The Invitation

Posted by on Jan 24, 2020 in Audio, Events, News, Poetry, Soul Biographies Experience

It’s 2am. You’re wide awake.
Feeling alone. Unseen.
And inexplicably lost.

Discontent despite all
that you have around you.

The people. Your life.
Your dreams.

You wear a face that tells
the world you’re OK,
but you’re not.
You’re bone achingly tired
from the relentless
game of belonging …

I’m in a suburb. Perfectly symmetrical, perfectly safe.

A Question to Hold Perpetually Close

Posted by on May 25, 2019 in Audio, Films

I made this 4-minute film a few years ago for a movement within Hollywood seeking to change Hollywood and provoke a conscious lighting strike to the system from within the system.

This Is Why Film Subjects Show Up As They Do

A few months back I was interviewed by Mary Alice Arthur as a part of the STORY THE FUTURE Project. I was subsequently told by someone who had studied the Inner View Method with me, that I really ought to listen back to it as my words articulated exactly what is going on with the camera and awareness. It concerns surrender.

So I did, and if you are drawn to understanding this way of seeing (how and why film subjects show up like they do in Soul Biographies) then bathe yourself in this audio interview. It is 42 minutes long, so find your time. Listen between the words. Even beyond the words …

Presence Before the Story

The words that people say are pretty much insignificant when set next to how they are. This is important to understand if one is to catch the ‘stories’ of this human race. An AUDIO FILM …

For Those With Insomnia

Posted by on Mar 5, 2016 in Audio, Guitar

I often just start playing (the guitar) with no idea where to go. This afternoon I restrung the guitar and this is where I went. One track, one take. Kind of thing I play to the kids at bedtime.

It was suggested by some that this is useful to listen to when attempting to fall asleep.
