Sometimes I find music to be an excellent guide for different things. A mood of a song may suggest the mind to fly through certain types of tasks like a surge of water running through a rocky river bed. Today I listened to Jocelyn Pook, who has done genious movie scoring for Eyes Wide Shut. Her record Untold Things, which has more bright tones compared to the darkness of the forementioned movie, ran me through the fragmentary Gospel of Judas with great speed and with it showed me the beauty of damaged texts and the brilliancy of not getting too much caught in details. It is a blessing when the right music happens to come to you on the right moment. I'm quite sure these things work differently for different individuals, and the guide for a same task is found from different music, moods or silences for each practitioner.

And how beautiful they are, the damaged texts. I adore ancient fragments!

This is something I've always really related to, as I often feel that the way I best relate to the world and other people is through sound and the subsequent emotional response to it. Especially while reading spiritual texts, the right music can really make or break my focus and put me in or take me out of the mindset and focus needed for the texts. It really is a beautiful thing when everything aligns. And then there is much to be said for silence as well, which is something I'm learning to appreciate more and more these days. There is never truly silence...

I am watching on TV The Cure - simply the best band in the world - performing at the Flow Festival. And it is awesome. I saw them live a while ago at the Hartwall Arena, Helsinki, and I think that this Flow Festival show is even better.

A couple of my favorite live clips on the tube, which represent beauty and chaos in me, which is made visible in my drawings. I Love them both.
