Water and the Moon - Entry #1 you may have noticed i haven't been blogging much. I don't think that i had really gotten what THE BLOG is all about...until now.

Before, I'd get to thinking about what to write and think,think,think until weeks passed and nothing was actually WRITTEN!! and i realized that the only entries i actually made were NEWS UPDATES that you could find readily on my website.

So, let's consider this entry #1. From now on what you'll find here won't be on the website... and may or may not be directly related to my music. It'l be whatever's on my mind at any given moment. Here goes:

Let's start with a poem by the Persian poet/philosopher Rumi:

"Water and the Moon"

There is a path from me to you
that I am constantly looking for,

so I try to keep clear and still
as water does with the moon.

I love this idea of there being a path between each of us that is there for the finding. I think that path is understanding. Reading this yesterday, I got to thinking about the many levels on which this idea resonates with me; this path or connection in my deepest most personal relationships, in my relationship to the songs that I am writing, and in my connection with those of you who listen to those songs.

That path between all of us is elusive . I feel like my path in life is to keep searching for that path...if i'm lucky, illuminating it a bit...and managing to navigate it as long as possible.

I hope that this Blog will, in some way, help make that possible. Thanks for reading! And stay tuned. -ce
