so he goes to this monastery in New Mexico-
he had been before-but superficially
like those tourists who only go to Las Vegas
Now he is in deep-he sleeps for days
finds this 12 string acoustic Gibson
plays it as a meditation.Here they make honey,
sell art,franchise water and beer recipes
live off the residuals-he admires this -
"there's not a stupid bone in their bodies"
Yet he returns to us in Austin
to play again @open mikes and in concerts.
Yet now he is transformed-he found folk
who are not part of the GET/GIMME ratpack
He found a part of himself he left in the desert
while he was driving fast through
It was getting slower and deeper and in tune
He is a 12 string acoustic guitar
He plays well...
