Jazzure Part 1  I love jazz because it speaks to my soul and never disappoints. The complexity and the improv mean that I never hear the same cut on an album or live performance of a piece the same way twice and it works my mind, body and soul. To me, listening to good jazz is akin to a healing meditation! I love jazz because of its ability to evoke such tremendous emotion... primarily joy! I love jazz because as it is such an interesting style of music which involves improvisation, solos, the interaction between musicians. I love jazz because... of it’s instant composing and rhytmic interesting character: jazz in all it’s different appearings is often able to enrich the very moment, the NOW. And that’s all we have, isn’t it? Jazz is a reflection of life. It is intellectually challenging, rewarding, frustrating, invigorating, fun.. In my studio I have a quote from Confucius, “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop”. Jazz is a journey that never reaches an end point for any player. It just continues. Jazz combines creativity from the mind, heart, and the gut. It flourishes through my truth and uses melody and rhythm to bridge the musician's creativity and the listener's imagination. I love jazz because it's an area of music where I am free to incorporate everything I've experienced in music, including multiple genres and global cultures, and creatively express myself as a composer and improviser. I play so much as do I express the various styles I've absorbed in a way that is honest and personal. As a Multi - instrumentalist it means I cover a lot of different sounds, and as a composer it means I draw on a lot of different influences quite freely. Part 1… more

The Way of The World Nature does not care about education, “high quality” offspring, college degrees, equal rights, cleanliness, sustainability, philosophy, or the environment. It cares about fertility and might, and the species or race that is most fertile and most powerful will be rewarded with the bounty that the Earth provides. The people who are able to take over the planet in sheer numbers, regardless of their intelligence or manners, will come to rule the world, just like how homo sapiens came to overrun the more intelligent Neanderthals by breeding at a far superior rate. The most intelligent race on the planet can use their smarts to fortify themselves in caves as the more numerous barbarians take over the planet, even if they’re nothing more than mindless zombies. So even if we solve all of the political problems of the day, and neutralize the most vulgar of our society, what are we left with? A shrinking population and citizens so atomized that they are even losing the ability to communicate with each other, who have to use computerized apps and alcohol to fornicate while the female is on sterility medication, which her parents awarded her upon turning 16 years old. Our punishment is coming. Lands of the West will be given away, and even if the barbarian horde can be beaten with technology, there will be a day where there’s man left to stand against them to push the kill button. The barbarians will inherit the new world until they become civilized themselves and the cycle renews once more, like it has many times in the past. Nature doesn’t care about your egalitarian laws or your superior IQ. It cares about reproduction and power, and what the barbarians lack in intelligence, they make up for in life energy. We are the anomalies, we are the mistakes, and unless we re-discover the ways of family, tradition, and being true to your Spirit, we must be ready to accept the inevitable end that it was us who become so weak as a people that we didn’t even bother having a gate, and that all the barbarians had to do was walk right in.… more

WHERE THE MIND IS WITHOUT FEAR AND THE HEAD IS HELD HIGH Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, where knowledge is free. Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls. Where words come out from the depth of truth, where tireless striving stretches its arms toward perfection. Where the clear stream of reason has not lost it's way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit. Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever widening thought and action. LET MY COUNTRY AWAKE!… more

RETURN OF THE KNIGHT  1. Solitude Create time alone with yourself. When seeking the wisdom and clarity of your own mind, silence is a helpful tool. The voice of our spirit is gentle and cannot be heard when it has to compete with others. Just as it is impossible to see your reflection in troubled water, so too is it with the soul. In silence, we can sense eternity sleeping inside us. 2. Humility Never announce that you are a knight, simply behave as one. You are better than no one, and no one is better than you. 3. Gratitude The only intelligent response to the ongoing gift of life is gratitude. For all that has been, a knight says, “Thank you.” For all that is to come, a knight says, “Yes!” 4. Pride Never pretend you are not a knight or attempt to diminish yourself because you deem it will make others more comfortable. We show others the most respect by offering the best of ourselves. 5. Cooperation Each one of us is walking our own road. We are born at specific times, in specific places, and our challenges are unique. As knights, understanding and respecting our distinctiveness is vital to our ability to harness our collective strength. The use of force may be necessary to protect in an emergency, but only justice, fairness, and cooperation can truly succeed in leading men. We must live and work together as brothers or perish together as fools. 6. Friendship The quality of your life will, to a large extent, be decided by with whom you elect to spend your time. 7. Forgiveness Those who cannot easily forgive will not collect many friends. Look for the best in others. 8. Honesty A dishonest tongue and a dishonest mind waste time, and therefore waste our lives. We are here to grow and the truth is the water, the light, and the soil from which we rise. The armor of falsehood is subtly wrought out of the darkness and hides us not only from others but from our own soul. 9. Courage Anything that gives light must endure burning. 10. Grace Grace is the ability to accept change. Be open and supple; the brittle break. 11. Patience There is no such thing as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. A hurried mind is an addled mind; it cannot see clearly or hear precisely; it sees what it wants to see, or hears what it is afraid to hear, and misses much. A knight makes time his ally. There is a moment for action, and with a clear mind that moment is obvious. 12. Justice There is only one thing for which a knight has no patience: injustice. Every true knight fights for human dignity at all times. 13. Generosity You were born owning nothing and with nothing you will pass out of this life. Be frugal and you can be generous. 14. Discipline In the field of battle, as in all things, you will perform as you practice. With practice, you build the road to accomplish your goals. Excellence lives in attention to detail. Give your all, all the time. Don’t save anything for the walk home.The better a knight prepares, the less willing he will be to surrender. 15. Dedication Ordinary effort, ordinary result. Take steps each day to better follow these rules. Luck is the residue of design. Be steadfast. The anvil outlasts the hammer. 16. Speech Do not speak ill of others. A knight does not spread news that he does not know to be certain, or condemn things that he does not understand. 17. Faith Sometimes to understand more, you need to know less. 18. Equality Every knight holds human equality as an unwavering truth. A knight is never present when men or women are being degraded or compromised in any way, because if a knight were present, those committing the hurtful acts or words would be made to stop. 19. Love Love is the end goal. It is the music of our lives. There is no obstacle that enough love cannot move. 20. Death Life is a long series of farewells; only the circumstances should surprise us. A knight concerns himself with gratitude for the life he has been given. He does not fear death, for the work one knight begins, others may finish.… more

Do you feel Small?  It happens to us All~~~~~~~~~ When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn’t change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family. Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could have changed the world. Or not...… more
