01/15/08 Mantra Trailer Trailer – you belong here

This is the second in a series of Mantra Trailer Trailers that explore transitional states of being.

For the last few years I’ve set my sight on relocating to the Bay Area. I arrived today in the Berkeley Hills where I’m staying with a friend for a few weeks while getting acclimated to the area. Personally the Mantra Trailer journey is about finding home, uprooting and sending out new shoots. The mantras included in this trailer were recorded by three of my best friends in Durham, NC. I asked them to consider a mantra that addressed their sense of place, neighborhood, home and community.

    I heard THAT… We miss you. Let me know if you want any advice on Berkeley – I lived there for years. Best of luck. Here’s one from me: THE ONLY WAY AROUND IT IS THROUGH IT. -grayson

    Thanks for posting on the blog! I’m staying high up in the Berkeley Hills with a friend. Things are easy now but they are likely to get tougher when I’m on my own. I’ll keep your offer and your mantra in mind.

    Hey, Sherri:
    I’ve followed the steps of your brave adventure through this blog; I adhere to Grayson’s statement, I miss knowing that you are one town over. I also know someone in Berkeley, a college roommate who is in the performing arts. An arts dude. Let me know if you need me to contact him for you.

    AND I also have a weird one for your: “I EXIST … I DON’T EXIST … I EXIST … I DON’T EXIST”.

    I see a lot of interesting stuff stemming from the overlaps that you are producing through your work: collective/intimate/grassroots/techno/repetition/visual/audio. Burning to see how all this will cristalyze. Thank you!

    I’m sorry my wallet wasn’t swift enough to contribute on time. Crazy busy as usual. Do let me know when/if the fund raiser is on again! -JPG

    Thanks Juan-Pablo. You certainly exist in my book. I also appreciate your key words and just to let you know the fundraiser is always on. I’m need to raise $3000 to take the Mantra Trailer on a two-month tour through the midwest and the west coast starting mid-march. Please visit the CONTRIBUTE page.
