I really was moved this morning – Jonathan really let go in a way he rarely does. Were some people made uncomfortable? I need t repeat listen to this one a few times.
I have a longer post for later, but for now let me ask this:
What do you think the natural state of being for humans is? In other words; without the distractions, stresses and concerns that we deal with here and now – how would we view the Creation?
Last night I worked entertaining the reception time for Fight Night for Kids Much Cigar smoke, large amounts of alcohol and many nieces escorting their Uncles.
On the bright side, I met and performed for some very appreciative people, including Bert Sugar, who returned again and again with guests to my table. Bert is not what you would call a mega celeb, but he has made his mark on the world. At the end of the reception we had a few quiet words and he thanked me for being so “real”.
“Most guys I see doing their little tricks try to be so cocky and self important, but you were the real deal. A Real artist. Thanks for the best time I’ve had at one of these in a long time. You can see God working through you.”
That last line still has me stunned.
Notes: Nice way to begin – cut through the miniscule detailing which tend to mislead and misdirect from the real message.
“In the beginning God” Exactly.
“… created the heavens and the earth. And the earth was without form and void” No gravity? And without gravity no direction.
“And the Spirit of God moved” To me this always represented the very beginning of time as we know it. God moved. God is everywhere, why would he need to “move”? So His transition from point A to Point B through space implies not only space itself but the time to traverse, hence the start of the universe clock.
“…upon the face of the waters.” As the single electron moves across the face of the single proton in the Hydrogen atom, the very basis of structure. Movement = time = gravity = the Spirit of God binding the universe together by simple moving.
The Word was with God and the Word was God. Word
The majesty of nature, created by God, reflecting His Spirit. If nature more closely reflected God, could we as humans survive its beauty? Is this why we must for now view everything “through a glass, darkly”?

Unicorns and cannonballs,
Palaces and piers,
Trumpets, towers, and tenements,
Wide oceans full of tears,
Flag, rags, ferry boats,
Scimitars and scars,
Every precious dream and vision
Underneath the stars
You climbed on the ladder
With the wind in your sails
You came like a comet
Blazing your trail
You saw the whole of the moon.
