see you monday suckers!

Filed under: Uncategorized — sassinak @ 12:52 am

basically i’m just killing time right now. at some point light strikes a deal will arrive and i will take off to hang out with a real human. in the morning i go teach and then off we go to meet up with 6 of our friends and camp on some crown land. incidentally some outside bouldering for the first time since i was a kid [or since i knew climbing was a sport?]

i think most of you are aware that i am about to do this becuase i’ve been talking about it for like days on end. funnily enough we’re all this stoked about it. in fact every one of us is bouncing off the walls with glee. AND two more band members are coming so i’m bringing my drum!

so in an effort to settle myself down i went to band practise and sang at the top of my lungs. it required less beer this time. and then i packed my shit and now i’m listening to my recently reunited with me good spirit cd by xavier rudd and blogging.

this may be the nicest part of the evening since i arrived home. there’s this great didjeridoo running through my abdomen and i’m just vibrating with it. i love these things, i’m going to have to learn to play one becaue they are seriously the most hauntingly beautiful instruments. not to mention powerful as hell.

on the saturday nearest the solstice when i go to the big beat they will dance us for a while to a jazz band and then to a drum circle and then they will have everyone lay down and a bunch of volunteer musicians will run around with ocean drums, crystal bowls, bells, shakers, soprano saxophones, flutes, instruments i don’t recall or know the names of and didjeridoos and play them on you. you’re lying there with your eyes closed and some guy sticks the end of his didjeridoo like 6 inches off your chest and plays it.

oh you could just vibrate onto a higher plane right there. i don’t know how gd the organizer of all this stuff came up with that idea but it’s wonderful. i’ve had a djembe played over my abdomen before and that should only be done by someone you’re going to make mad crazy love to directly afterward. (really!)

the didj though, it has a magical property. not to mention that a didj played well will cause me to trance dance better than any drugs i’ve ever done. i can just close my eyes and flow. i think that’s why i liked xavier rudd so much, he takes that to another level.

see you monday, company!



  1. have a blast doin’ that camping thing … the boulding and the band bandying make this sound like there’s going to be one raucous time in the crown lands this weekend. “Seeya” come Mondayish … ;)

  7. Hope you had a total camping blowout. The sign of quality time off is when you return and find you need additional time off to recoup.
