'...human history, really — is full of evidence that we’re not here long, that we should get our houses in order and do something of value with our time.'
From this NYTimes article on Adam Yauch
This song inspired and was the soundtrack all my Sanskrit work in jewelry. Thank you Ravi Shankar.

Oh Master,show some compassion on me,
Please come and dwell in my heart.
Because without you, it is painfully lonely,
Fill this empty pot with the nectar of love.
I do not know any Tantra, Mantra or ritualistic
worship i know and believe only in you.
I have been searching for you all over all the world,
please come and hold my hand now.
For most people, life on earth is hard. For the lucky ones it is merely hectic. No wonder we get caught up in our daily lives. We look down rather than up. We ignore the face that we live on a tiny speck of rock suspended in an unutterable
vastness of empty space. But above the thin skin of the atmosphere are other worlds. Worlds where 100 year old hurricanes are raging, ice volcanoes are erupting, gargantuan lightning bolts are leaping between cloud tops and moons. These things have been happening for billions of years, but it is only now that we can see them in glorious close-up. We are extraordinarily privileged to be alive...Welcome to the sun and planets, the moons and comets and chunks of assorted rubble...
Sunday July 22nd was a beautiful summer day. I was lucky to be invited to participate in a 'Gathering at Prospect Park' organized by David Ribbons & Sam Fleishner - an adventure that began with the map and lovely handwritten directions. We (Bobby, niece Jordyn, daughter Elsie) had a relaxing but very invigorating 'picnic' kind of day filled with interesting people, great work, fun activities and performances. Below are some photos of the '8 Bells'. More pics and photos of other participants work/perfomances/projects on my site.
Thanks Grace again for posting about the glazed jewels at Scosha...
