Love With No Object

I feel a love in my heart that, at its strongest and its most solid, doesn’t have any specific object to which it’s attached. I can express my love for my wife, but I can also express a very similar love, if not the same love, for you, who I have barely met, and say I feel a connection to you and feel a love for you, in some way, which is great, because right now my wife is 500 miles away from here. She’s visiting her family in Idaho and I’m in Philadelphia, and it’d be a real bummer if all my love were wrapped up in her, all my sense of being completed with a relationship was tied to being physically with her.

But when I have this sense of what Rumi calls a love with no object, then it just sits peacefully inside my heart, and then whatever I come in contact with – whether that’s another human being, if it’s a squirrel, if it’s my wife, my God, if it’s the leaves on the tree that I’m touching right now – it just feels peaceful and stable and kind of indestructible.

The October Song

For those of you who may not know, I used to write music. I suppose I still do, but music composition has taken a backseat to my continued pursuit of writing and exploring this city.

While the October Song is no masterpiece, I have decided to put is here (by popular demand) so that all of you who get it stuck in your head come October have a place to listen to it. Enjoy the slight midwestern accent of an 18-year-old me, trying her best to encapsulate October’s charm through harmony.

Saawariya Meets Mykki Blanco

Sometimes I do these crazy music videos that take disparate styles of music and dance and stitch them together.

I couldn’t resist doing it again. So, in the tradition of finding synchronicity in disparate mediums, please enjoy the latest installment of my insanity. Warning: Explicit Content.

Missy, Gene, and Donald

Last week, I published a mashup of old school dancers and modern hip hop.
I couldn’t resist doing it again. So, in the tradition of finding synchronicity in disparate mediums, please enjoy the latest installment of my insanity.

Also, shout out to Polo for suggesting this song. I guess I’m taking requests now?

Fred, Ginger, and Kendrick

Lately, I have found myself finding synchronicity where I least expect it. Please enjoy the latest installment of my mind’s adventures into making connections where none have previously existed.

Also, Happy Birthday to my big sis! :)

Stunning Performance – Kishi Bashi

One of the most awe-inspiring artists I have ever had the delight of stumbling upon, Kishi Bashi’s live performances are always charged with electricity. His unique combination of symphonic composition mixed with modern looping technology creates a sound unlike anything I’ve ever heard. This is my favorite performance of his, and I wanted to share it to celebrate the gorgeous Spring weather upon us.
