For the ancestors

AKA the bath mantra. It’s a masterpiece. Written by Lord Krishna. Unfortunately, the music and translation are mine.

This next one is shorter, simpler.

Old friend

This song has meant different things to me over the years. I’ve been writing it slowly over the course of 20 years. Lately I would put Daniel as an inspiration but the old friend in the song is my own heart.

The something that’s coming is the present moment and it contains all possibilities.

This version doesn’t have the lyrics captions. I will post them here instead.

Old Friend

I saw an old friend I had not in years

In the hospital, for a moment or two

His voice was familiar, it came from my heart

As he spoke the words I am saying to you


There’s something that’s coming especially for you

It’s time to let go of your fear

Your expectations just hide it from view

It’s important you see what is happening here

You have nowhere to go, the highway moves for you

You don’t need to think about scenes that are gone

You don’t need to worry about what comes before you

Face straight ahead, mind the road that you’re on



And just in that moment I was whole

And deep in that wholeness I could see

That even though I was locked up in the hospital

Just in that moment I was free

When I opened my eyes I could tell he had been there

Like a scent far away or a sound very small

I don’t give a shit if anyone cares

But that’s what I’ve held on to in spite of it all

This song has a couple of origins.

There was a time, even before Andrew was born, when I felt like Erin and I were the two who would always be together.

During that time I had an actual dream where the two of us were the only people left on the planet.

My relationship with her mother was fraught, insecure and I secretly prayed we would find a way to split up with me keeping Erin. Though that didn’t come to pass until after Andrew was born, I always just assumed that Erin would always be there.

Then she wasn’t.

The other source is the Chronicles of Narnia. I loved reading those books and loved reading them to my kids. Erin was the first one to get that treatment. So all the imagery about the lion, creation and calling the stars home is from The Magician’s Nephew and The Last Battle.

This is the most positive of the many songs I’ve written about grief.

All the graphics were made by me using WomboDream, an AI illustration app.

Goat Buskers!

I ain’t ‘fraid of no goats.

I made these using starryai and the prompt “goats playing guitar on the street corner “ just to make the visual pun that sounds like Ghostbusters.

Gone beyond

My mantra memory was on the fritz. I spelled and pronounced in error. Gate gate pāragate pārasaṃgate bodhi svāhā. There should be no “A” sound before “paragate”. Sorry ’bout that.

Gate gate pāragate- Gone gone gone beyond

pārasaṃgate- Gone beyond beyond (gone even further or to the furthest)

Bodhi svaha!- Hail the goer! (or, Hail the awakened!)
