I’m making today my own, personal, meditation on the art of “La Dolce Vita" and the maximization of pleasure through a profound appreciation of all the simple things…
I appreciate my coffee.
Give me this track in a room filled with laser lights cutting in and out of the sea of dancing bodies and the cold, fog machine smoke and I will be in sheer ecstasy.
Give me the whole thing: The accelerated heartbeats, the sweaty skin, the wild hair, the lip-biting, the out-of-this-world, breathlessness of it all;
I feel this music PULSING through my veins.
There’s this beautiful and awing contrast that happens when we are reduced to basic matter in moments of intimacy;
Suddenly we are not only flesh and bones, organs, molecules & atoms, but a universe of cellular stories, memories and all the potential energy in the world. We become this mind-blowing story of chance and possibility, happening and un-happening at once, entwined and tethered together and held in place by… some extraordinary force… some invisible connection.
I figure it’s because we are just vessels for love.
