"Am I saying too much to a student? No, I'm saying it to you." -- Doc

Perhaps each place we go is its own little life. Perhaps in each place we make our own heavens. Perhaps in some moments I understand the bittersweetness of this living thing.

Today intermittently rough and wonderful (by turns).

Saw some Brazilian percussionists at the Artisan tonight.

I think that is all I will say for now.

Yes. It's the connection between the little lives/heavens, though that stumps me ...

Yay for percussionists, though :-D :-[

It's because an earthly heaven is (as yet) a contradiction in terms - things move and the circumstances that make them appear so shift and the picture disintegrates. And getting kicked out of paradise (to be candid) blows goats.

No offense to Frank of course.

If I think of anything more clever, I'll post it. :p

getting kicked out of paradise (to be candid) blows goats.

No, that *is* clever--it's absolutely right.

And tell me about it paradise with percussionists no less ... I can't decide if that's another story or not :-/ ;)

So far divorced in my mind were the Brazilian percussionists and the making-our-own-heavens that I only just now figured what you were talking about.

I don't know (when I find a little heaven of my own) that it is so much a place or the people there, but the way I experience them - a perfect clarity of thought and feeling, everything working together (regardless of how it looks at the time.)

It's probably mildly heretical of me, but sometimes I wonder if Heaven (the real one) is where we get to experience our whole lives over with that clarity the whole time.

Actually, it's borderline Buddhist, isn't it? Creating nirvana through mindfulness and abandoning desire. (Only you can [must] achieve nirvana while you're still alive.)

I begin to wonder whether I should repair to the Soapbox with these new revelations in tow.

::blushes:: That's just my peculiar mentionitis purgatory kicking in--no worries ;)

Wow. I don't think about heaven enough, or maybe I don't want to re-experience my life very much (:-/)--but I always think of clarity or up-on-the-seamsness as being temporal phenomena that I'm not going to need anymore when I'm there ... maybe???

Depends if that would mean you stopped posting. That would be a loss ;)



















Thanks :)


Don't know if I did clarity much justice by my explanation of it.

Those moments of revelation, of understanding - of not only hearing the music of the spheres, but understanding its mechanism, seeing the hallmarks, the fingerprints of the good Creator ... those are the sweetest moments I know.

While I may post in the 'Box I certainly would not do it to the exclusion of the LJ. Things just move around too much :P
