I find myself drawn to the existence of John Cage. Every so often I intersect with a mystical force in music that raises my consciousness to an exciting new level. John Cage’s indeterminacy in music is gaining traction in the music of our heart.
I happened upon a book in Barnes & Noble by Kay Larson, Where the Heart Beats about John Cage. I found myself spellbound by the author’s elocution coupled with her tri-balanced design that forms a strong foundation of purpose. John Cage, Zen Buddhism and the Inner Life of Artists called to me with a profound sense of peace and wisdom. I have to acquire this book to gain insight into the artist and person, John Cage. This book materializes as a key marker in the quest of achieving the creative process.
