harmony with everything around you does not mean being totally wimpy and completely going with any flow. i have an obligation to maintain and orchestrate my energy to attain not only proper balance, but to protect myself and steady the flow of energy around me. should external experience and or energy around me go awry the part i play is crucial is steadying things. with harmony comes responsibility.

James Brown is the Godfather of soul as the pioneer of music “on the one.” This music is “funky,” but not FUNK. Native American music is on the one, is that funk too? NO!! What Mr. Collins and Mr. Clinton did was have EVERY instrument “come down” on the one. JB “just” had an emphasis on the one and this music “swang up” from it. Bootsy has stated in video that what he and GC did was have every instrument play on the one and not only was that new, it created what a lot of people think FUNK is today. Mr. Collins and Mr. Clinton may be paying respect to JB and or even are humble in not realizing exactly what they did in Mothership Connection. AND funk is also not just the beat, its the philosophy behind that music and P-FUNK is the undeniable creator of the ideology behind what funk is today.

i use to zone out on this song way before i had ever set foot in California. i remember how big and fast it all was those first few years, 36 years ago. 21 years young. there had to be times when i thought i wouldn’t make it, times wh hien i strongly considered moving back “home” but i can no longer remember any of them. 3 months out of small town high school to the state capital for 2 years of tech training to get a technician’s diploma that i would take to pasadena a few months later. a one way greyhound bus ticket to stay with family and folks i grew up with that were already out here. by no means did i do it alone, but i freakin’ made it happen. the moments i stop to cherish where i am and celebrate where i’ve been while remembering the times and people of where i came from and those who assisted in getting me to such a wonderful now…
sometimes i ponder the places and things that i am capable of going and accomplishing and i get dizzy from excitement
