RIP Luke Perry

I’m so very sad to hear of Luke Perry’s passing this morning. He suffered a massive stroke last week that he couldn’t recover from. He was only 52.

He was a big part of my coming-of-age in LA - I was obsessed with “Beverly Hills 90210” and him especially (Dylan McKay).

My deepest condolences go to his family and friends and all those who knew and loved him.

Happy Birthday, David Lynch

Happy birthday to the great filmmaker, director and fellow transcendental meditation devotee, David Lynch!

May we all be inspired to always catch the big fish!

Catching Ideas

Ideas are like fish.

If you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you've got to go deeper.

Down deep, the fish are more powerful and more pure. They're huge and abstract. And they're very beautiful.

I look for a certain kind of fish that is important to me, one that can translate to cinema. But there are all kinds of fish swimming down there. There are fish for business, fish for sports. There are fish for everything.

Everything, anything that is a thing, comes up from the deepest level. Modern physics calls that level the Unified Field. The more your consciousness-your awareness-is expanded, the deeper you go toward this source, and the bigger the fish you can catch.
