Cool dream! Interesting how your flying relied on physical things in the beginning, then you gradually didn't need them anymore.

What a poetic dream!

I like that you use the old spelling of aeroplane.

Any chance you might come up to Destiny this weekend?

No, actually
i have two friends visiting from out of town i have to see
one from london

and i'm not prepared: i'm a bit mired in the next issue of RFD
and not being able to control myself.

sorry i'm missing it though...
i look forward to getting up there this year a few times at least...

thanks for the reminder
and the aeroplane over the sea...

Oh, darn. Well, have a great time with your friends!

You're working on the next issue of RFD? I need to write something for the Death issue about my late teacher Gabriel Carrillo... and also, perhaps something about my own thoughts regarding the spiritual significance of Death...

The Aeroplane over the sea makes me think of a line in Sandy Denny's song Late November...

i was thinking of an entire album called "In the Aeroplane over the sea" ( i think ) by Neutral Milk Hotel

it's pretty great.

Sister Selects!!! Is that Sister as in Mish??? Could be raunchy, rad, raw, and Ravishing!!!

I heard that record by Neutral Milk Hotel a long time ago. I should find it and listen to it again.

I put on the second Espers album the other evening and it put me into this really beautiful space... I think I have found the soundtrack for my next phrase of spiritual work.

Thanks for the tip. I think I heard of Baby Dee recently somewhere or other. I'll have to look around for some of the music.

It's called II (as in "Roman numeral two") by Espers.

My favorite tracks I think are the last two songs. Especially "Moon occults the sun." It has a very fae witchy vibe to it. Maybe one of your more technically knowledgeable buddies can email you the tracks.

I spent quite a bit of time with my Faerie friend Flood this weekend and he told me about this Faerie from London named Luc or Lucas who organized a circle for sex workers/sacred sluts/sacred intimates, etc. on the Mountain.

I really hope it works out for myself and my friend Claude to come down to the Mountain for Beltane next year.

Espers live in Philadelphia

It's a raw live recording but gives an impressionistic sense of what they do. I love the ending...
