Kind of New

When I'm feeling kind of blue

Instead of letting these feelings down me

I listen to Kind of Blue

And when I close my eyes

I feel the space around me

I feel the history

I feel the mystery

I let Miles Davis pierce my soul

I let Paul Chambers dance inside my heart

I let Cannonball and Coltrane play mind games

I let Bill Evans lift me to the heavens

And though I've heard the album a thousand times

I still ask myself "Why?"

I still wonder "How?"

And though I don't the answers to these questions

I will pour my heart into the pursuit of them

And as I put horn to face to play along

My whole body tingles

And in this moment I can feel the infiniteness of the universe

I can feel the infinitesimal space that my body takes up

And in this moment I feel good
