One of my professors gave me this sticker the other day and said that he had had it for a while and thought of me when he found it again!😊 I 100% cried a bit in front of him when he gave it to me #touched#nonbinary#whatalovelyman
There are oils in the house of the wise and pink in the home of those that support and have been affected by breast cancer.
Everyone in this world has been touched by someone that has cancer. It has hit close to home on more than one occasion in our house.

How fitting is it that all the oils that support everything this mama needs are in little pink bottles?
This week marks a year since I released my first official esoteric ambient music EP 'Dreams In Polyphony Volume 1", a series of music works capturing in almost real time, the sonic landscape of my own lucid dreams.
This week, I will focus on the sonic landscape of each of the six works on the EP, the story behind them and how they came into the world (go to the link in my bio to hear each track from the work. Or search "the modern ritual SoundCloud").
It's almost impossible to begin to describe the process of this EP in a simple yet conscice way for Instagram. But what I have learned is the real proof of knowing something comes down to be able to explain it simply.
So for this post, go to the track called "Bodhichitta" put it on in the background and we can start there.
Our dreams are almost the final frontier for us as a species. So much we know about in our physical realm, scientifically, but yet dreams are the inalienable mystery. And as soon as we have them, they dissapear.
So I thought, how can I capture them? What is the most efficient way for me to contain the feeling, mood and content of a dream?
I set up a system using a singular analog synthesizer with direct recording facilities, and I would wake up, still with the mood fresh from a lucid dream, rush over to the synth half asleep and begin programming the sound directly into the interface that accurately reflected the 'sonic environment'.
For this piece, Bodhichitta; I had a pure, clear dream when I was in the realm of the Devas (heavenly beings in the Buddhist tradition). There was an overwhelming feeling of softeness and openness of my heart. I was in pure peace and security in the realm of these angelic beings. They floated over me serenely and with great love. But there was an almost inalienable sadness to what they were doing, and this reflects in the shift from major to minor keys in this work. It was peaceful and lulling, but it was like all of the devas in the realm were sad that they could not experience the beauty' of suffering/love/heartbreak in the human realm.
