andy, jesse and hadewych making beautiful music. i love hearing jesse’s own style and voice added to the mix. its softens things in a necessary way. andy’s music is brilliant. beautiful surprising sounds.

my friend craig is right. my answers to what is an angel must be found in the text and then what i am to do is right there as well.

here are the explicit instructions of what an angel is supposed to do; “do nothing more than look, assemble, testify, commemorate, observe. remain alone. let it all happen. remain earnest. remain spirit. remain in the distance. remain word.” i have been making things too hard. putting a lot of pressure on myself to learn all these new things. dutch history. the language. the angel world. the proper way of moving. effortless mastery is what is needed. some clean focus and relaxation.

i’m going back for the second time to see don carlos. i want to learn from these dutch actors. i find them to be so much better than me. or should i say that have a lot to teach me. the theatre i’ve seen here is inspiring.

i’m very interested in this story of the Pope offending some muslims, some muslims are offended far too easily. some christians are offended far too easily. turning to violence as a reaction to these comments is full of shit. that needs to be looked at. much of the media attention has been like rabid dogs. this is a serious discussion. not a sound bite. i would like to have this discussion.

“do nothing more than look, assemble, testify, commemorate, observe. remain in the distance. remain word. in afstand blijven. in het woord blijven.

love,

bernie
