The Art of Showing Up:
From NYC to Colorado to Miami. Now flying back to New York and I’m excited to be back home. In my familiar bed. With my familiar tools and gadgets. At the same I will miss the warm Miami Beach weather.
But I don’t have to miss the vip access to art and music. I don’t have to miss networking and giving out hundreds of cards of my music and mission. I don’t have to miss the magic and mystery of just showing up. Why? Because traveling refreshes my experience of where I currently live and reminds me that all of this is available. Especially in NYC.
Traveling makes the familiar new and exciting again. It also gives me a sense of what I actually need in life. Being that I pack 2 carry on bags with as much as a can and leave everything else behind for weeks at a time. I connected with tons of amazing people. One person that I gave my card to went on my site and saw that I teach ableton live. He reached out the next day to have me stop by and give them a lesson before I left town. Ran into nyc sk8 crew and skated all through the town and through all the major art basel galleries, events and parties.
I even snuck into a private beach party attended by Russell Simmons (who always is a very odd guy for me to try to communicate with), Miguel and Rosario Dawson. Played 2 gigs that were booked only 2 – 3 days before. And got to connect deep with the transformational culture at Moksha Art Gallery and through out Miami. So much magic in showing up.
Not only showing up, but having your service clearly defined and ready to offer. Showing up with a way for every person you meet on or off stage to stay connected. This is my plan for Europe Tour in February. Showing up with clear offerings. Seeing where they fit. Planning but playing with improvisation and being led by spirit. Maybe my writing inspires you to be in the journey and get out there with what you have and just see what happens. So much on the way.. so much here and now.
Blessings and Love
