"LOVEFEAST" started as an online group on social media that I utilized to express my theological, philosophical and political views with the like-minded and the truth-seekers. I had thought to incorporate the concept of a "Lovefeast" into OrKa Odyssey's songwriting projects, because the mystical communal elements interested me very much, but the opportunity just didn't present itself until I was forced to reinvent the group/act. I feel like "LOVEFEAST" represents who we are, and especially who I am, and what I want to achieve on a metaphysical level with creative expression. I also believe the term/moniker itself is quite attractive. It makes you think about love/Love and food. It has deep connotations, but it can also be very simple. The basic needs and sometimes wants of the life experience: love and food. Spiritual and physical nourishment. "Simple and deep", as Rev. Fred Rogers would have put it. We have posted a poem below that I wrote, and we feel that it may express the idea(s) of "LOVEFEAST" best - aside from the music itself, of course!
