Yeah, you heard me. “Edge you!” You guys know what I’m tellin’ ya here. For all the bullshit commentary left in sacks at the bottom of my last post I ask: “what the hell did you think you were reading? Didja not see any of the beauty? Did you not catch anything in those myopic sieves of yours? And you! The Right Rev. RCoyne! Man, don’t do me like that.”
[Yo! Lunchbox! Have we weened the audience yet? “no, I did not just call them wienies. lift your head a little bit more. yeah, chin horizontal like“.]
Writing is an art and like any art is open to interpretation. Having said that, art requires imagination. It requires stepping outside the pre-printed boundary lines and walking blindly into something that could be. Yes, I am getting all clarklike, but “edge you”, that’s your problem. Should I try and s-p-e-l-l it out? You know, about how something small can be huge, significant but not significant…be a thing that only imagination can show us.
To be honest, I put the Guru video in the last post strictly because I have always loved that song and was thinking of it that day. No heavy duty significance – just a cool song. There’s an easy going beauty about it- “seamless”. The bass “riff” is consistent, solid, pervasive and totally completes the song. Nothing flashy. In writing the last paragraph of that post I was able to say what I was struggling to express. A simple concept holding a beauty all its own.
” All the while we struggle with challenging what is, we begin to build a foundation upon which to lay a life riff so seamless, so perfect it goes completely unnoticed as anything but part of what has always been.”
Lighten up people. Lighten up…..
