A Return to Life

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

There are so few things that are truly magical in this world. When time stops and your heart races, adrenaline and energy flows between so many people with innumerous emotions. After finding such a fulfilling endeavor, it is hard to live without it. In this techno world of instant gratification, constant commercial bombardment and the incessant money grabs of the modern media-crazed-corporate-theocracy, it’s easy to get distracted. It is easy to listen to the hype, the snake oil salesmen and the drug toting sleazes, that your creation is ready for the mass consumption of Frank Zappa’s infamous teenage material consuming “Debbie.”

Life throws in some turns. All of sudden, you hate it all: the scene, the work, the people, the “friends.” And what was once precious is gone, evaporated, dissolved.

Life can also throw you back on the path. Time off, reflection, reconnection. To go on without that pure and innocent energy would be folly. It’s the reason why amateur athletes and honest performers offer the most mind-blowing experiences because they lose themselves in the moment. Not in their stats or sales or reviews.

I will be picking up one of my greatest loves again. With the renewed energy and passion that existed before the wheeling and dealing, before the salesmen, and before the numbness.

Stay tuned.
