Of boxes and taut strings….

October 16, 2013



Back in Bangalore, with a trove of pictures, but first on, wanted to share these two small vignettes of playing for an interesting, appreciative audience two nights ago…..


The juju was strong and I felt the force… ;-0

very key weeks coming up here all around us. I feel the urge to leave India for a while. Everything here is pulling down, down, drowned in telivision lie-nets….

In the us of a, the shut-down drama continues, in the middle east, people continue to die to fulfill the bizarre dreams and machinations of someone clearly de-ranged.


Pondering the ephemeral nature of it all, so strange that a nation is a nay-shun and a state is just a condition of being, temporary.

We are witnessing the forced take-down of what we have been most closely tied to these past 150 years, our nation-hood.

Patriotism and matriotism, in the blender and down the drain. Failed stats abound and why not, for all they are/were are experiments in the efficient control of chattel, no better or worse than human cattle…

The Pen (are you feeling pen-t up?, is the horse in it’s pen?) IS mightier than the sword.

If you cannot break out, break in…..there is a side door in that tunnel.

Hugs all around….

    “If you cannot break out, break in…..”

    Love that Vivek! So true, and possible. A good option (the only option at this point in time?) that I am pursuing.

    The magical juju force of creativity being shared in a live experience is the other thing keeping me going… glad we can at least share ‘live’ with each other through the internets….

      🙂 I really liked the one where you had one or more of your teachers in the audience…I’ve been meaning to get on stage a lot more now. Organically, we shall roar 🙂

        Which was that Vivek? I’m not sure what you mean…. 🙂

          You, in the town you grew up, some sweet older ladies in the audience, your tribute poem to Neil, beautiful background….that one…

        Oh yes, i see. That was from my very first LUMINOSITY in July, which is the solo improvisational dance and spoken word show I have developed, and have since done 6 times already! I am totally loving this new format and I know it will only continue to grow and develop.

        Here is a video clip from my latest one:

    Batten the hatches, there is a storm coming. 🙂

      What do you really think Dub? Which is it? Planet X? I had to take a couple of grains of NaCl with that one. I think the END is a fantasy, this daily journey of unfoldment and enfoldment is the only reality. If Herr Oclobus comes, I shall give it a polite finger 😉

    You rock Vivek! Thank you for your help and prose in everything.

      🙂 Appreciate the appreciation CPL. I’ve been off-line for the past three weeks, crashed laptops, total mercury retrograde action…. A pre-feel of the coming EMP event? Stay hardened 😉

    your music so beautiful. a slow trance that makes me think of leaves twisting in the wind or ripples upon smooth water. my question though is what sort of tuning you use on the guitar?

      Grazzi Trill 🙂 since you are a musician, you could probably tell it is an open tuning, like the Sitar….DAADAD… Simple eh?
