"What are you listening to? What are you enjoying listening to now? I would listen to too much music. I have nothing to sell my music and my life. I still think music all the time. I'm still playing my horn. Even though I can't play my order anymore, I'm still imagining passages that I would be fingering on my instrumental, although I can't do that anymore. So I'm listening to music, I love music. I get to hear music. I'm from the radio stations that have some music and I love it. But I don't know to listen to music anymore. I don't mean go out in the street. I mean, I don't seek out music anymore. Is it frustrating to hear in a sense? Since you can't, you know, just pick up your horn and play some figures or anything. I wouldn't look very completely frustration, but that's part of it. Because there's a fear what I would be doing, what I can do. So in a sense, I was first not all frustration. Because I love music and listening to somebody that I admire is great. It should great feeling. So she may come a little bit because I would say contribute being that was part of the scene. This is a pleasure and an honor speaking with you. I hope we get to do it again. Okay, man, take it easy. Use well, sir. All right, man. All right, bye, sunny.

We're back with the rest of my conversation with Sonny Rollins. Do you remember where you were when you found out Clifford and Richie Powell passed away in that car accident? Well, the man was in brownie and Richie were in Philadelphia where they lived. Richie lived in willow grove sort of suburb ranging with in Philly, so we had been on the road to very big erodes. So just he had a low time off before we went. I think we have gone back to California, but on the way we were going to play in to Carlos. Anyway, the days we had off max and myself came to New York and George Margo came to New York. The next job was to follow. And we left Chicago traveling by car and what she followed left Philadelphia traveling on the Pennsylvania turn break by call. Max and I got we've had such a problem and we know rating around there. I remember miles was playing at a club right there in the street when 63rd street. So while we were waiting for cliff bridge to arrive in Chicago, we had the bad news. It was a shocker and we were quiet like babies. And there were now as a very different everybody loved brownies. I mean, Richie too, but Bernie was, you know, brownie was the leader. And God was more accolades in the ritual. You know what she was sort of, but she was making his name at the time really, huh? He was making his name at the time. Incredible plan. Really. Did you see bud Powell in the sort of aftermath of that or ever get a chance to talk with bud Powell who was Richie Powell's brother? Do you know how he took that? I don't know how he took that. No. Okay. No, I don't know. Did you feel like that band had more yet to do? I've been so we think you know president I used to practice together all the time and besides the gigs, but we were trying to get closer. You know, as the musicians, playing it, a saxophone and trumpet. So we were trying to get coffee, trying to get tighter with our things we had to play on sambal. And everything and I was new in the band. I was trying to learn the book and all of this stuff that we saw that was just the repertoire of his playing with Clifford that he and I tried to always get closer. So yeah, I think that a lot to do. Yeah. Do you think that had anything to do with you sort of stripping things back and going to that trio format the next year? Just you on sacks and then bass and drums. Was that related musically at all? I don't remember when I did the first three albums. That would have been 50 around that time? Yeah, sick maybe 6 months later, 8 months later, it would have been just the yeah. I don't know if no, I don't believe so, because I had always, I had always enjoyed the small instrumentation. And in fact, when I first met my friend trio and we were playing opposite miles. Miles was starving even low card bad. And that guy's playing trigger at that time, so no, I think, I think the trio had been stemmed from the Clifford bag. Were you surprised how curious people found that idea of you just playing in that small trio, you based drums, like you did on way out west or night at the Vanguard. I hope that it would be received well. I think it was. I think it absolutely was. I mean, it's those seem to have really stood the test of time and an incredible way, but it's funny also just in a way how curious people find that it's like, oh, wow, you know, this piano less trio, you know? It seemed to sort of well, I always liked that. And that's why there's a great panic place. There's no reflection on planner, but I like the idea of just a rhythm section, and a lot of me to sort of be free. In a completely free, just compose things in my arm. In my own mind and create the harmonies and musical situations and just came to me, I had a rhythm behind me at the base had the drums to keep things moving. And I had the freedom to conceive of all of these things. So that's why I find like that had nothing to do with anything else. I got you. There's some wild plane on those records from you. And even some incredible, you know, even from the other cats, you know, like night at the Vanguard, there's a couple of basalts on that record that are great as well, you know? Yeah, I tried to get his guys worried the fray to probably what the heck piano. Yeah. A lot of times, you know, would be reticent to do that, rose, you know, crazy piano fits right in with the with a base, you know, like ham and eggs. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah. Wow. Piano jumps here. They fear his play. You know, guys can wake up in the middle of the night and drove you right in turn to the next note. So something which you know were somewhat of a challenge to them. It was Wilbur wear, by the way..

