Hangin’ Out With the King of Swing

That’s Krishna Das.  Played the Album, ‘Heart Full Of Soul’, got singing with the last two or three and wished I had started before.  Went on to put ‘Blues For Baba’ on a loop, thought I’d better take it off because I might be driving people mad but it was nice for me to have it on and do stuff with it.  Put the ‘Om Shri Matre Namah’ mantra on which I think is part of a free package on krishnadas.com these days (I had to pay for it.  I swear they were teasing me with the timing that they made it free!).  It is Krishna Das without music chanting Om Shri Matre Namah 108 times.  Only played a bit of that then decided to swap to ‘Namoh’ on ‘Trust In The Heart’ and was jamming to that and now it has moved on to other tracks on the album.  Loving jamming to KD this evening.  And I’ve heard some people here say they like my singing so that makes me feel good, too.  Let’s put some singing out there instead of people yelling.  It has to be better.  It certainly makes me feel better.  There is no one to one on the room opposite mine now so I have relative privacy and can relax with it more.  I find healing in singing and I hope those around me might, too.  Thank you, Krishna Das, for all the ways you have given yourself and your music to me.  Tonight your music is dancing my heart.

BTW, he is touring in the UK and Europe from June this year.  If I can afford it I’m going to follow him everywhere.  Check out his events page.

I am feeling exhausted today.  I was just lying on my bed with a few thoughts and situations going through my mind and my feelings going places they hadn’t before over some people, and letting my thoughts, especially my previous ones, be influenced by my feelings – hesitancy, nervousness, uncertainty about people I like and have wanted to be here for here.  I was beginning to wonder if I still did and if it was a good idea, then I caught myself and thought of a good two part maxim:

Don’t let your thoughts dictate your feelings, but also don’t let your feelings dictate your thoughts.

If you cared about someone yesterday, don’t let yourself be fooled by your own fickleness and vagaries that you don’t still care about them today.
