What if “I” is outside of “me”?

I question the nature of my conscious whole-body experience of reality.   Questions help me keep my senses open, awake, vital, alive, and in love…I practice performance by practicing playing awake. I feel awake when “I” is not dominating “my” thoughts or field of view.  I feel vital when reflections surface in a world I am able to directly experience.  I feel alive when I receive a sense of self from my perceptions of a phenomenal world.  I feel meaningful when meaning fills me.  I feel love when “I” acknowledge “we”.

For the sake of whimsy, reverie, and poetry…

How can a drinking vessel never thirst?…Break it’s form and allow it to sink to the bottom of the ocean…

I am so looking forward to experiencing this festival!
