Today I flew for the first time in 11 years. I was nervous and didn’t think I would be able to do it smoothly, but I remembered a mantra that I use spoken by the late, great Adam Yauch from “Namaste”….
My fear was just a shadow.
So using that, I overcame my fear and remembered how much I loved flying. Listening to “Namaste” and “I Don’t Know” while cruising over the clouds was groovy in an existential sort of way,
i was looking for some pictures of mike and then i saw this
and i was really doing well until i saw the bandage on his neck
now my week is ruined
Why? This is a part of Yauch’s life. Yes, he was sick, and yes, his face is droopy, and he has a bandage on his neck, and it’s sad. But regardless of all that, I think he’s beautiful….because no matter how weak he got, he was still Yauch, our beautiful souled Beastie Boy til the end.
I am sad that he couldn’t stay with us, but I also know that his spirit it free„,and that makes me smile!
