Dedicated to the memory of my late friend Nabil.
"There are friends I still remember
Though time and tide have left their tell
And still the one thing that I wish for
Is that, my friend I wish you well
Let all those dreams that went before us
Like all those plans that never were
In a life that spun out of our control
Lost in the unplanned thin...
"Every day I get closer to our meeting
I feel like I’ve been walking this path for a thousand years
and yet I’m still not there
So close, and yet so far still
But I keep walking
There’s only one direction
I keep walking
because behind every sun’s setting is a rising
behind every storm is a refuge
behind every fall is a rise
and behind every te...

This mix celebrates a life milestone. Now that I'm 40, I look back in appreciation of every period of my life that has shaped who I am. What seemed like hardship was a necessary lesson in retrospect, and a step in a grand plan to get me here. Here is a place where I feel content, with a clearer Purpose. Creating these mixes is part of it. It's...
"Take me to your dreamland
A place where we can be forever
As our bones crumble to dust
Our souls will astray
Into your dreamland
Away from endless pain
Our hearts will be mended
Our minds will be found
Let us live for the moment eternally"
― Take Me to Your Dreamland by ok okay
Gratefulness and humility are two qualities that elevate humankind. Combined, they cushion our falls in life. Because in a way, they help us "fall upwards", such that our hardships become catalyst for ever greater appreciation of blessings we once had, and ones we continue to have. When we let go of entitlement, we develop a sense of awe towar...
"One autumn day I was in the park. Absorbed in the contemplations of a very small, beautiful leaf 🍁. Shaped like a heart, it was barely hanging on the branch, nearly ready to fall down. I asked the leaf if it was frightened because it was autumn and the other leaves were falling.
The leaf told me, “No. During the whole spring and summe...
"imagine, the time when we all learn the art of living
rather than just continuous breathing
there'll be no more lies
there'll be no more cries
we'll all have our sun shining through
and we'll look at the same skies of blue
peace will be at hand
wave farewell to the terror of the nights
terminated are the painful fights
For there will be no mo...
"In each of us
There once was a fire
And for some of us
There seem as if there are only ashes now
But when we dig in the ashes
We find one ember
And very gently we fan that ember
Blow on it
It gets brighter
And from that ember we rebuild the fire
Only thing that's important is that ember
That's what you and I are here to celebrate
The ember ge...
"Cold and drifting,
nothingness and floating,
swimming through zero gravity,
A thought emerges slowly,
drudging through the whale's mind.
"What is this..?"
This lonesome earth is not my home
I'm just wanderin' through
I'm waiting on my chariot ride
To home beyond the blue.
What splendor there awaits!"
― From Final Thoughts of a Whale in Space ...
This mix is an ode to one of my favorite ambient mix series of the same name by Alex Hephaestian. Themed around highlighting ethnic ambient music from around the world, Alex's mix series (which you can stream on Mixcloud) shows such mastery in combining exquisite mixing and mystical storytelling. It chronicles the journey of Oushie who travels...
"When you fall in love with a work of art, you’d die to meet the artist.
I am a student of the galleries of Pacific sunsets, full moon rises on the ocean, the clouds from an airplane, autumn forests in Raleigh, and first fallen snows.
And I’m dying to meet the artist."
Poetry by Yasmin Mogahed, from her book Reclaim Your Heart
"The sun is so beautiful in the early morning. It does something to the trees that you don’t see any other time of the day. I think we all want the same thing: A quiet peace. Maybe just even a single moment of it, to close our eyes and just be okay. For even a single second, to not feel worried about something, sad about something. To not crav...
This mix is inspired by heal., a magnificent meditative album by the talented man behind Project AER. He usually produces heartfelt lofi music, but when he turns to ambient, his work lives up to that of the best you've ever heard.
"What's meant for you will be
The rest will fade away
Just give it time and see
That some things just can't...
To Chris, in celebration of his birthday, life, and legacy. He would have been 37 today (Jan 13). Less than a year ago, his passing was our rebirth. It imbued me, his sister and his family with a sense of duty to live out his legacy. The life that he could have had. The life he would have wished for us. Rest in peace my friend.
"So it begins m...
As 2021 comes to a wrap, it feels like we should be seeing the pandemic off, but the reality is anything but. With more imposed restrictions coinciding with the holiday season, I released this mix to hopefully provide solace to those celebrating alone or unable to spend it with some of their loved ones.
Musically, this mix features 3 tracks fr...
It's my 39th birthday today :) 🎂
Inspired by the soothing music of Human Is Alive (humanisalive.bandcamp.com), I wanted this mix to induce reminiscence of happy moments from our past. Amidst the swirl of incessant, attention-demanding world we live in, I sometimes get these fleeting recollections of past events, people, or e...
"In the shadow of a moonlight gaze
a cold and misty type of haze
washes over me as if my soul
has left and made me half, not whole
as night envelops everything around
the darkness heaps its magic on the ground
as features change and dampness marks its place
a pleasing smile appears upon my face
I love ...
