another sweet day

the water is green and foaming

lovely dove is homing

i’m combing through pasts i never lived

black cat sniffed the air

i guess this is the beginning of magic

prince among  cats agree with me

its peachy soft in the sky right now

everything so still and quiet

the wilted yesterday in a little vase

it seems to sing something under the silence

the trembling web just beyond the light

on the eve of a strange comet

another night the red stars

i feel the birds moving in sky

i feel the fish moving in sea

i feel the worms moving in earth

i feel the spirits moving in ether

in the dark when everything comes down

a warm embrace a hand touches me

although i am alone someone moves against me into desire

although my eyes are closed i see with my fingers

my fingers  numb i hold on with my eyes

behind every ocean i’m down at the shore

behind every world i’m hung in the skies

behind every clock the time thats next door

i wonder how long i’ll remain here in guise

i wonder what then i’m hanging in for

the pleasures get steeper the deeper you go

its nice but can i come at the price without consent or prior advice?

i fall over  picking myself up

although i am alone the curtains move against closed window

the radiator seethes and gasps like a bunch of little asps

the orange moon soon shed its redness

the risk gone the disc shone on

no oblivion could sunder the orb from the sun

my heart is with the lord in kingdom come

all angels scream out his praises in phases of ecstasy

everyday we will walk and talk together by the limpid pools

oh an idyll the hornbill see how the golden bream race in schools

blue swan horizon decorates my heavenly pad

i hang out with your dad its sad we passed this way

i keep waiting for sleep or a knock at the door

and that sweet day has come back once more

    And both of you in divine beards entwined and the magnetic swords crossing your fabulous words from electric underworlds explored at enchanted dusks and the blur of a silver disc drifting in the frozen lakes and you, you who are a master of disguise covering me with your cape where I finally hide, my hotel womb, my impossible room where I lay looking at the clear sky.

    Nice! A nature mystic delving into the unknown, facing our own inexplicable presence in time and space. The illusion of a being a seperate entity experiencing form.How was it ever possible?

    Beautiful Steve.

    On the subject of the hereafter I went to “Bands of Your Town” at the Judith Wright Centre last night for the awarding of the Grant McLennan Memorial Fellowship. The Grant grant…

    All of the finalists did a version of one of Grant’s songs as part of their set. “Thought that I was over you” got an airing and there were great versions of “Bye Bye Pride”, “Was There Anything I Could Do?”, “Bachelor Kisses” and more. Damn it if those Go-Betweens songs didn’t bring a tear to the eye. Sublime songwriting, wonderful night.

      If I knew that all would be covering my favourites I would have made an attempt to go. Disappointed I missed it. Glad that you had a good time. Spring Rain also always a good one for me. x

    “all angels scream out his praises in phases of ecstasy”
    (was that meant to be phrases?)
    something I have been listening to this week is
    Sacred Chants of Shiva by Craig Pruess
    and when I listen to the following track
    I think of a chorus of angels in ecstasy singing this praise
    then you go and mention exactly that in your blog?
    interesting synchronicity
    here it is, immerse yourselves folks

    I really love your blog today Steve! Very Beautiful in this World and the Next! If you spoke with my Dad you’d get a kick out of the guy along with my cat Cosmo, both real cool characters! They’re missed everyday and reading this beautiful blog today made me think of what it might be like in the this life and the next.

    Thank you for the very kind words last Monday, your heart is filled with smiles and compassion behind that silly gruff stuff…1 week in the hospital, released just yesterday (Saturday)….emergency pain block procedure late on Monday afternoon…I became totally unable to walk on my left side…the nerve roots were swollen and also had fluid which was causing some serious problems that had to be removed….i am around 50% now as they tossed me out of the hospital, still barely able to get around….I’m confined to strictly bed rest for the next 10 days which will b interesting with Kristina always wound up and ready to spin and dance, bless the energy and charm of a 4 year old angel…
    Many well wishes from friends and family, so greatly appreciated….I’m just really nervous…this was really bad, I was pretty afraid that it was the ‘game-changer’ ….just so anyone who really cares can fully comprehend….due to the extreme nature of my disc degeneration at multiple levels in both cervical and lumbar regions which have dramatic impact on my severe foraminal stenosis of my verterbrae ……if and when surgery is ever done , I have a 44% + chance of becoming unable to walk at all and within my neck….possible permanent brace required…

    So don’t any of u get electrocuted and thrown 10 feet to a concrete floor ….the original injury….

    So, I may not have great quality of life right now ,and these past years, along with serious insomnia – which is the devil’s hand in making things worse, I can still hold my little angels hand and go for a short walk and share all her dreams and hopes and protect her like a father should, I am blocking out the endgame to my afflictions as long as I possible can because the final result is more devastating than anyone cam ever imagine….and to top it off …I ALWAYS have rotten luck with every medical procedure or medicine….my human body, like so many others, doesnt NOT want to be messed around unnaturally with….and yes I have tried and endured all other options over these years….

    Love all of u !!!

