#0824 Leon Bridges – River

“Even when a river of tears courses through this body, the flame of love cannot be quenched.” – Izumi Shikibu

Shades #6

“On the journey of the warrior-bodhisattva, the path goes down, not up, as if the mountain pointed toward the earth instead of the sky. Instead of transcending the suffering of all creatures, the warrior moves toward turbulence and doubt however they can. They explore the reality and unpredictability of insecurity and pain, and embrace it. If it takes years, if it takes lifetimes, the warrior lets it be as it is. At the bottom we discover water, the healing water of bodhichitta.

Bodhichitta is our heart—our wounded, softened heart. Right down there in the thick of things, we discover the love that will not die. This love is bodhichitta”. – Pema Chodron

Shades #4

“And some day there will be nothing left of everything that has twisted my life and grieved it and filled me so often with such anguish. Some day, with the last exhaustion, peace will come and the motherly earth will gather me back home. It won’t be the end of things, only a way of being born again, a bathing and a slumbering where the old and the withered sink down, where the young and new begin to breathe. Then, with other thoughts, I will walk along streets like these, and listen to streams, and overhear what the sky says in the evening, over and over and over.” – Hermann Hesse

Shades #1

EVERY August 30th-Sep 24th you can find me throwing down on themusicologist in memory of my daughter, (Until we meet again ConZu x)

Losing a loved one is hard, losing a child is almost unbearable.

In my experience all of the ‘basic emotions’ are involved;

Fear, Anger/Rage, Sadness/Grief, Joy, Disgust, Surprise, Trust, Love, Envy.

This imperious 2017 cut from the mighty Simon ‘Bonobo’ Green shines a light on the darkness in my soul and helps to soothe the savage beast. For ALL the children we have loved and lost……may you ALL rest in peace and find your ‘way’ through.
