How much do we truly see? How much slips past our observation capabilities as our brains ponder the incessant details of life? Sometimes it is only when I head out into the world with a camera strapped to my body that I see fully and witness the angles and curves and light patterns around me. It astonishes me to watch new babies as they observe the world around them. They see nothing through the lens of concept. Sometimes it is in using the tools of art (and music) that I am granted that state again, even if it only for fleeting instants.
On a side note, we had another wonderful rehearsal for our upcoming Valentine’s Day weekend show at Kripalu (Saturday, February 13th). Check out our facebook invite:
