You've got to fight – and party – for your mind.
Dear Reader, yours truly am a man of few words today. Here, out from under T.S. Lee [Allen] all is cool... almost calm, and necessarily collected. Labor Day '11... so far, so wet... and not as wild as one would expect.
Honestly, I feel more threatened by the storms of “Peak-Media-Season '11” than by any force of nature. In previous years' posts, I've noted the manifestations of a Jazz life in the balance of 8/29 and 9/11. This span of 14 days each year measures out heavy doses of: memory and insight, conclusion and confusion.
Today, I declare self-defense against anyone's ideas of how I might best think or feel about these events of our collective history. And my own ideas had better get in shape as well. “We are making it all up!” I, some 15 years ago, proclaimed this in an original composition entitled, Neutral Observer. [The Veil, PSW 200]
Little then did I know. Dear Reader, I know, it's hard to imagine the truth. It requires a great deal of awareness just to get an inkling of how all human cause brings about all human effect. That we are in fact in a battle of consciousness, or a dance; both.
And I do submit gratitude. I hope that you continue to go on being effective at dealing with both.
Peace & Pops,
Maison Musique, New Orleans
