I just got off the phone with my with my friend and fellow Camp MMW 2009 alumni Hurricane and he let me know that he would be picking me up at my apartment in Greenpoint Brooklyn tomorrow at about 11am so we could arrive at the grounds around 2pm and set up our tents. It’s just now dawning on me that the time has come!
The moment that I have been anticipating and blogging about for the last 7 weeks is less than 24 hours away. In just one days time I will be hanging out at the Full Moon Resort eating great food and meeting (and re-uniting) with some truly great people. Most importantly, I will begin my education by MMW once again.
While I know that it will be hard work and physically and mentally draining it will also be soulfully re-energizing. I know I will need to work hard in order to maintain my focus on the messages they teach throughout camp, I also know that I will be experiencing some of the best education in the art of musical improvisation that one can ever hope to attain. The atmosphere that surrounds Camp MMW and that flows from every soul that is lucky enough to be energized by it, is nothing short of True Magic.
It’s been just under 2 years since my first experience at Camp MMW and the beauty and magic from that experience has been buried deep down in the depths of my soul for the better part of a year, but it is still there. Now that camp is so close, I can feel that magic swelling deep down in my tummy. I can feel it beginning to come alive once again and make its way up to my surface. It’s ready to come out, and I’m ready for the experience that is coming my way!
I will be doing a blog entry per day throughout everyday of camp in an effort to encapsulate and share the Magic of every day at Camp MMW 2011. Please check in with me throughout the experience and take the journey with me. Ask me questions and become part of the magic yourself.
Now, it’s time for me to go practice, pack up my bass, my clothes, my tent and sleeping bag and prepare for my version of heaven! I can’t wait to see you all there. Safe Travels everyone!!!!