            She had just turned 3 months and those first 90 days was not so good as u know…she was just so sickly and unable to put on weight and than …this huge smile came out of nowhere and the rest is history- never a problem……she’s 4 1/2 now and taken the world by stage as u seen in her last dance recital … This pic means so much to us…….
            It really really does…

      Dear Darren, I wondered what your original injury was. That is shitty luck. My brother fell off a stool and broke his elbow and got a staph infection and has endured 4 years of non stop operations and antibiotics. It has ruined his life. Happiness hangs on a thread for us. I am glad you still have a positive attitude and passion for things eg Steve’s music. I am happy that Australia is moving forward in the liberty stakes. One state of ours, Tasmania is pushing for same sex marriage to be legal. I cannot believe in this day and age, that such anachronisms still exist! Also, Tasmania is in the forefront to ban cage eggs and sow stalls. These are the things that matter to me! (thank you Steve) x

        I was working as an Electricial Specialist for a vendor company that serviced and trained employees and their electrical departments for a large nationwide home improvement company. Two weeks after a grand opening of a new store , I was called in to investigate a shortage occurring in one of their large outdoor lighting displays…it was early before the store opened – I , along with their upper management switched off the breakers and I was up on a large ladder at 10 feet high – and as I reached out to support myself I touched a display that wasnt built correctly (no individual ground) and I absorbed a large electrical shock and was knocked down the steps of the ladder to a cement floor, unconscious and alone for 5 minutes…my lumbar spine was injured…no one noticed that my cervical spine also was injured til a year later from another test (super negligence)…I did everything in my power to return to work and underwent therapy and multiple injections into my spine…only to eventually return to work…last about a month…my back and body gave out…and the company I worked very hard for quite some time terminated me with no cause…Yes, I litigated and won major settlements from my employer, the home improvement company, the manufacture of the display, and the multiple medical doctors and hospitals that severely missed my stenosis which was allowed to progress unnaturally to a degree of severe disability and all their COUNTLESS MISTAKES…my family and I have been compensated greatly from what happened to me but I will never be able to work again, walk-sit-stand-sleep-any physical activity including LOVE without acute pain…I really miss coaching Basketball for Chicago Public Inner City Schools where I worked for over 7 years to help young men and women graduate and learn the importance of healthy competition…my last team went undefeated 18-0 for the entire season (3 young men play College basketball), that was just a month before my accident…of course dealing and living with all this pain…I was diagnosed with Severe Major Depression w/ Acute Panic and Anxiety disorder…when my pain levels change- I cannot process stress like everyone else does their best to – I panic and everything just worsens…and I am EXTREMELY allergic (toxic-deadly) to ALL Psycotropic medications…10 drug trials – one ending in a 28 day in-patient hospital stay (2009 – lost 33 pounds in just 4 weeks-stupid asswholes)…that was the nightmare I live with PTSD from being ECTd 5 times in 10 days without proper legal consent, I just finished litigation against those QUACK doctors – the spineless fuckers settled…

        If you knew me one day prior to that unfortunate accident and the hell my life has rollercoasterd thru since April of 2006…you would never ever guess that this could happen to me…and if ur wondering how switching off the breakers in the store resulted in my accident, some stupid ass ran another conduit line to the display without consent…no one knew (including me) that there was live power in that one specific display…

        Just a living nightmare…oh well…I try my best every day just to stay on this Earth…

        SAME SEX MARRIAGE MUST HAPPEN NOW !!! My beautiful sister-in-law is in an incredible loving and lasting relationship ,but cannot share the equality that they so rightfully deserve !!!!!!

            the ‘love you woman’ comment was intended for my pal linjo!
            but i guess it should also go out to bec,holly,mallory,donna,veleska,kat and of course to kate who’s no doubt reading this from up there in the clouds…..

    At this point, and this comment might be a bit out of subject with this blog: I’d really LOVE to call you, Steven, except that…. I don’t have your phone number!
    If some assholes are still poisoning you, I’m sorry. Years ago, even Céline didn’t have your phone number (and where is she, now?!). I NEVER gave your phone number to nobody. How some people are doing things by being forceful still amazes me…
    And about many other things: Half-here. Half-absent. Half-true. Half-virtual.

    Totally unconneccted to your blog entry, but I’m REALLY digging Egyptian register. Very cool (as ever). This is GREAT soundtrack music for a film that hasn’t been filmed yet. Someone needs to listen to this and THEN create the story from it.

    Been up in my own stuff lately…media arts school is the best thing I have ever experienced…

    Short, cheap (if $6K is cheap) and cheerful, it’s opened my mind and heart and soul to everything I’ve ever wanted. Every day there is a sweet day. I have never felt so…HOME.

    Life has so many freaking demands, and whether we have choices (me) or not (Daz), is just a roll of the dice. Darrin, I think about you all the time and pray so much for your healing. You always believed in me, even when I was just a self-pitying drunk. Thank you…I really hope that the karma comes back to you.

    And SK…it is so wonderful to read you feeling joy. (Thank you too for the anti-booze stuff, that did really help). I am looking forward to some JOYFUL projects from you, mister… maybe featuring kittens or puppies or something…take some time off from the deep shit for a few…you know it’ll always be there, waiting…
