was it fate? you decide..

i've never considered myself an overly spiritual person..and by this i mean a person who strongly believes in the occurrence of miracles, signs from beyond, or even daily horoscopes. (well, o.k. at least the ones published in 'cosmo.') but, today fate appeared to smack me right in the face. as i was walking the 'belly' (what i refer to as the stretch of neighborhoods between pennsylvania and ramsdell streets) it happened.

my mind was wandering, as it usually does, darting between thoughts of my next artistic endeavor/marketing strategy (sure to garner me immediate riches, infinite stardom, and numerous accolades. HA!) and fantasies, ranging from what meal, caffeinated or alcoholic beverage i might prepare and ingest tonight, sure to cancel out any benefits gained from my strenuous cardiovascular ritual.

i spun my ipod to 'browse,' then 'artists,' then 'radiohead,' finally landing on 'the bends' and tapped 'play.' no better music to zen out to, and i was in the midst of 'planet telex' when my mind remembered a recent post by anavoog, mentioning she really loves to play the bass guitar best, out of all the instruments she plays. then i asked myself, as radiohead drove my senses into overdrive, what instrument might i play, if i were granted the necessary attributes to perform such a task..

drums.

then, not a half step further my eyes looked down to find the remnants of a torn up, driven over, pulverized piece of a cardboard box (below)



was this a sign? am i depriving the world of its next percussive darling genius? my instincts say i'm better off using this delapadated piece of pulp in a future assemblage. i think chuck chuckvideo, no doubt, will respect my decision.

How cute, I can totally see you behind a drum set! haha

And I *loved* this... "sure to cancel out any benefits gained from my strenuous cardiovascular ritual." Doesn't that always suck?

I haven't gotten into Radiohead but everrrrytime my friend Adam plays it in his car I'm going "Who is this? I love it!" and he always says "That's Radiohead again, just get the albums already!" So I got them all last week on my work hard drive so I can discover them finally. :)

i wouldn't recommend driving heavy machinery while under the influence of radiohead. they are a band like no other.

oh, geez, and don't get me started on the back falls of exercise..it's just not fair. if i could just convince myself that celery and sprouts are a delectable reward after a hard work out, i would have no fault with the world, my relationships would flourish, i would have the confidence of a silent giant and the heart of an olympiad..and a blissful calm would blanket my soul.
oop. gotta go. i think i just heard the ice cream truck drive by-

Well it would be even MORE awesome if you can look like *that* and tell me that you don't just eat sprouts and celery! See?

I'm off to go eat my Lean Cuisine frozen lunch. ha ha

Wow...
There must be a spiritual bug in the air because I had a long-ass spiritual conversation myself last night... unfortunately, it didn't involve drums but I might just post about it nonetheless. :) Speaking of which, are you going to take up drums? Or use the box in a future artistic piece? You do know that, according to the LiveJournal bylaws, you're required to post pics of said art, right? :o)

Re: Wow...
yeah, those kinda moments tend to spin my wheels..
actually, i have no inclination of picking up any instrument. it just made me think. i wonder how many other string of events 'speak' to me, without my knowledge? i hardly think the physical playing of drums will enlighten me, but rather the act of 'listening' and being open to the possibility..that's where creativity lives.

might be awhile before i make art outta this. gotta let it fester awhile. but i'll keep ya posted!
