Many have been inquiring about my new clothing line :)
I'm afraid it's several years and one or two universes away from reality. But a good idea don't you think?
No, we’ve been working on ‘Ragamuffin’ the EP!!!! Put together like nothing matches and everything goes. The pre-release is available now.
I am in Los Angeles. Hollywood!
Who would’ve thought such an organic sounding word, Hollywood, would come to mean anything but! Except when it comes to juice bars and restaurants and all things kale. Everything must be organic.
It is a city ~ it really wasn't a city then in 1970 something. Then, there were places all over the place. Century city ~ the Capitol Records building seemed to be the only skyscraper, shaped like a stack of records with the needle on the top. There was Disneyland way out in Anaheim and Capitol records looked to me like its annex.
There were health food stores, but it was before it became big business, when health food was in the realms of vegetarian. No Whole Foods. You couldn't mention the M-word in those stores and restaurants. Not even free range or grass fed.
Not then. If you were eating your breakfast porridge say at the Source on Sunset you might hum "I don't eat animals and they don't eat me."
I was a vegetarian but I didn't really look it, and that was very important in Los Angeles then. I was entirely too energetic, not calm enough. Much too quick to smile.
Not stern and all knowing enough. Not disapproving of the rest of the meat-eating world enough. Well let's just say I never felt they were "my people" even though there I was kissing cows. Here might be the crux of it, humor!
Now, since I have ventured in and out of every type of arianism, except of course, arianism :), fruitarian, breatharian, you name it, I am here, where I continue to search for "my people."
And I put out a little call in the guise of a title
Ragamuffin ~ hello?... Hello?
We all have the weather in common, the earth the wind the sea and sky ~ But if we didn't have the weather to talk about...what would we talk about you and I?
How many fish will be left in the ocean, how many birds up in the sky?
And what will we say when the children ask about it ~how did we let the planet die?
What will we talk about you and I?
Put together like nothing matches and everything goes.