"To get off of drugs. Wow, I didn't know that. I had no idea. Yeah, well, that's part of their life that I'm living here. So actually, you know what? I got off a jokes. I didn't know what they need to know all of that, but it wasn't easy. It's very fascinating. Did you ever get a chance to tell Charlie that you got clean? Okay, well, what happened was this? There was a drug we have placed in directly Kentucky. It was the first place where it was like the Betty Ford clinic before the very four 20. And a lot of people were there. People that were into drugs, movie stars were there. We were treated like patients, not as criminals. Anyway, so I was there for the cure, the cure was I've been four months. I left election ten and 5, 5, 55. That's when I was doing whatever we were to call it. But the unfortunate maybe so maybe not. Part of it was Charlie Parker passed away one month before I got out of metric Kentucky. So I never got the chance to rich I was ready to do garden after 37 straight, Charlie or straight, man. I would convince him that he would know that I was just because I was so ashamed of lying to him earlier and that's record dates you just recall. So I was so anxious for this to happen. I would be able to see him and convince him that I was that I wasn't going to disgrace him anymore. But unfortunately, that was denied me. However, I do believe in things like the afterlife and knowledge. I think Charlie Parker knew wherever he was at, that I was trying to get my message. Yeah. No, definitely. And you know, really, when you think about it too, it's pretty great timing that you got clean in 55 because, I mean, in 56, your career is really insane you're output. I'm thinking about, you know, you do saxophone colossus, ten or madness, you do brilliant corners with thelonious, you do a lot of your work with the max roach and Clifford Brown, quintet, which is really incredible stuff is happening. I wanted to ask you that brilliant corners album with Thelonious Monk. That record really blows my mind when I listen to it. It's like spectacularly complex, especially that title track. Do you remember was that a tough session? It was a little different than the music that monkey play before as I remember the title of the tough music tough music. But everybody liked that record a lot. You know, they've mentioned that when you talk about monster accomplishments, did you enjoy playing on it? I think so. I think it was a hard record to make. You know, it's hard, everybody didn't get it the first first go around. But yeah, sure, it was playing with Mark bang with Mark was a legislation experience, whatever came out of it. And I had that experience and everybody liked that record a great deal. I know Ernie Henry another tenor player, he ended up leaving, I think one of the sessions and then Clark Terry came in to sort of play, did you ever feel like leaving? Oh, no, no, no. Maybe if they kicked me out, but I'm not leaving on my own. You're not quitting. They'd have to show me the door. There was a lot of great people on that record. I was there. Max roach, I believe, and Mark played the Chile. I forget everybody that was on the regular version it was great. You were a little different than some of the major kid then before. So it was quite a quite a landmark. Can you tell me about playing in the max roach Clifford Brown quintet with yourself and George morrow and Richie Powell? It sounds to me like you guys had incredible chemistry. Did it feel that way to you? At the time? And New York, but one that was the man with Clifford and he. It was different. It was right now. I was doing more. I think I played as a sideman or something like some retro macro to New York. But when I played with the band, that band it was really, I don't know. I'm glad I found it like that because I had a great experience playing with Clifford Brown and comfort was such a strange straight up guy with such a straight up player when the best players as we know. When I looked back today and I talked to different guys, all these young guys questioned bran was their favorite trumpet player. So he was quite a guy. But he was also a great person and I learned a lot from Clifford because Clifford was playing all of this music, but he was not a guy that was messing around with drugs. He wasn't that clear. Now, sir, I said to myself, wow, man, listen to all this music. He can play and he's not had nothing to do with his personal life. So you don't have to be a using drugs or drinking a lot. And even Red Dead, to players which means that they see that. And that was inspirational to me. And I really learned that it's a wow, man. That's such a good man. If it gets great, I'd like to do it. You don't need drugs to play. Yeah. So he was a graduate of good friends. I mean, you know, I was really close after he passed away when we were playing in the band and sometimes I channeled Clifford. I felt that man, what should we do right here? I mean, they told him like that by the music. Wow. And then he asked for me. And that went on for a while before they'd been broke up. Max had been Trump replaced. Of course, but that happened for a while and then after a while, I stopped channeling and let him go on his journey. His life journey, but I shall not have him for a long time. After he passed and then, you know, and we had to play the same music, a lot of the same music. We'll be right back with more from Sonny Rollins after a quick break.

