Ari Neufeld is a consummate creative light house.
Here we are... the world didn't end!!
There is so much going on right now, and so little solid ground, but I'm learning how to surf! What an exciting time we live in.
It is the dawning of the new age, an incredible age of wisdom and technology. It is the quintessential future that we worried about when I was being raised into the "Jesus Movement".
It is a time when all of our paradigms are challenged. All our world views are being shaken out. Knowledge doubles every year?! My kids have never lived withOUT YouTube. Wtf just happened?
What feeds us? How do we tap into the magic of life here, despite all of the trappings of our forefathers tugging at us to continue feeding into a machine that has become a monster?
I'll tell you how: we dance on the gravestones. We make music in the streets. We make love to the life that we have. We cherish our children. We pursue joy.
This is all a veiled admission that my life has been in turmoil and in transit, but surely heading towards bigger arenas. Where all of the consternation, insight and confusion is illuminated and we sing together, and CREATE. That's the metronome pounding inside of me. That's where you will truly hear a pure song, pouring out of my heart.
In brief: Everything is changing. Hard changes. Necessary changes. Uncomfortable times. Beautiful times. Have you ever sung songs around a campfire at the same beach that lapped quietly in the distance where your father died? I just did. You can feel the aurora bourealis leap like an orca up above.
There will be a new record. A really, really incredible new record. The best yet. The best ever. It will have ten songs on it. Mostly new ones.
I will be touring less in familiar regions for probably the next two years. Follow me online. This webpage will be changing. Things will start to get organized. There will be lots to watch and listen to!
And let's get personal. Deep. Fun. BRING IT.
