Ok, so various periods of radio silence have always been a feature of my interaction with the world — digital or analog. I’m sure it is no surprise that I will go long periods without doing or saying anything discernibly public and then have huge bursts of outflow, followed by the same silence. Those of you interested in the this adventure that I’m on will hopefully forgive me, as there is typically nothing negatively directed at you, whom I love dearly. I simply am one-track-minded and tend to retreat inside my own mind-space until I feel I’m ready to come out to say something. I realize now that this behavior has hampered my progress in some ways and made me isolated for my simple lack of followthrough, and recognition of the importance of others in my journey. This has been a particularly transformative time in my life and as I have been peeling away layer upon layer of self-deceit and childishness, I see this as an underlying current throughout my activities.
I won’t now pretend that I can change this on a whim or in a single, brief moment of clear-mindedness, but I thought that acknowledging it publicly might give me some small motivation of accountability and transparency, which is just as good for individuals as it is for government.
More to the actual point, I am desperate to feel my influence contribute to the world in a positive, lasting way, so staying inside my head will not be the path of art and healing that I wish to be on. Many possible paths have been laid out before me, each alluring in it’s own way, and in my industry, most are laden with the promise of Fame & Fortune. As I have examined the lives of those whose contribution to society impacted us the most, I realize that NONE of that was done through the vehicle of Fame & Fortune, which typically corrupts any further contribution once attained. People have made a lot of fuss over the years regarding my talents and the levels of “Stardom” achievable thru such talents, and for the most part I have enthusiastically bought in to the talk, but never been that happy about sacrificing my “Artistic Integrity” to truly pursue the “reality” talent shows, feeling a dual pride and guilt for making a show of trying, but hoping not to be chosen and thus involved and associated with the “debasement” of music culture. This type of fantastical notion — another deep-set feature of my personality — is a habit I am desperate to break, largely because I have come to realize that REALITY is more than expansive enough to accommodate my happiness and fulfillment.
What does all this BS mean? It means, as you might expect, that I am trying to guide my wanderings in a more direct, inclusive, artful and healing path. Your support and guidance is unbelievably appreciated and needed. That starts by sharing more and thinking less. I do entirely too much thinking and almost NO DOING! I’m afraid of many things, but none more than SUCCESS, because success means responsibility and followthrough. I hope you’ll reach out to me and ask: “So where’s that EP you’ve been promising?” “When are you coming to my town for a concert?” or whatever else you might have to say. It’s pretty easy to feel less than anonymous in this huge sea of idea producers, artists, entrepreneurs and other unclassifiable contributors to society.Comments
