Some nonsense......

Last night I went to see an incredible piano performance at the City Recital Hall. Two wonderful musicians playing together in a beautiful space, creating what I can only describe as sound for the soul. It's nothing but inspiring to hear music like this performed live, to see the faces, the fingers, the smiles, the light in the eyes of the performers that says, "I'm totally diggin this, life is good". I left invigorated, walking home through the city in the cool night feeling like I could do anything.

Today that feeling remains as a quiet hum and I'm musing on what exactly happened there in that acoustically perfect room. Was it the sake with dinner before the show, the air conditioned relief from the sticky streets, or the opportunity to watch two dudes do what they love with such passion, lightness and love? Maybe it was the music, damn that music was good. Whatever it was it got me thinking about life and the road that I'm on, how I got here and where I'm headed. I fantasize a fair bit about where I'm headed, some might call this daydreaming I like to think of it more as positive affirmations, not the manifest a car park, borderline loopy affirmations, more like............ ok ok it's mainly daydreams.

So what am I trying to say here, I'm inspired, inspired to create a life of daydreams, inspired to keep on keeping on, to see this road and all it's twists and turns. Life isn't about a number on a scale, yet it is about being who you want to be, and with some focus, practice and dedication I too can be like the two dudes bashin on the keys thinking... damn life is good.

"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities".
