Hairdressing Legend Vidal Sassoon Passes Away
BTC is sad to report that legendary hairdresser Vidal Sassoon died. He passed away in his home after a battle with leukemia with his family by his side. WE WILL FOREVER MISS YOU VIDAL!
Vidal loved the poet Rumi. This one is for you dear friend...
SPLIT THE SACK
Why does the soul not fly
When it hears the call?
Why does a fish, gasping for land, but near the water,
Not move back into the sea?
What keeps us from joining the dance
That dust particle do?
Look at their subtle motion
In the sunlight
We are out of our cages
With our wings spread
Yet we do not lift off
We keep collecting bits of rocks and poetry like children
Pretending they are merchants
We should split the sack
of this culture
And stick our heads out
Leave your childhood
Reach your right hand up
And take this book from the air.
You do know right from left don't you?
A voice speaks to your clarity
Move into the moment of your death
Consider what you truly want
Now call out commands yourself
You are the king. Phrase your question
And expect the grace of an answer
Vidal, you were the king. You followed your dream and by doing so you allowed so many more to follow theirs! Rest in peace.
