I studied Buddhism a lot when I was younger and was always fascinated by the Buddhist koans. Short poems made to short circuit the logical mind and open an opportunity to experience an enlightened state. Much of my interest in music and art stems from this same idea. Essentially to bypass the gatekeeper in my head. This piece is from a new series in progress. I’m still working out exactly where it’s going. This is the my favorite part of the process. There is a path ahead, but I’m not sure where it’s exactly going yet.

THOUGHTS FROM THE CREATIVESPHERE
"It’s human desire to be understood. And we always feel we’re not understood."

To move forward
Nature hates a void

I created this piece of art as a tribute to one of my favorite comedians, and host of two of my favorite shows, “The Colbert Report” and “Late Night with Stephen Colbert.” I used roofing cement, chewed bubblegum, acrylic paint, plexiglass and 8 pints of his Ben and Jerry’s ice cream flavor, Americone Dream.
He truly is “The Originalist.” Cheers Stephen! You’re making a difference in this world.

My special day
And filed in a drawer
With the others
As the years pass
My cabinet is getting more full
Watching fireworks at Disneyland
A surprise party at my parents house
A concert I performed in Chicago
The song my wife wrote and sang to me in the mountains
Each one a special kind of special [Read more…] about A Birthday Vigil
Lying on the beach
Under the sun
Just letting its rays
Have their way with me
Maybe a gentle breeze
To keep me cool
While I’m being warmed on the inside
Nowhere to be
No one to answer to
A moment like this
Only happens in my mind
