Kidneythieves: Free Dominguez recording “Floating Angels” from the forthcoming release The Invisible Plan, coming fall 2011
Fear is Afraid of This
(A lyric from “Floating Angels” off The Invisible Plan.)
I remember writing this phrase down sometime when I was in NYC summer 2001. What is the worst fear and how do you make it stop. And I thought, “Make fear afraid that it won’t have power anymore.” I had a visual of that melting witch chick in The Wizard of Oz.
Afraid of failure, afraid of being alone, afraid of the dark, afraid of not having love, afraid of cilantro, afraid, afraid, yippity whathaveyou.
The quote “Worry [fear] is using your imagination for something you DON’T want to happen” I’ve said to myself many times. I’d like to imagine better things. Fear is a teacher. Not an existence.
You could think of continual fear as “unsustainable emotion.” It deters growth. Recycle it as fuel for success. Eco-emotional.
“Fear is afraid of This, Don’t be afraid of This.”
This is part of The Invisible Plan.
Well guys, I flew to NYC to get a bunch of stuff done for The Invisible Plan, record release party, etc. On my way there, there was an earthquake not far from NYC, so we had to circle around because of tower issues, almost ran out of gas, quickly landed in Pittsburgh to re-fuel to finally get in late.
Lots of great things coming out of meeting with everyone, our PR firm is amazing: They are all about spreading good vibes and consciousness—no fluff. Even some surprises came our way!
Hurricane Irene: A Change of Plans
I had planned to come home Monday, but Hurricane Irene changed that; Could be hopefully back by Friday, and by some miracle, home Wed. We may or may not miss deadlines, it is too soon to tell. But this is Mama Nature’s conjuring, so if we have to push The Invisible Plan store another week, please bear with. You will know *all* soon.
Send good thoughts to everyone on the East Coast. NYC has a lot of glass, a lot of flooding. I have been shipped to a friend’s house 20 min outside of Manhattan, with a basement and all.
In the meantime, Bruce will do what he can in the studio, while I am gone, and I have my studio with me. I’ve already written a piano song that I think will be a nice thing to add to our next works.
Let’s bow down to what rules: Nature. She always wins.
