ON LOCATION, KURT COBAIN HOME, LAKE WASHINGTON/EXTERIORS SHOOT: To call this place reclusive, despite the fact that it's burrowed deep within wild bushes, giant rocks (aka boulders), and evergreen trees is an understatement.

To this day, I find that physical movement, music and the language of film editing to be all relative kin with the experience of a creative 'flow '.
Bruce Lee - "A learned man once went to a Zen teacher to inquire about Zen. As the Zen teacher explained, the learned man would frequently interrupt him with remarks like, "Oh, yes, we have that too…" and so on. Finally the Zen teacher stopped talking and began to serve tea to the learned man. He poured the cup full, then kept pouring until the cup overflowed. "Enough!" the learned man once more interrupted. "No more can go into the cup!". "Indeed, I see" answered the Zen teacher. " If you do not first empty your cup, how can you taste my cup of tea?" bye. and p.s. ...
