I found it to be boring and pointless. I didn't care for the drug and alcohol use, and I'm not interested in hearing someone's perspective on life through a drunken haze. Aug 10, Jelila Jelila rated it it was amazing Shelves: I found as I was reading Mystic Fool, I became lighter too. Mystic Fool's lightness perfectly captures the joy of youthful travellings in an unknown and lost journey through the paradises of Asia, and the writer charts both the craziness and stress that arise with such journeys - running out of money, panic about visas, staying in awful rooms - and the lyrical divine interludes that also just naturally occur, in those oh so beautiful white sand palm-fronded and crystal watered beaches of Thailand, Laos et al.
It also does, perfectly capture the sense of freedom and joi-de-vivre of The Fool character from the Tarot and for me, perfectly evokes that picture of the divine idiot with his knotted kerchief on a stick, gaily going forth humming a song to who-knows-where to seek his fortune and to discover who-knows-what - simply put - to Adventure!! To leave the 'daily grind' - that so many unknowingly live for so much of their lives, and to have the courage to leave what is also 'safety and stability' to explore something a little more exotic.
Andy Hill charts the journey through drugs n' alcohol towards discovering meditation, and finding a spiritual practise that ends up getting him more of a sense of inner balance and peace. He weaves in his experiences - often very funny as he personally gets to grips with various spiritual ideas and methods, interprets the Tarot in the light of who he is and what he discovers, and weaves all that into his story, in a very charming and amusing way, which ultimately, becomes a love story.
If you love travel adventure books - for example 'The Beach', if you like Kerouac and the 'Dharma Bums' or 'On the Road', 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' or even 'The Grapes of Wrath' or 'Confessions of an Opium Eater' - enjoy stories of mystic fools that 'move you' - or if you are simply planning to travel through Southern Thailand, Bangkok, Siem Reap, Hanoi, Vietnam, Laos, or indeed, Asia - this is a great book to pack into your backpack or download to read on the journey - the perfect relaxing beach read with an inspiring, uplifting and entertaining spirit.

You could say there's multitudes of white washing in some parts, add some superficial mystical exoticism that often adds nothing to the content and a rather 'realistic but redundant' dialogues with very minimal characterization and lack of subtle plot made the reading process almost borders on tolerable if not for the short length. Its not a bad book if you wouldn't mind enjoying these kind of books.
Los Angeles: The Mystic Fool Needs Bloodline Healing
If you are a South East Asian, better skip this one. More a fantasy novel for the dreamy escapist tourist types. Although the sound of the ensemble carries on from Angel , there is a new found freshness and content. Some of the pieces let go and run wild, some are restrained, some are musical mantras repeated over and over into trance. He has a vision and type of restraint that I have not heard anywhere and is perfect in understanding and contributing to the play as it happens.
Matt McMahon has been making music with me for 10 years and his inventive, lyrical touch and deep musicianship is magic. Bassist Karl Dunnicliff has been with us for 4 years now and is a strong shining element of the group. Melancholic piece with interweaving passages, hope mixed with triumph and sadness. Flamenco-esque chord progression with Oud stating the melody before allowing solos for Clarinet and Piano. On the Arabic mode Nawa Athar , it follows a similar modal progression like the opening track.
The clarinet is soulful and full of longing and the Oud plays with more traditional phrasing. The Piano grounds the piece in a type of mantra with the repeated passages staying the same while the Oud, Clarinet and Bendir weave in and out of the sonic space.

Starts with an Oud Solo setting up a riff which makes way for the clarinet and then the Piano. The bass is bowed adding a drone, sounding like a Didjeridu at times before moving into pizzicato and taking of the riff, allowing the Piano to take a more chordal role.
