the story of love is hello and goodbye…until we meet again”

Purple Haze, Revisited   1 comment

Katelyn Birthday Party

Purple Haze (September, 2009) — Computer Art by kenne

About the time
I’m feeling high
I start acting funny —
don’t know why

Today becomes tomorrow
Or is it the end of time
Soon to be floating in
An ocean of deathless life

Feeling gratitude for God’s gift
Awaking the soul
Becoming void as I was
When I was not yet

“Turn from gazing after”
To kiss the sky
Devoid of all
Foreign images

Only to be
Born again
From inside the outside
Looking in

Jimi had a spell
On his brain
Purple in color
Inspired by a haze

Deluded by doubt
“Am I happy or in misery?”
To be answered not in the words
But the color of the haze

Purple Haze all in my brain,
lately things don’t seem the same,
actin’ funny but I don’t know why
‘scuse me while I kiss the sky.

— from Purple Haze, by Jimi Hendrix

“We shall not cease from exploration,
and the end of all our exploring
will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time.”

Purple Haze

About the time
I’m feeling high
I start acting funny
But don’t know why

Today becomes the day after today
Or is it the end of time
Only to be floating in
An ocean of deathless life

Feeling gratitude for God’s gift
Awaking the soul
Becoming void as I was
When I was not yet

“Turn from gazing after”
To kiss the sky
Devoid of all
Foreign images 

Only to be
Born again
From inside the outside
Looking in 

Jimi had a spell
On his brain
Purple in color
Inspired by a haze

Deluded by doubt
“Am I happy or in misery?”
To be answered not in the words
But the color of the font

In a few more months, it will have been 21 years since the death of Stevie Ray Vaughn. In my book, he remains the greatest guitarist ever.

Traveling Companions At Our Driftwood Seventieth Wind-Turned Age   3 comments

Bob Dylan — Image by kenne

I am a child of the forties, a rebel of the fifties,
becoming a native of the sixties.
Each decade saw the influence of art;
not as the creator, but in me,
the person listening and seeing what the creator sent along.
Together we have traveled as companions,
moving along and being moved.

 Now, in my driftwood seventieth wind-turned age,*
“I am of the old and young, of the foolish as much as the wise.”**
An age whose troubadour companions have included:
Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Paul Simon, George Clinton, Paul McCartney,
Aretha Franklin, Carole King, Brian Wilson, Lou Reed, Jimi Hendrix and Jerry Garcia.
Whether a mere coincidence with others, I am ever grateful —
each having moved me to thought in the course of my daily life.

Often alone with my thoughts, each shaped by others in a sea of music,
I picture an image, one I might take with my camera.
Knowing the words and images don’t come out of nowhere,
but are the result of shared paths for my feet to use,
I always keep an eye on my traveling companions,
and people down the road who might bring a fresh breath of air,
making me younger than I am now – he said, pausing with reflection.

“May you stay forever young,

Forever young, forever young,

May you stay forever young.”***
