IN THE SNOW



the sun is gone, the moon is high
secrets of the night arrive


a three part mini-series
I N  T H E  S N O W

set vimeo player to 720p (lower right wheel)

sound up



IN THE SNOW
HOLD MY HAND
MAN UP



















every time I think of you
the rain falls from the sky 


optimized for night vision
a year later and still on point
scares me even more

silly shit

once referred to as my
'trajectory'
telling myself weeks ago
I was going to keep this up - 'festive'
and ... ya

It's just what I'm going through atm
thank you for your patience

joyeux noel friends

MARRY ME



happy holidays friends
December is wedding season 
in the Punjab


matrimony is the union of fear and fantasy
manifest in merriment
till death do us part

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind marry me


thinking why?
why make it about frikkin' God
what's the takeaway?

will the natural union 

between man & woman
be more sacred?  blessed?
a paradigm shift - dec 2008

3 months in India changes everything
diwali & wedding season, synchronizing
is something to see


beautiful thing, either way
you just need to see it
smell it


a religious experience









I will say this ... Punjabi weddings?
on a balmy fragrant early december evening? 
sun low in the sky 
the lights, the music

devotion in faith and still
very cool - and so
here we go, if it's fun?
then why not?

HEALER



"be faithful in small things
because it is in them - that your strength lies"

Mother Teresa



H E A L E R
  






 

it's an assumption


that fundamentally, we're all equal - embedded in the constitution
here in Canada especially - then there's "karma" 
then there's reality - the judgements - the walls of shame 
welcome to the fear factory - centuries of criminal behavior
 

conditionally condoned

adverse conditions creating chaos - abort alpha one charlie delta fox 
I'm going down - mayday - mayday - mayday
"requesting an emergency rescue evac - unknown co-ordinates 
on fire - crash and burn scenario subject seduction - with respect
just get your ass into the situation - now sir"

  I need a healer








"a man is but the product of his thoughts 
what he thinks, he becomes"

Mahatma Gandhi 


going down in flames
little chance of recovery
fading voices - shadowy shape shifters
downward spiral - blunt force - smoke - fire -
reverberation - condemnation into redemption

she lies next to me in silence - shields down - surrender 
darkened room - in port - docked - respite repair
only it's a haze - a dream - years ago with her
is this real

in our bedroom - early on

reaching over and touching my wounded shoulder during intimacy
when time stood still - before anything mattered - this
 a genuine gesture that feels good - caring
in war crimes - realizing time is short
in this moment - stillness

 
 



"you - are a healer", a simple acknowledgement 
spoken quietly in the presence of grace and humility
empathy - compassion - deliverance - she receives the message in form
no expectation - only loving, accepting resolve - nothing matters
only what is right here - right now ... you are everything
and you are nothing

"shhh - close your eyes now - sleep dear"


that caress along my receding hair line
that soft kiss on my cheek - drifting
into slumber  - ah
home 










"the wound ... is the place where the light enters you"

Rumi


no attachment - no shame - no pretension - no fallout - no "discussion"
no need to pretend and/or hide behind anything 
no cruel constructions  - no walls of blame - no borderlines
it's simple, I think - it's all about "listening" (not speaking)  
the truth ultimately unfolds in receiving information
taking it in gently










when she walks into a room  
my heart goes bing - bang - boom - "mommy"!
waking from a dream at 5am - heart pounding - so real OMG 
so right there - I could touch her - shivering shaking
I feel cold


we all are conditioned to give and take according to the plan
braised on high heat from the very beginning - barbecued chicken 
 deliciously sauced and served with a side of our choice 

 





for some it's religion - for others it's faith 
for others it's a simple good nights sleep
awakening into resolution and refreshment  
for me it's all of the above
I am thank-full - yes god - the affirmation
the adoration returning

thank you











H E A L E R




 
it doesn't matter who I am - or what I stand for
it's not about my conquests or my fears, regrets
accomplishments - mistakes
none of that

it's about my intention
in willingness to let go of everything
lose the baggage
ah

right here - right now
