storey of my life

coming up the valleys and into the hills

child it was a time of celebration and prayer

a morning of the universal day

the twilight of memories now gone

before all this even we were others

we were glorious lithe warriors

how we leapt thru the enemy like ghosts

oh how we streamed twirled and struck

oh how we glutted on their wine and wives

some parts of us forget

we hid in swamps we flew in skies

we dug in the earths

we slipped through their seas

we mastered music we mastered art we mastered beast

we mastered cosmic winds which hauled our souls and their baggage

we climbed aboard ships in africa

and we fell off women in lemuria

i was a clown i was a hunter i was a merchant

you were a wolf you were a star you were a scientist

we caroused through temples and we meditated in motels

cut off from humanity

white noise of the rain

the rain cleansed us

the rain bound us to the ground

while natures forest hemmed us in

words woven by ancestors distant and certainly strange

we struggle with the meaning of their sutras and formulae

or is it we pretend not to know

what our hearts most fear to hear….?

that there is no god

that there is no hope

that this is all an accident

that its all a mistake

something in us cannot accept it

we are in inner conflict and turmoil over this

they say life is stupid but we are smart

unbearable to be wrong so we never question it

still i feel some guidance in my hand

still i hear some whisper in my head

still i feel some movement in my etheric double

i remember pasts i have broken down walls in my mind

i must shoulder all of humanity even tho it doth not exist

i must feed the animal at my door

i must stoke the ravenous fire of creation and destruction

things must come in and other things go out of my world

i must loom large or shrink small

i await further instructions of my sweet liege lord

i understand the signs you will send in symbols and impressions

i will read the clouds and listen in to silences profound

i will dismantle my defences so as to absorb your divine sky

i will kneel to your beautiful images

of thoth and krishna and christos and other saints

oh blessed one say it is true…!

say one day we will walk together on days that last forever

lost in your lovely song in pastures of the bluest cranes

where lotus blooms and wild honey seeps neath arbours bough

little spider spins her silver web

and stately swans drift on Acheron

along the fields of Taliesin

or in lambent company

with you

    Another hauntingly beautiful masterpiece.

    The human condition in a nutshell.

    Albeit a rather big nutshell. Nonetheless.

    This new home of yours, its magical…its inspirational, its a newly found Muse??? Something very special is taking place, the words you paint are so much richer with textures unread for quite some time. I believe , like with so many great writers, musicians, and artists….a evolution takes place. You have placed your head down on many soft pillows and sought the ellusive sandman on different continents, protected by walls built from the strength of many men…roofs designed to shelter you from the bite of cold, the leak of rain.
    But this feels strange, as just one of many observers ….I must ask????

    Is something unseen by the eye of man or the ears of sweet children inhabiting your new home, do you sense something…not dark but filled with light, swirled of light gathering , mixing, swirling all around the framed structure like a rainbow of light, that now protects you and the girls….???

    I ask this only because I have read your words, witnessed your amazing art, pondered the many meanings of your lyrics…all for so long now and for some unexplained reason at the moment…

    You are creating at a different level, it is rather unique…it feels electric from the other side of this small screen with letters and numbers used to communicate.

    Steve…something very special is taking place and I feel that something larger than life and past artistic creations , is about to take place…and we will be with you , at your side, to watch and wonder….how can this be…
    Do you sense something wonderful possessing you , taking you to a higher plateau…and higher level of creativity…

    I feel it…I read it…

    I cannot wait to hear it !!!

    Again..Congrats on the new home…it seems to have done something beyond explanation to you.

    It has revived you.

        I believe that I am right…so it must and shall be…
        I have wondered the dark side many times for far to long…
        Please wish me luck, I am entering into the hospital tomorrow for multiple
        steroid/pain transforaminal injections into 2 levels of my c- spine (again).
        The procedure and aftermath hurt like hell, I WILL BE MEDICATED.
        Hahahahaaaaa…
        Than I’m off the, walking- existing world , for around 72 hours…(in bed- lots of music___ gonna properly revist Magician and Forget URSF , I relish the power that is FY…that album is a diamond gem that more people need to listen to its sparkle- great job on TIM’ s resume…he landed on many peoples radar with his ‘ live ‘ approach , always wondered what the other 3 of u were thinking when he ‘ sales pitched ‘ that recording concept- its spot on, and you must have changed to your best strings because its , the entire album, one of ur finest performances- I EQ my bass up as I listen…NICE !!!
        Yikes…
        Probably don’t remember my last round of injections, it didn’t go so well ( u relayed ur concern at the time- very appreciated !!! ) so iv been holding out…but sadly I’m degeneratingn…So…
        Monday morning it is…
        I’m nervous…

    the time lines often blur when you write
    so surely you must have lived multiple times
    like when the earth was young and the gods rhymed
    whispers and teachings to young and eager minds
    and you were granted wisdom & experience so sublime
    that you’ve never fully forgotten their bright light
    and in your dreams they revisit your current life
    and you’re reminded of your calling in the here & now…

        I was just wondering if there was more to the story than what is let of of ur country by the foriegn press outlets… When some turmoil was brewing in Andy and Davems land last year, it was nice to read an insiders point of view , that’s really all I was interested in, is there more than what we are ‘ allowed ‘ to b witness to…
        From the press…

          Nothing remarkable. Greece is about to collapse, Portugal will be the next. Italy is not in good condition at all and so is Spain. Soon there wont be any middle class cause they´ll be exploited and abused by government to pay for everything…

    i’m with daz on this…..
    even your daily laptop snapshots are somehow different.
    you’ve written beautiful stuff like this before…but not for a long time.
    ineresting,yes…skillful,yes,challenging,thought-provoking,informative,
    radical,yes,yes,yes…all this and more.
    this blog has never been anything less than essential reading.
    yet there’s something here today,some energy..or whatever,that perhaps kathy took with her into the forest.
    wev’e heard nothing from her since…..and i thought we never would,
    but now…..
    ah…now,i’m not so sure……….