"Lifetime is a difficult word since I believe in our nation. I accept women climate change. So maybe when you say it was a different lifetime, then to many country things surveyed to answer that or precisely. And I see what you mean. I was watching an interview did the other night in 1962 on Ralph gleason's show that I used to have jazz casual. You were the same age during the filming of that that I am now, you're 32. And you were referring to yourself as old in that taping. You refer to yourself as kind of like an old cat now. I'm curious what advice you might give yourself at 32 now. You know, I made so many mistakes in life. I've done some good things in life. You know, I was learning which was a learning experience. I think that was born a fairly positive pricing. You should call me the gesture for now your little boy. So in plain. So I think I had a positive personality. All through my life. You know, that's what we think and that's good, but things happen to us. We get tested in life. And it's a long trip. You know, and I've known so many people that didn't make it all the way. And terrible situations. I thought you were my friend, is a great drummer from Chicago named ache day. That flavor that day when I was in Chicago, I did 1949. He was strung out on drugs and I was sort of strong out of jobs and detained. So that was a different world, but it was one of those rivers I had to cross. So that it's hard to move back. You know, I made a lot of mistakes in life. I did some things in life which I like my music. I was already trying to get better, but as I said, I was advising afraid of trying to do something and playing with superior musicians and all that. No, you definitely. You know, I felt that I should be there. They wanted me to be there. We have to learn. We had to try to be the golden rule of all that just got to try to do it. We don't get it now. We have to try to again. Like the threat in the TV commercial pay me now or pay me later. I'm going to quote, I'm going to start quoting that. You got to get it right. You can't do anything and get away with it. Regard it get it right. You're not getting right now. You're going to get half a day later. Because you so see 70 things are very important to remember that what life is about. Life is to find out the reason for life, what does it mean? And that goes on a non man who knows how many lives we have to live. A billion trillion who knows, I don't know. But I know that you can't get it generally in one lifetime. Some people are really advanced that I've read in life, I say, wow, they're journey they know a lot more than I do. Then some people, I'm ahead of some other people and they're journeys. I'd say, well, I've learned some things this guy hasn't learned. This girl hasn't read. All of these things means something.

