Roger had abeautiful spoken voice. I was fortunate enough to record him reading the great Allan Ginsberg poem Sunflower Sutra.
Roger was a shining light in this dark world. He had his own demons bought by his illness but the illumination from his heart would outshine his darkness. He sought to fill this universe with song, word, and spiritual thoughts.
I was train boy from 1998 until 2011. It had been a good run. Roger would buy me train passes so I could come and go the apartment as I pleased. As I did this I would watch the seasons go round and round. When I acquired a dslr, I would take snapshots to catch the changing scenery. I always had a sense of foreboding as I knew my situation was in a precarious balance. Roger was never the most stable person and knew the scene could blow up at anytime. It often did but somehow it would work out. We were committed to the project one hundred percent. Finally one day the situation did implode and my days as train boy were over. The project, however, has not ended for me. So to this regard and in loving memory of Roger and all the magic we shared I continue on.
check out this instrumental for piano in C Major…quite often Roger and I would sit out in the woods playing guitar…it was an experiment in being…as we were ignored by everyone it didn’t matter if we were out there and no one heard us…we had each other…as people go through their busy lives still not paying attention, I have become a wee bit smarter in my advancing age and no longer care about them…it was all about the project for Roger and me and making it the best thing possible…it was our grand experiment…
check out this instrumentql for piano…I would walk up Battle Hill quite often to 65 McKinely and put the key into the lock to open the door and when I walked in I would find playing at the piano…his spirit exuded a strange and wonderful light…
An exciting instrumental on guitar…one never knew where Roger’s imagination was going to lead him…he came up with the strangest of terms..which only he could decipher….
Listen to this song to My Mother…,Scorpio Jewel
Here is a new song for you. Listen and enjoy…Symphony of the Forest
“Jesus said to you all whoever looks at a woman to lust for her
Has already committed adultery with her in his heart for sure” Matthew 5:28
Lust is not love
True love is from above
Have faith in the promise of Christ
5-dimensional love that is not a heist
But freely given by your soul mate’s heart
Pure, unbounded, unconditional love right from the start
“And you shall not glean every grape from your vineyard; you shall leave
A portion for the poor and the stranger” Leviticus 19:10
Feed the poor, feed the outcast among you
It is, indeed, the next right thing to do
“And you shall not swear falsely by the name of the Lord nor profane HeSheIt’s name” Leviticus 19:12
Take no vow, swear not, profane nothing
Right now, Praise HeSheIt with hot verse to HeSheIt sing
“Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that HeSheIt’s spirit
dwells within you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16
Live in the blessings of God, turn on others to this good thing,
Put your hand on the rod, Hear the choir of angels as they sing,
“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. He catches
the so-called wise in their own craftiness and scheming” 1 Corinthians 3:19
Make your plans with the whole community in mind,
Don’t burn anyone from behind,
“Give to the person who asks of you and from those who want to borrow from you
Do not turn away” Matthew 5:42
Give unconditional love and you will receive unconditional love,
“Teach me Oh Lord the way of your statutes and we shall keep
them to the very last day of our lives” Psalm 119:33
Amen. Hallelujah. Selah. Om. Namaste.
