Je Retournerai

A stirring new song on the subject of birth and rebirth. (Tweaked the mix a bit for blog readers)

Je Retournerai

From earth to sky

From wind to clay

From north to south

From night to day

Je Retournerai

From down to up

From out to in

From life to life

From yang to yin

Je Retournerai

this transparent moment

behind the moonlit evening like sand

my heart moves from demonic to cordial.

the warmth of your body gives it honor

Lonely early light of day
cracks at the walls of my house
transparent leaves of ancient rotten clay.

Sometimes a piece of the wind
petrifies like a soul in my heart

Je Retournerai

From here to there

From bed to hearse

From wet to dry

From bad to worse

The Blue Sleep has arrived!

The Blue Sleep has arrived! My first studio album for 20 years, there in my hand, all recorded here in my wee home studio. Huzzah! A proud moment for your working boy, indeed.

Here I am, all these lifetimes later, in these unlikely times, this unlikely place,  poking a twig into the termite nest of the Tao like a chimpanzee. I pull it out to see what sticks, what to eat, what to discard. I pass it over to you. These days the music plays me, the songs a consequence, evidence of my passing through this valley, an echo of my delusions. Now we see it, hear it together, later it all vanishes. Exactly as it should.
