WORD of the Day: Smooth

Days rearranging, season near changing. Earth’s crusade to maintain peace and wisdom. To each his own: Own Path, own Pace, own Wrath, own Conviction, own Voyage.

It is about Character. Each moment defining the who and each choice adding to the mold. Smooth. Take it to the rooftops and shoot it at the stars. Let those worries pass, relax, take your time, unmask. Leave the weight of the world at the door alongside tired shoes, enter into the soul jazz groove. Kick-back in a proper way and dust off those inner-city blues. Endure the passionate lure of uninterrupted concentration.  Indulgent retreat from the daily woes, no surrender rather regroup and soul medication. Yea, it’s a good thing, it’s a treatment of wellness, be enrichment. Fall in. Inevitable stumbles and rough patches as splashes of color are to green grasses; integral addition to life’s canvas.

Vibe to it y’all; the soulful sound, acoustics unbound, melodics found. Something to see…a surprise indeed! A criminal in its own function, that like none the other, sly be the call, the name of smooth’s brother. The spirit of savoy is strong with this one. Forceful motions carried out with seamless finesse. A brute in a cold blooded suit. Damn that smooth, damn it! Vascilando, loitering, no good sons of guns—trimmed from the Zoot. And now where’d they go? A smooth get away is one thing, on the other hand its downright culprit to disappear. On the Roam again…or is it on the road again? Either way it goes it is gone. Solid gone jack.

A course unimpeded, steady rollin’, feelin’ good, fly strollin’.

Reflection and Response.

Samuel Bostick


the LIFESTYLE’s role is to create collective space for active Reflection and Response through the arts. This space is built around dialogue, expression, collaboration, and artistic (ex)change involving international craftspeople and their realities. The Porch Swing series opens up a Reflection and Response residency where we feature a Collective member’s ongoing project through weekly installations.