We're back with more from sunny Rollins. You know, I'm thinking about what you've sowed musically in that certainly is more and more than I think many people, you know, whatever contribute to one lifetime. And I was thinking about the year, particular 1956 for you, that year, you played a date with Miles Davis that included Charlie Parker. Do you remember that date? Oh yeah. Collector's items exactly. You played serpent's tooth. Did you interact with bird much on that session? Well, bird was not the one of my broads. So of course, there was a lot of other things happening on that particular session. And well, I guess I might as well say it. At the time, I was still on drugs. He said, I said, he said, I told him, I think he said, do you know how you doing? I think he might have bet my life together. And I tell him, oh, yeah, yeah, man. I'm doing good, you know? So I lied to him. I wasn't very good. And some guys in the band later on during the session ratted on me. They said, oh man, sunny is funny was I getting high with this last night. So anyway later on this, I shouldn't have to find out that I had lied to him. Notice something in him had the destroyed he was, had despondent, he was to know that head. And that just really I realized, man, bird was so involved that all of the young musicians tried to follow his music and his lifestyle. It was killing him. The drugs and all that. Yeah. Yeah, knowing that all these young guys were using drugs. It was killing you. It was killed during that sort of session. So you know what? I said, okay, that's it. Mercedes to myself, I'm going to get off the drugs and show Charlie Parker that he shouldn't be so down because some people are following his positive effect on their life, not in the negative effect, and that's when I made my decision.

"Hey everyone, today we're continuing our celebration of black music month with one of my all time favorites. Jazz legend, Sonny Rollins. Rollins is dubbed the saxophone colossus. He's an American tenor and composer who is widely regarded as one of the most influential jazz musicians ever. With several awards under his belt, a Grammy Award for lifetime achievement and the national medal of arts to name a few. Some even venture to call him the greatest living improviser. Sadly, now at 91 years old, Rollins no longer plays as a result of pulmonary fibrosis. But he is able to look back at an 8 decade career that took him all the way from the beginnings of bebop to plane with The Rolling Stones, and all over the world. On today's episode, I spoke to Sonny Rollins by phone about one of his first big gigs at 18, way back in 1949, playing alongside other jazz icons like bud Powell and fats Navarro. He also explains why he no longer actively listens to music. And for the first time ever, how Charlie Parker is the reason he kicked drugs. This is broken record. Liner notes for the digital age. I'm Justin Richmond. Here's my phone conversation with the great sunny Rollins. I want to talk about early in your career you're 18 years old in 1949. That was your first professional date. And the first that I can figure was with Babs Gonzales on St. Louis blues is that does that seem true? I know that began recording in the late 40s. I saw I would imagine that might be true. I said verify exactly. Do you remember Babs Gonzales? Pretty well? Oh, sure. Character. You know, yeah, I remember very well. I liked my playing a lot. And I used to make some of these gigs that graduated drivers had pile up the library users in the car and we go down to Philly. I would go up to Boston or president and immediate area. And hey, so I got a chance to play with some of my idols. I got a chance to play reflection of arrow. I want to bring that up the same year when you're still 18, you got to play on some pretty incredible bud Powell records where bouncing with bud, 52nd street theme, dance of the infidels. I mean, just real, real classics and you're playing on there with fats with fats Navarro, the amazing trumpet player. It's insane. Yeah, I know. I mean, I guess I had too many thoughts in my head to even stop and realize what I was doing. Yeah. Oh, but pretty nice. So this is I credit them jealous of doing that. Getting me in the latter is jobs. Faster than I think I'm sure that can't remember some of my best priorities around creating what somebody's jobs, and I was young, young cats, and my having that opportunity to partner with them was tremendous at 18 playing with people like blood pal and fats Navarro, were you nervous at all? Well, I was too stupid to be nervous. That might be a good thing. I always felt that if they wanted me there, she never should be there. I was never really one of these guys. Was your felt intimidated? I just felt reluctant. They want me to be here and then I'm just, you know, I guess I'm supposed to be here. So we're back, so I went on and did what I did. But it was certainly not on the level with JJ Johnson and all of these people that I was playing with when I was teenager. I mean, Roy Haynes, who we thankfully just like you, we still have around these days. He was on those bud Powell sessions as well. The drummer Roy Haynes, do you ever have the urge to call someone like that