r&r diary – “2022 = Om… Shanti… Om…” 01.01.22

Happy New Year!

As that old song from the band Chicago asks: “Does anyone really know what time it is?” Nah. Not really. Our new motto for this year: “Life, not what you think!”

Mathematics may be the language of the Universe, but, you know, you can’t put a number on the most valuable things in life: Love, Music, Poetry, Dance, Laughter.

This New Year’s Day morning we are listening to “World Spirituality Classics 1: The Ecstatic Music of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda” (2017) – This record was a major discovery for us in 2021. Just spinning it seems like a spiritual quest. So beautiful, passionate & holy.

We actually ended up purchasing a handful of Alice Coltrane cds in 2021. This one, a late career collection from “rare ashram tapes” is bold, breath-taking, powerful, life-changing & life-affirming. Alice Coltrane was a giant in music and in life. Her art, her dedication to the spirit is a joy and an example. Devotion. Yes. What a great way to start the new year.  The music swells, and washes, and cleanses the soul.  “Shanti… Om… Shanti…” – Jammer
