January 10, 2016 — Marin County coast, California
Many years ago — longer ago by far than when this picture was shot — someone close to me was enthralled by music that was extremely minimalist, consisting almost entirely of texture and tone. Very little form, rhythm, or melody. Only texture and tone. Although I can’t really say I liked it, I had an appreciation for what he was hearing because he and I are cut from similar pieces of spiritual cloth. But what he was hearing, I was seeing.
We’ve both moved on from texture and tone alone, but it still lives deep within us.
