In humble acknowledgment of 100 posts, I give to you this art show, humbly titled Revelation 23.
These are arranged in a specific way with intention. They are ordered by me to tell you my story. What do you see? Tell me your story...

Synaesthesia--from the Greek syn, for together, and aisthesis, to perceive--generated a wave of scientific and popular interest around the turn of the twentieth century. Russian composer Alexander Scriabin, himself a synesthete, featured an organ that produced multihued light beams in his symphony Prometheus, the Poem of Fire. To many fin de siecle Romantics, synesthetes appeared to be humanity's spiritual vanguard, closer to God than the sense-segregated masses. "Such highly sensitive people," wrote Wassily Kandinsky, the Russian abstract artist, "are like good, much-played violins, which vibrate in all their parts and fibers at every touch of the bow."

This week has been full. Full of life, full of art, full of love and full of progress. We are moving forward. The highlights: Pearl Jam show with my little bro Adam (coincidentally the same Adam that went with me to see U2 / Pearl Jam in Hawaii), a fired up meeting with a forward thinking web company about the future of music distribution and the future of MAE, there was an uplifting hour-long interview yesterday with Relevant Magazine, a great lyric writing session for the new MAE music, a ten hour hang yesterday with a forward thinking music based charity called Love Gives, and a confirmation of the next recording sessions in July.
The next year and a half is starting to shape up and I am buzzing with anticipation. The great experiment is going to begin soon and you are all invited to participate. In fact, without your participation there is nothing. You are the necessary catalyst for the future of MAE. Details will follow soon...

A good traveler has no fixed plans
and is not intent upon arriving.
A good artist lets his intuition
lead him wherever it wants.
A god scientist has freed himself of concepts
and keeps his mind open to what is.

Thus the Master is available to all people
and doesn't reject anyone.
He is ready to use all situations
and doesn't waste anything.
This is called embodying the light.

What is a good man but a bad man's teacher?
What is a bad man but a good man's job?
If you don't understand this, you will get lost,
however intelligent you are.
It is the great secret.

1. The family tree. Today my Mom's family gathered from various parts of the world to celebrate my Grandmother's 80th birthday. She asked for a picture of all the cousins in a tree and this is us getting ready for that shot. We had a lovely afternoon at the Yorktown beach and park.
2. My little brother David has made a new friend.
3. Friend.
4. A storm moves in and threatens the fun.
5. Everyone leaves happy and dry; including our new friend.

1. I had the privilege of signing the American Cancer Society bus this past week at an event in Virginia Beach.