these days and just sort of confirm that these things actually happened? He was birthdays and overthrow them up and talk about things that we can both remember, so Roy had no way. We know we were much a young kid. We're going to be playing music. And we are moved up in our neighborhood upon the hill, a closet. We all knew them. I remember I was playing. We were last year. You must have loved Lester. I mean, I can imagine Leicester must have been an inspiration for you. God, you know, and we're so good to get to know us to yell and to know that less the young light to me. Because we used to be up in Lester's apartment at the average hotel. And guys would be lesser. Look at the window for some guys coming. Musicians, he would call that in third grade, no, say I'm not home. So here we are, a lot of people came to see him, but he didn't arrive, everybody. And he liked me like me natural is to come by there. And I got a greater friendship with her. It's a great prayer. And then gave me a lot of validation that I was doing something right. Yeah, absolutely. I'm realizing Roy has a birthday coming up in a few days here. So I guess you'll be probably calling him, huh? Oh yeah, I didn't know if cutting up the find out about it. And I will definitely call them definitely yeah. Yeah. Man, Roy will be 2097. You're 91 now. How long ago does an experience like that feel at this point? Does it even feel like it was in the same lifetime? Well, yes, it really is. Now, in a life that's a tough, tough question because lifetime means. Last week could be a different lifetime in a way of speaking. Yeah, sure. Absolutely. It's a different yes, but still it was a lifetime which I was involved in. So it's not that different. But our film is different in so many ways, definitely versus around different..

Take our food and you know we don't want to you know they're all these scottish maniacs. They will kill you to take our four bananas in the the cold ham sandwich so we starve and the singer hated us. 'cause we're from america and he'd go on stage like you kill the american anchors. We opened for chelsea. And i had those records to liked him and the singer. Like hey hey california. Hey mr america. Like what have i done to you. And so all these bands were really mean to us. Except the damned in the uk subs but all these bands who i had records of. Were just awful to us. And there's the spitting and when you're opening for a band they kind of don't like you like when you open for the dam. The audience wants to see one band.

But we're one is writing on your rise above greg american waist which is like. Let's burn america to the ground before they kill us.

Not Prosecuting Low-Level Crimes Leads To Less Crime In Boston's Suffolk County
"A first of its kind study of suffolk county criminal cases has found that declining to prosecute some low level offenses can actually lead to less crime. The study analyzed more than sixty seven thousand misdemeanor cases in boston winthrop revere chelsea from two thousand and four to two thousand eighteen and it found that people arrested but not prosecuted on low level. Non violent misdemeanors were fifty eight percent less likely to commit another crime in suffolk county in the following two years. So this was welcome. News to suffolk county district attorney. Rachel rollins who pledged to not prosecute more than a dozen these types of crimes. When she ran for office in two thousand eighteen. She joined us just a little earlier today to talk about how the findings of the study line up with her agenda. You took a risk right off the bat you became. Da and you made this data available to see what it would tell us knowing that you were advocating for non prosecution of some low level crimes. So tell us how you believe. This data supports your approach. First off yes. I think within two weeks of being inaugurated right after january. Second twenty nineteen A great group of of women came to me and said can we sift through all of your data. But you can't instruct us in any way we have to have full autonomy to find what we find in be able to state with transparency. What that is. will you do it. And i signed immediately and said absolutely and so what i think the shows us going back to two thousand and four is that what many progressive prosecutors have been saying is that we should be focusing our attention more on the violent serious crimes in when people come into contact for low level nonviolent crimes when we are compassionate and allow them to go along on with their lives if they have mental health disorders substance use disorder. Something else often. Don't come back into contact with the criminal legal system and we are safer as a result of that
Supreme Court to Hear Appeal of Ruling That Overturned Boston Marathon Bomber's Death Sentence
