Eyes to See

"Ralph? The time has come, to go out of your mind. Are you ready, Ralph? Are you ready to die and be reborn? First you must be in a state of grace. First, you must examine yourself in this mirror of confession. What do you see there? Your personality: all your goals, and your fears, your little ambitions... the chess game of your life. You have to check that Ralph, you can't take that on the trip with you. And then that other side of you Ralph, that dark unconscious, all those animal impulses which you hide and keep down below. All this baggage too must be checked. You can't take that on the billion year voyage to God." - Timothy Leary, from the album: "Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out"

For as long as I have been in a band, I have heard of the Deland Original Music Festival. Every year, around late October, local musicians start gearing up for it and advertisements go out all over Myspace and Facebook; and every year my band mates and I say the same thing, "we will never pay to play a show."
