Week 23 6/14/2020

Always forward.


That which has been possible in the past remains viable moving ahead, but it is necessary to engage foresight rather than cling to infantile idea and emotion.

Week 22 5/31/20

Foresight demands contemplation as well as action.

That which is empty overcomes that which is full, and there is always a place for happiness and diversion.

Week 21 5/24/20

Cultural reforms must cross all boundaries.

Both the Fine Arts and the Popular Arts must be addressed if they are to move in culturally viable directions.  This includes all perspectives-- artistic, religious, social, historical, ad infinitum.


A new sound composition is in development.

Week 20 5/17 20

Academic fields are fraught with both absurdity and a kind of spurious gravity.

As there are opportunities to move beyond these limits they should be taken, but first they must be discovered.  It is necessary to carry on the search until there is change.  

Real change.

Week 19 5/10/20

As artists let us resolve to elevate our thinking:

In doing so let us align our emotional perspectives with reality, share all that which is good, and strive for excellence in every way.

Week 17 4/26/20

Repetition dulls sensory awareness.

In trying times, faith and love carry the day. Expand your thinking.

Sunday, April 19, 2020

Week 16 4/19/20

Where there is wisdom, let it be shared.

Where wisdom is missing, let it be sought by every right means.  This is understanding of life, and of culture.

Sunday, April 12, 2020

Week 15 4/12/20

What one may experience, one may more honestly express.

Even the infinite may be grasped within limits, and thus given form.

Happy Easter.

Sunday, March 22, 2020

Week 12 3/22/2020

Events conspire.

The casual reader comprehends, and within our understanding is the notion that some perceive on a broad scale and others within narrow confines. 

Sunday, March 15, 2020

Week 11 3/15/20

Through virtue, perception.

In practice, elevated expression.  This is a quest, and a goal of any art.

Sunday, March 08, 2020

Week 10 3/8/2020

Expand your thinking.

Music and culture merge in expression of life experience. Ideas must be realized in action.

Sunday, February 23, 2020

Week 8 2/23/2020

Challenge what is presented as "reality".

In living memory the arts were without fear, and by virtue of this they were free, and freedom of thought was not suppressed by cultural forces as it is now.  Challenge the accepted to bring change.

Sunday, February 16, 2020

Week 7 2/16/20

Belief shapes perception, each influencing and directing the other.

Thus creative thought is constructive, oriented through foresight gained by continual effort.

Consider outcomes and move toward them.

Sunday, February 09, 2020

Week 6 2/9/20

Vision centers consciousness, and expands both.

Observe cultures that are unified by shared visions, in contrast with those that fail.

Sunday, February 02, 2020

Week 5 2/2/20

Expression is representation.

Grasp the real, give freely of the truth.

Sunday, January 26, 2020

Week 4 1/26/20

Cycles are continuous, and dynamic.

Things move ahead, go far afield, and return to their origins.

This is a truth of life, and of art.

Sunday, January 19, 2020

Week 3 1/19/20

Choose to move forward.

Advance in idea and in action. This is an individual choice, with rewards and consequences.

Sunday, January 12, 2020

Week 2 1/12/2020

Real individual freedom demands discipline and a sense of duty to last beyond the mere moment.

The artist must transcend those things that culture and society refuse to move beyond.  False values, collective conformity, failed philosophies-- all these are obstacles that must be overcome.