"Radio boston. I'm donna deering and we start today with another major development in the country's largest drug lab scandal suffolk. County district attorney. Rachel rollins says that her office could vacate up to tens of thousands more criminal convictions. That were based on drug evidence tested at the now closed hinton lab. Wbu our senior correspondent. Deborah becker is reporting on the story. Deb joins us now dead. Welcome back to radio boston. Thanks for having me so deb. D. rollins is proposing to vacate any drug convictions based on results. From the hinton lab from may two thousand three to august two thousand twelve why that nine year time window will. That was the time period when two chemists worked at the hinton lab at the same time. Any dukan and sony ferrick you may remember. Both women were convicted on charges of tampering. With the drug evidence they were supposed to be testing fair conviction though stemmed from her work at the state lab in amherst but both women worked at the hinton lab. At one time. Eric worked there before she went to amherst. Rollin says what's needed is a more thorough review of all the drugs certifications that came from the hinton lab wild. Both women were working there. She calls the drug lab scandal. Systemic misconduct and a catastrophic failure of management that she says needs a complete review so all the testing done at that lab during that time should be looked at and we should point out that after both chemists were convicted tens of thousands of criminal drug convict. Convictions were dismissed because of their misconduct. We're talking about more. Give us a sense of scale here. Deb how many people might this effect will will. There's no precise number but rollins office says is that the hinton lab certified almost eighty three thousand drug samples for evidence during that time and that was in suffolk county and the massachusetts supreme judicial court which has reviewed various challenges and calls for a way to deal with all of the cases in both labs has vacated thousands of convictions based on the testing and hidden lab alone about eight thousand from hinton so the remaining seventy four thousand drug certifications that rollins talking about from suffolk county. She says her office is going to review all of those and they could be part of what she says is a global resolution to deal with these cases once and for all and thousands more convictions could be erased. But there's no exact number because one drug certification could have several drug certifications could have been done for one case so. The exact number is unclear. Got it got it. But it's it's a lot to review. So how does it work are they. Are they essentially starting deb with the assumption that all the convictions must be vacated and then working backward from there as they review the cases. How are they gonna do this well. She says she's going to convene robin says. She's going to convene a summit next month with the defense bar to start this review look at every affected case all the drugs certifications and determine next steps and she says any relief in what she's calling her hinton lab initiative is only for controlled substances convictions. And if someone was charged with something else along with drug use or possession or whatever the drug charges may have been those charges withstand this would only be drug charges in a particular case and then after that they would look at expunging records. If need be it would be a very lengthy complicated process. So our defense attorneys reacting to this well The aclu the american civil liberties union of massachusetts which was the agency really primarily involved in fighting with the s sjc to try to get some sort of resolution for many of these cases that were based on evidence tested at the hinton lab and at the amherst lab. It says it is. It's pleased that rollins has done. This here is matt siegel whose legal counsel for the aclu of massachusetts certainly would our preference and the preference of the public defenders are law firm partners for all of these cases have been dismissed when we first started calling for that step in twenty twelve. There's a saying about the arch of justice and At this point were very glad that seems to be bending in the right direction. I think as referring there to the you know the arc of the moral universals long but it bends toward justice but regardless also the State criminal defender agency. The committee for public counsel services released a statement after They heard about rachel rollins initiative the hidden lab and it also said that. It's pleased that this is happening. And it hopes that other district attorneys will do the same. So will they deb. Do you think we'll other. Da's follow suit. And i guess. I'm wondering if somehow this forces their hands if they have to. Now i don't think anyone necessarily

