveway hooligans
    – I reckon they were just desperate for a pee.
    Both out of their respective trees
    But just enough logic left to figure
    That most people would terrorise THEM
    If they were caught pissing in the driveway
    So they thought they’d get in first.

    It was rhetorical.
    My response was to show I understood
    and was amused by the proper noun reference
    of something that is typically a temporary reference.

    how do I fix it?

    There can be only one at the helm, right?

    I see your visage
    it’s dusty blue
    between the haze of
    an early quetzacotan sunrise
