Robert Fripp’s Diary

Gloriosity abounds. Another strong affirmation of all that we know to be right, and true, and available; but which appears to hide beneath the surface of tawdry events, shoddy actions & cheap motivations.

And here is an intriguing entry from five years ago:

Tuesday 1st. August, 2000 06.46
We believe we listen to music. How often do we realise that music is listening to us? Music so wishes to be heard that it endures and persists unendurable and impossible conditions in order to enter our world. But music, in its nature, is not permitted to shout: music is not allowed to drown out our babbling & our noise. So, it continues to present itself, available and willing, to the degree that we are able & willing to listen & hear; to the degree that we are able to bear to accept what is on offer. For this, we have to put aside all our demands, wants, expectations, rights & requirements, and be present to what is. So simple. So hard.

Thanks DK
