Morning Satori - Topeka Avenue

“Sudden enlightenment and a state of consciousness attained by intuitive illumination representing the spiritual goal of Zen Buddhism” - Satori

Morning Satori is an experimental concept published through a song. There are meanings in all aspects of this experiment, through the instruments to the album artwork. There is no replication of this song, in any of its nuances. Each experience is different, though based in the same roots. Just like humans, we evolve and learn, and become better. We are constantly looking for and finding ways to improve ourselves. Much like humans, Morning Satori takes on that learning concept. Each person will find a different meaning in their iteration and each person will find a different meaning through different iterations or the same iterations at different times of their lives.

Relax, close your eyes, and find satori.

Knowing how to start off these things has never been my strong point without it being a cliche. It’s more of a rant to see how long I can go on for before I get tired and run out of interesting ways to word things.

At the moment I’m listening to Tears for Fears Woman in Chains from The Seeds of Love. I came across this album as a young kid, if I had to guess I would say I heard it around the age of 10. I believe it was my mothers album, but could have very well been my dads. Either way, I’m sure they never saw the album again as I would always horde their CD’s and listen to them over and over. I unfortunately never took care of the CD’s so they would get messed up over time. I’m sure I owe them a record store of CD’s for how many went missing.

The highlight of the album is Woman in Chains. When hearing the song I’ve always imagined a music video in my head or it could be a scene from a movie. Unfortunately, never went down that career path so am unable to produce what has always been in head. But as you could imagine from the lyrics,

That’s about as interesting as I can make my first blog entry.

Favorite line from the album:
