INTRODUCTION FROM NIC ASKEW, THE FILM MAKER
Morgan spent many successful and raucous years playing in major rock bands. He gave it up. And then one day on an express train from Osaka to Kyoto he was hit by the awareness of something so simple. So simple yet so profound that it’s quite possible that he might have missed it altogether.
THE FILM QUESTIONS
One / ‘Might you be clutching at what came before?’
Two / ‘Have you the courage to shut one door and wait for the next to open?’
Three / ‘How often are you left with room for nothing else? Not even the glimmer of a thought?’
Four / ‘What if you were to dedicate yourself to this moment, and this moment only?’
