Under the Ash...
Photograph taken by passerby, Oct 15 2015. Jesse Van Horne playing original tunes amidst his installation "Musical Fruit" at Cheesman Park in Denver, CO.
What can I say? It was a beautiful day. Art takes many forms, not all of them visible to the eye, some art is visible only to the ear, and some art, is visible to both simultaneously!
This is the third time I have installed this work at Cheesman Park but the first time I have played a live show during the flash installation. Today it was up for about 1.5 hours, then... gone! Always a good time. Perfect weather, perfect vibes.
Just hours before this my muse gave me these lines:
Those Things Which Seem So Dim
Those things which seem so dim to me,
are only proof that eyes don't see,
those things that seem before my face
it seems I'm eager to embrace.
All hope then lost and I am too
the clouds so thick, this feeling blue
because before me all I see
is lack of possibility.
But when mine eyes I seek to close
the lock unlocks, abundance flows
into my life, into my day
begins the shift, clouds drift away
and there again I see my hope
not out beyond but in my boat
and though these waves still roll and rock
i neither long for shore nor dock
Adventurer upon high seas
a trickster armed with wit and ease
I cast my cares into the breeze
content to live the life I please!
Be what you want to be in the world, and you will find your audience. Most of all, be true to thyself!
Rock on my good people of planet Earth.
