Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)
. . . but could we mistake failure for completion? Seems a little bit like Cher's third or fourth retirement announcement. It begs the question: Will you be touring next year? Or will you wait a year or two before emerging from "retirement." I guess what has governed the frequency of the retirement/come-back strobe in the past is the period of the nostalgia intensity integrator, or "at what point will the demand for tickets make a come-back financially feasible."
Or am I just being a dick?
There seems to be a whiny component to the ambience of the talk. A similar whininess was detectable in the three or four sessions from three or four years ago with Ramana Spencer and Stan Hartmann. The theme was, "Wow, it is so hard, even painful, just being here on this mundane level of existence." My impression is that of a grain of sand in an oyster, or maybe a pea under a mattress, a lingering impurity. This seems as though it might indicate unfinished business, an incomplete realization.
I just wonder . . .
