The Universe: A View From the Writer’s Window

This song comes out of a conversation I was having with my sister Shelli about life and music, and an artist’s place in the world.  It is also a part of the book I am finishing, tentatively titled, “The Tao of Music: On Living a Musical Life, and Using Left Brain Tools in a Right Brain World”  The question of what WE are doing with the moments we are given as artists and creative people, is as important as what is wrong with the current system, and the notes we play in response.  The point of this exercise, (aside from quality time with my sister), was to take a view of the universe as a space where ALL things are possible, and to remember purpose is not bound to systems, it is bound to the divine.  The universe is waiting for you. . . and me, to do what we were put here to do.  I lift my glass to every person seeking creative success in your chosen discipline.  I send you good energy and words of encouragement.  THE UNIVERSE IS WAITING FOR YOU

Across the spans of time

Mirrors do what they do

The things that do appear

Are closer than they seem

The chronicles of a writer

Speaking through prisms made free

Vibrating through out all time

Things that can’t be seen

The universe is waiting

The universe

Waiting for you

The universe is waiting

The universe

Waiting for you

The universe is waiting

The universe

The prodigal son of the builder

Wisdom in every stone

Destiny’s unbound

From the root set free

From the pen of the lonely writer

Bleeding ink into words that ring true

Shake the earth and the souls of the elders

Manifesting time. . .

The universe is waiting

The universe

Waiting for you

The universe is waiting

The universe

Waiting for you

The universe is waiting

The universe

Dimensions stringing me along

Particles collecting matter up a song

Vibrations waving saying hello. . .

Great, great, greater, grand

Wisdom’s mellow (hey)

Take it round the world and back again

Its a wrinkle in time that we’re looping in

Keep looking at the thing that shines

Eyes will go blind

The universe is waiting

The universe

Waiting for you

The universe is waiting

The universe

Waiting for you

The universe is waiting

The universe
