It’s been a while since I’ve blogged a ramble, dear friends, and this is just a quickie. The link below is a video that I’d forgotten about from our first bathroom skate-dance shoot but found today and posted on YouTube & Facebook. I’m not lip-syncing to one of my tunes, just dancing to one of my all time favorites, the Boyz II Men version of the Isley Brothers classic. No matter the artist, it always grooves me into a little piece of heaven… for the love of you.

WHY WE EXIST

What?!?!? Am I really going there? Well, I can’t help it, dammit. My new facebook friend, Martin Olson, friend of old friend, Danny Jacob, asks the question on his wild & wonderful website, and I had the unmitigated chutzpah to respond that I knew why. But it’s probably much less about chutzpah and more about my very simplistic philosophy. After years of being “gently nudged” & “whacked on the head,” as Martin says, and really trying to pay attention, this is my existential belief:

We are here to love, create & evolve, probably in that order. We have a responsibility as creatures of intellect & emotion to do those things. And according to my ill-defined theory of reincarnation, we get plenty of chances to do it right & well until we get it really right and then…

The night before my dad died (9/11/00), I looked up at a little page a day calendar on my desk shelf and the quote of the day was from the poet Rumi. “When I die I shall soar with the angels and when I die with the angels, what I shall become you cannot imagine.”

More than that, we’ll have to talk.
