THE SEED CATALOG 2010

Summer 2010

 

 
"Don't hurry, start early."
- Herbert Cain
 
 

LAST CHILD

 

 IN THE

 

WOODS

Yes, quite wise

and true -- but why then should we force ourselves to rush ahead at all?

Because, in a creative sense, if we delay,

the road we're

following may

very well vanish

before we can

ever find it again ..

,

Why be brisk and efficient

in everything we do? Because to be otherwise is a drag on

the entire system

- and because accumulating a history of small, clear victories builds momentum

and courage

to continue

with confidence.

And so, we strive for excellence and maximum efficiency

in all that

we do.

"We have no art," say the Balinese, "we do everything as well as we can."


 

 

Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder
 

RICHARD LOUV

 

 

PART IV


THE NATURE-CHILD REUNION


Each new year is a surprise to us.
We find that we had virtually forgotten the note of each bird,
and when we hear it again, it is remembered like a dream, Reminding us of a previous state of existence. . .
The voice of nature is always encouraging.

 

-HENRY DAVID THOREAU
 

 

Bill Joyner's CINEMA ClKCUS 5/18/2010 ~ 8 pm New College ~ 4 Wnds Cafe, Sarasota, Florida

> RETRO VIEW <
"Slow Down," "This Dream of You," "Huck's Tune," "Killing the Blues," "Storms"
"We can be heroes,
just for one day,
" David Bowie's live
Bridge School rendition,
that's how
we'll begin
to create a quiet,
mostly audio,
media setting.

Then, we begin
the scene in 200I
where Dave says,
"Open the doors!"
- continuing through Hal's
crazy daisy fade out tune,
when we mute the sound track
& introduce these Bowie songs:
"Hang on to Yourself,"
"Sound & Vision," and
"Ashes to Ashes".

Simultaneously,
as these tunes proceed,
opening scenes of
THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH,
are projected (mute)
alongside the 200I
"star gate corridor".

A lot of Leonard Cohen's
Live in London dvd:
"Ain't no Cure"
"Anthem"
"Hallelujah"

Color slides
from everywhere
and beyond.
Movie clips,
cinematic epiphanies,
multimedia
mind flips.

Scenes from BARAKA (juxtaposed
with Neil Young tunes);



  Emphasize what you choose by ignoring all that you reject. - Ralph Waldo Emerson




Scenes from THE NEW WORLD
(synched with "Humans from the Earth"
by T Bone Burnett, and
"Plunder my Soul" by the Stones)

Concluding scenes of 
ZORBA THE GREEK
and Fellini's 8 1/2 ,
with original soundtracks.

     
"I have nothing to say,"
John Cage said,
"and that is poetry."
He also said, "everything
we do is music."

John Cage was a
Zen composer
and an audacious
celebrant
of pure
silence.
 
If you want to take your time, you have to have some time ..

And what is it worth?
Your time?
Or mine-
which, currently and commercially, is worth
a little over
ten dollars
an hour.

But my time,
or yours,
how much
is it really worth?

Beyond any estimation,
I'm sure.

Think about seeing
SIMON OF THE DESERT,
a short, poignant
and quite funny
film by Luis Bunuel,
which, oddly enough,
is both a send up
and a put down
of popular piety.

Before I say goodnight, let me hasten
to altogether recommend:

Ayann Hirsi Ali's
fresh appraisal
of world affairs
in her second
spiritual autobiography NOMAD

Leonard Cohen's transcendent
LIVE IN LONDON

Bob Dylan's
existentialist love songs on THROUGH LIFE TOGETHER and TELL TALE SIGNS

  "In this life we cannot do
great things. We
can only do
small things
with great love."
- Mother Teresa

July 24, 2010

. Time to proceed with the Seed, time to bleed away the loss
of dreams,
later to be
recovered,

and to begin everything all over again, thankfully.

My long announced, publication
SEED SONGS
(a rainbow of natural spirituality)

must be delayed even further:

THE SEED CATALOG, however, need
wait no longer --
 


dancing star '82 regularly $500 for this month of July costs only $300 -- a 40% discount honoring the 40th anniversary of the
Immaculate Heart Community
