A few years back, I was having drinks alone at a bar, and eventually I found myself chatting with a stranger about music, art, and life. After an hour or two of conversation, the man said to me, “You know what my philosophy is? 'Is always be.'” When I asked him to explain, he only repeated, “is… always… be.” I still don’t know what he meant by it, but I liked the sound of the phrase, and kept it in my brain to be used as the title of a future piece.
