That which colors the mind
This recording by Owsley Stanley of sarod master Ali Akbar Khan featured in a recent post here. My further reading came across the following unpublished epitaph to Owsley Stanley - popularly known as 'Bear' - by his daughter Rhoney Gissin Stanley. It provides a refreshing contrast to today's social media influenzas:
Bear was a man who walked his talk, who challenged the cult of personality and wanted the attention of others to focus on his work with sound, his art, and his philosophy, not on him.
