Skateboard & Guitar in Hand...Part 2


Since it's St. Valentine's Day, startin' with a love song (sort of) and in Southern California...where it all began...


SoCal Roots...



DEFYING GRAVITY...It ain't got a hold on me no more...






As we saw in Part 1 in Xavier Rudd's "Stoney Creek"...this fun's not just for guys...






In flight over the Valley...




Meanwhile, in South Carolina...


I first saw Trevor Hall live at Mulcahy's in Wantagh, NY and as I've followed his evolution, I continue to benefit from his musical and personal energy...

...His INK gives evidence...


When I think about all the other ways I could have played,

All the other simple moves I could have made,

All the other cards that I could have dealt,

All the books I didn't read upon my shelf,

All of the other ways I could have sung my songs,

Realized that none of it went wrong,

And it was all played.

How could it be any other way [x2]


Now that the chains are off I'm free to roam,

Everywhere I go, I feel like I'm home,

Nothing hides, everything is shown.





On his version of a go kart...SELF-Propelled...



And the "Coffee Bean" helps us motor thru life's ups and downs...



Keepin' it simple...Keepin' the child within us ALIVE...




In this next chapter, Trevor talks about his changing relationship to time and how ever so gradually, he's learning to see it through fresh perspectives. This insight was helped when his aging grandmother once said to him,


"Isn't time such a wonderful gift."


In the first 5 minutes of this video, he shares some powerful stories of HOW this is happening...

...Listen in to this musical philosopher...





Later...








Starting in England, this next musician's pilgrimage led him further...within and without...






This next image is very important in that Sam reminds us all that the way we can love one another directly depends on HOW we are loving ourselves...



All true spiritual movements have this at their core...










Here's a guy living in Paradise...in Hawaii...



First met Nahko a few years ago in NYC's Central Park at a Summerstage event. Lotsa fun!


Video shows us Trevor Hall B4 he had to cut his hair (see "You Can't Rush Your Healing" story and song above in the section dedicated to Trevor).


"Budding Trees"


In the moon of the budding trees

I was gifted new eyes to see

All of the shifting shape and ways you can be

Wake the dreams into realities

Wake the dreams into realities


Sunset diamonds trickle down our cheeks

The language of no words is how we speak

Pacha Mama spinning firelight

And a Little Bear singing by the fireside

Out of this city with the wind on our neck

That's us whistling upon your neck

Moonlit diamonds sparkle into my mouth

Feels like hunger and it tastes like salt

Feels like hunger and it tastes like salt


So, tap me out and tap me into you

Heal my brain and my body too

Balance my chemistry hydrate these cells

Cuz the body talks and the meditation helps

The body talks and meditation helps

The body talks and meditation helps


A little bit of cinnamon pours as we snoot

All up on my shit in the morning commute

Coastal quiver on a quest through the dunes

Sandy toes and bottomless curves of the moon

Heavy lifting for Pele's children

Hand of the goddess soaking cliffs keep building

Plate is full but appetite has dwindled

I feel a little sick so I keep the fire kindled


You the pillar steadfast light of bravery

And I the dimly burning candle still shaking

Riddled fear quiver my bones so easy!

Well, you're the guru now so visualize healing

Yeah, you're the guru now so visualize leaving


Let her go for she can no longer feed you

And many children need that mana creature

Just barely missed you I was finally ready!

But you are a long gone too much heavy history

Yeah you are a long gone too much heavy history

Let go of blame that shit will never serve me!

Bless other men investigate your mystery


So, tap me out and tap me into you

Heal my brain and my body too

Balance my chemistry hydrate these cells

Cuz the body talks and the meditation helps

The body talks and meditation helps

The body talks and meditation helps


Little spider weaves a wispy web

And stumbling through the woods it catches to my head

She crawls behind my ear and whispers secrets

Dragonfly wiz by and sings now teach it

Yeah, dragonfly wiz by and sings now teach it

Form on the trail I watch you head up mauka

I turn makai and whisper, "thank you sister"

Edge of the west where water touches land

You are the east with folded maps in hand

Time to increase my frequency!

Hands of light and bodies talking

Gimme some of that wild fox medicine!

But, keep me here in this wild present tense

Fully supported on new lovers chest

Dawning adventures sparkle get some rest!

Dawning adventures sparkle get some rest!


So, tap me out and tap me into you

Heal my brain and my body too

Balance my chemistry hydrate these cells

Cuz the body talks and the meditation helps

The body talks and meditation helps

The body talks and meditation helps



Sporting the Medicine Tribe's colors:



"Time to increase my frequency..."



 So, tap me out and tap me into you

 Heal my brain and my body too

 Balance my chemistry hydrate these cells

 Cuz the body talks and the meditation helps

 The body talks and meditation helps

 The body talks and meditation helps

The Wheel

Lyrics By: Robert Hunter Music By: Bill Kreutzmann


The wheel is turning and you can't slow down

You can't let go and you can't hold on

You can't go back and you can't stand still

If the thunder don't get you then the lightning will


Won't you try just a little bit harder

Couldn't you try just a little bit more

Won't you try just a little bit harder

Couldn't you try just a little bit more


Round, round, Robin run around

Gotta get back where you belong

Little bit harder, just a little bit more

Little bit further than you gone before


Small wheel turning by the fire and rod

Big wheel turning by the grace of God

Every time that wheel turn round

Bound to cover just a little more ground



For FURTHUR musings...
