8 years ago I heavily got into shaminism and particulary the works of
Carlos Castaneda...one of his books (which consists of quotes from his
first 6) is my bedside companion, anytime I'm in a slump, musically or
otherwise, it takes 10 minutes and I'm out of my "period of
sedation"...Aleister Crowley(no he's not as bad as they say he is)
also has that affect on me as well...Just 2 or 3 pages and the "fires
of inspiration are set a blaze"