"The last part is accurate. But what the idea of you know. I was so so into it so going you know i took it so seriously the it it was the its downfall in a way which basically makes me. No you went through. Experience is called philosophy. The death of god and the irony. Is that probably the moment that you left. Christianity was probably the most christian event the year have that was. That was kind of the moment where you identified with christ on the cross might go. Oh my god why forsaken me so that the strange dialectical moment of the moment when you left with the moment when you were there a friend of mine actually. He's very very great guy by militant guy in a sense of very committed. He wrote this parable when he left. Cristiano gordon might have heard this parable. But he basically was driving in belfast. How this almost like a waking dream and it's worry went up to have him after he died He's he's out the pearly gates anson. Peter reuben's the gates and welcomes all fill there. You are unfilled like justified stab the threshold into have him and he looks behind him and he sees people are outside. he can't get in a says. some of them are my friends. I knew them. Some of them are religions yet theus humanist buddhist whatever some of them says i gold knows what right and he says to send peter. What about these guys vincent. Peter says i'm sorry man you know it's only the right ones you know and phil down there. And he says he had this moment where he says what's my reference point and he said my reference point is christ the friend of the ice cider. The the the drunks the nobody's the nothing's the one who who was the nobody the nothing. And he says peter king what. I'll just stay here with them. And the parable lands with phil saying am i swear. I can see a smile on some peter's face and he said up last two. That was this moment where the very moment when you reject is the very moment that you enter in fascinating. Can i tell you one final powerball. I like this one on this one. This one's got the trip of everything that we've talked about. If you if you understand this story you understand everything. I've got to louisville one guy. He's a dawn on his loss. Job he doesn't have very much money. Left is a very pious ma very pious months. He's praying i am i gonna do. I wanna lose the highest terrible. And he hears a voice from heaven clear as day. Like abraham right says she s. I want you to sail the little. You have and i want you to go to vegas. Just so we he pies money obeys god sales as few possessions gets a few ground together. Goes off to vegas guest of vegas and god says go into the first casino. Sit dine play. How the texas holdem go can. I don't really know how to play very much with best grills but he does in sits at a table. There's a full table tan people. I'm he gets dealt seven to off. Terrible home goes rhine. People are battling and he's going to. He's going to fool than he hears a voice from heaven. God's as don't fall bat so he bets flop comes queen. Jack like nothing useful to is gonna fooled. People are batting. God says bats put it all in so sheamus pushes all his money in on. It goes rhine and then on the turn in the river. He gets to saban's so he's got a sad. He wins his own. My i don't. I don't believe that he hears his voice hand. From god's right take your winnings go to the relatable are very good at the blackjack table so she comes to the blackjack and he says right put it all on wong honda blackjack and gm stores and he gets dealt like sixteen all right. What am i going to do a better stick years voice from god saying. Don't stick ask for another card so we asked for a car to yet teen my goodness he attained right. I'm gonna stick. God says no. Take another car. What another cardamom. The obtain is another car. Takes another card and assists three and he's hits twenty one wins and then finally then years another voice voice. God's says right tig all molly good table. Could everything number five and like this is really tasked 'cause it's called faira amount of money and is it all on five dollars a pious man. It's all money on five bull rules being Binds and hits the five he wins and turns the heavens the heavens he says i can't believe it. I just don't believe it was incredible. And he hears god say he says i don't believe it either. You're the luckiest bastard. I've ever seen my dad. The thing about that story is that that copters the heart of power theologies. His that we think that you know everything's contingent on in this world. But god's got it all under control but what if the central insight of the crucifixion is. That contingency is built into goal wail on the actually. The answer to existence is to realize that contradiction on conflict. Unlock also moving into the absolute and when we encounter that which is the crucifixion experience gordon. We're talking about the moment where he experienced. This loss is exactly when you encounter the reality of the obsolete who also experienced that loss because the point of crucifixion is gold experiences. The loss of god. So that very moment you are an expression of the truth everytime you tell a parable pair. I felt like maybe it's your accent or maybe it's just the way that you tell the stories but it always just makes me think it gives me a new way of thinking about the power of parables isn't it that it disrupts your way of thinking. And you think that the story's going one way and then it slips it on its head. I mean parables i i love as you. I love hearables. Because they've got a joke like structure and some of them. of course they can be funny because a joke. Basically works on a creative misinterpretation going one or another on but also than in an awful way and so parables have this great ability to to subvert to kind of go against your expectation but yet reveal something deeply tree in not in knock dialectical move. So yeah so that story that i told you. It's a new. I mean it's an old story. I've heard