What to say? Hanging late night @justinesbrasserie (where www.djangofestaustin.com is in Sept). For me the main reason to practice music is because of the conduits and relationships it provides both intuitively through itself, and externally as a bridge to/through others. Playing a new (to me) tune w/my my dear brother Ben Powell. What else is there? ..Just Because #stepanegrappelli #djangoreinhardt #yogaeverywhere #breathoflife #djangofest #djangofestaustin #austinmusic #austin #meditation #swingmusic #melody #violinist #duo

A snippet of my arrangement of Clair De Lune in the orgimal key, which for what its worth i think is important.(guitar arrangements are usually changed make pieces easier & more practical to play) Yes, there is still a place in this world for earnest practice. I find meaning in the revelation that only intentional & conscious repetition can provide....Just Because. #debussy #sologuitar #classicalmusic #practice #masterpiece #empathy #musicislove #yogaeverywhere #iam #analog #training #breathoflife #art #beauty #guitar #jazz #yoga #nowness #nuance

Throwback pic Nov 17: The glacial ice waters of the Himalayas. Since I was a teenager I have sought out natures solace & tranquility The space she provides between sometimes painful extremes. It is a great gift to me that i can sometimes share these practices with my true family. Behind the identity crisis of the voluntarily physical discomfort (a privileged choice of participation very different than pain imposed through birth/environment) there is a wealth of information both physically & psychosomatically that can lead to an authentic and direct experience of meditation. Overcoming fear of pain is the first step towards the practice of meditation. Sitting in ice water should not be sold as the latest new method in gym/yoga branding. It is not only a healing practice on a physiological level but has for eons been used as a useful tool in learning pranayama & meditation. Creation, preservation & destruction..life's inescapable trinity. Pleasure and pain are the mother and father of peace, and it is through the reconciliation of these seeming opposites that the breath of life is revealed. #yogaeveryday #meditation #pranayama #icewater #mountainphotography #creation #preservation #destruction #asana #breathoflife #allisone #ganga #monastery #himalayas #nepal #india #tibet #mantra #yantra #tantra

I am just now perusing all the pics from the last India/Nepal trip. Thanks to BenPowell & Kenmar...The documentation is a first for me in decades of travel and I am humbled scrolling through..seeing the images manifest & separate from my own minds-eye. Not different than a melody or song that has taken birth and was recorded or “captured”. This was about a week into a trek in Nepal near the Tibet border @ 8000ft.The beautiful Grandma had come at sunrise to see the reigons doctor who visits every few weeks but had not made it for his visit. Brother Kenmar is our own traveling Doc & was able to give her some anti-inflammatory tablets for severe pain in her neck and shoulders from a lifetime of carrying heavy loads up very narrow, rocky and steep paths. The interaction reminded us what true dignity and beauty looks like..Thank you Ma for your blessing #yoga #yogaeverywhere #spirit #nepal #himalayas #mountainphotography #photographer #monastery #buddhism #tantrayoga #pantajali #trekking #allareone #indigenouswomen #gratitude @kenmarzipan #musicislife #musicislove #consciousness #meditation

Saturday mornings with Scrappelli. Mathew “soft shoes” Shields on the plank. The marriage of song and dance used to be an expected part of live entertainment (as opposed to canned playbacks,live karaoke (most pop music), & DJ-ing). The energy and vulnerability of sharing the hard earned expressions of playing an instrument/dancing can be forgotten but but replaced. I am honored to meet and connect with fellow #musicians #yogis #empaths who act as conduits of light and love through the sharing of their practice. Thank You Austin for still having some pockets/people #singing & #dancing @hyperfeet @tdcrail @johnnyringo709 @ragtime_willie #substanceoverimage #sammydavisjr #deanmartin #franksinatra #songanddance #broadway #musicals #yogaeverywhere #tapdancer #swingdancing @the_savionglover #jazz #livemusicaustin #celebratelife #gypsyjazz #gypsyjazzguitar #grappelli #djangoreinhardt @woody_allen_instagram #woodyallen

Brother @ragtime_willie offered me a beautiful listening party of this orginal 1927 record pressing of Washington Phillips “What are They Doing in Heaven Today”. Phillips was a farmer who drove from town to town on his mule cart with a homemade dulcimer type instrument (Zithar) preaching and singing. Hearing this gave me chills and brought tears to my eyes. The transparency, resonance, and honesty of his voice and spirit. This is humanity at its purest. It is easy to be a human being but rare to imbibe human-beingness...Thank you #washingtonphillips for life #blues #gospelmusic #rootsmusic #humanity #humanbeingness #dignity #courage #realyogi #audiophile #78records #soulmusic #vulnerability #empaths #vintage #hereandnow #consciousness #spirit #openheart #grammys #yogaeverywhere
