Because the night belongs to lovers - Nomadic Style

“When we got to the part where we had to improvise an argument in a poetic language, I got cold feet. “I can’t do this,” I said. “I don’t know what to say.”

”Say anything,” he said. “You can’t make a mistake when you improvise.”

”What if I mess it up? What if I screw up the rhythm?”

”You can’t,” he said. “It’s like drumming. If you miss a beat, you create another.”

In this simple exchange, Sam taught me the secret of improvisation, one that I have accessed my whole life.”

The artist seeks contact with his intuitive sense of the gods, but in order to create his work, he cannot stay in this seductive and incorporeal realm. He must return to the material world in order to do his work. It’s the artist’s responsibility to balance mystical communication and the labor of creation.”

Where does it all lead? What will become of us? These were our young questions, and young answers were revealed. It leads to each other. We become ourselves.”

It seemed as if the whole of the world was slowly being stripped of innocence. Or maybe I was seeing a little too clearly.”

The night. It's when I feel most awake, most connected to my nature. My favorite time to travel is at night. Night buses, night trains. The night does belong to lovers, to lust, to burning desires held secret in the lulling, seductive moon.