it. As a joke said madman i was a kid maybe but only recently that i realize that there is something actually very insightful by dot structure. That's what she's means when he talks about Type of a type of Super positioning within reality itself on. Hegel the philosopher. Hegel the reason why he loves christianity so much. He thought christianity. Express this dialectic in in pictorial form. So it was for him just before philosophy. Philosophy was the highest for him and then and then christianity was was kind of blew up but it was because he said oh this notion of god experiencing the death of god of the eternal in the temporal coming together of these contradictions. Being mold together in a body dot dot expression is an insight into the nature of reality and it was actually freud who then developed up because the symptom is the incarnation of a contradiction. As a safe. You're if you're if you're grinding your taste. It might be because you wanna scheider somebody and you wanna keep quiet because you do want to break up with him on. The symptom is the the incarnation of the contradiction. And yes. so you know these. These are all kind of interconnect out of it. It's like a little mental exercise that you challenge. Today i went off when i listened to. Why would call an expert in anything. They always do that. They'll give you the information on because you're not really looking at this very often. You don't actually pushback. You know really engage in public even though you can be nodding your head along. Yup i agree with that is a really good until will push push your brain. So shortly were How do i think about this. Why do i think this is going. What do i think the meaning of this before. I even revealed is I think that's the power of a parable. I've never really experienced that before. Which is interesting. Almost twenty five. And i feel like i probably should have. It's a dying. It's it's terrible dying art. I mean i don't know why there's not more parable speakers accelerate care who was a grip. Parable tell her about. It's a it is great. Form of of of of sandra nelson and getting to think there's not enough good parables in have to say so you and you hit the nail on the head whenever care gore. Tokes truth being subjective. What he kind of means is the truth is not something you can be taught metaphysical not something you're taught it's it's.

Interview with Thriller Writer Avanti Centrae: S. 6, Ep. 13 - burst 02
"Tell us about the van ops series you've been compared to authors like hand brown and clive tessler so action packed. Might be a good word for it. Yeah action packed. Yes a lot of readers have said. They're literally glued to the edge of their seats. I've had people tell me. They are holding their breath and and that's fantastic. Yeah the other two authors that. I'm often compared to our james rollins and steve berry. So it's small smart pulp fiction. It's filled with intrigue in history and science and mystery kind of all wrapped up in a nonstop action package. Yeah i was gonna say I started writing down what your book was like the first one that i said like a travel guide with an adventure story plus mysticism mystery artifact hunting and spycraft. Pretty much encapsulates it. Yeah there's always overachiever. Yeah i've always been an overachiever. And yeah i. I like to Provide readers with their money's worth as i'm a reader to and i like books that are richly textured with characters that jump off the page. You know and And i've always enjoyed History and and traveling and cruising to places around the world and wanted to include all of that in my books. Well you've done very well with that. I mean you've done a great job. Because the same way i was kind of on the edges might see reading your there. And you're protagonist is medi. Who is nike no expert. I thought that was really cool. What inspired you create this particular character. Yeah that's an insightful question. Debbie and i also liked erica johnson. In in your. Yeah i read. I just read damaged goods and really enjoyed her to matty They they both meditate. Actually it was kind of interested to see that Your character is dealing with some deep emotional stuff and uses meditation as a way to to deal with that and matty's got a little bit more of a pedestrian background than erica does so matty has been an app designer for her job She was an almost olympic athlete. So she's got some physical skills and since high school. She's enjoyed akito. And the reason that i chose akito is because i see a lot of books in our genre where the protagonist is almost callous. Oh and bang ahead to shoot somebody again. Oh well well. I wanted somebody. That will is more morally conflicted about having to use violence. And i thought what's a better conflict because great stories all about great conflict right so what's better than having somebody who is morally opposed to violence being shot at by russian snipers i thought that would be a wonderful setup and and it turned out really good. The theme of that whole first book is is around. You know violence enforce and what's appropriate to us and what's in our culture so i also like having you know bigger themes in my work to yeah fun to explore.
