In the thick of the night, with your eyes closed tight, a dark figure approaches... but don't worry, he won't bite. That is, at least not with his teeth. It's The Sandman and he's come to bring you a dream. As he enters the tangled web of your slumbering mind, will he render your hallucinations cruel or kind? Will you be lifted from sleep wishing it all came true, or will you rouse in cold sweat feeling black and blue? He feeds off your inner hopes and fears, though the line between dream and nightmare is not always clear. As he envelops your brain with glowing grains, and choreographs your imagination's midnight dance, will you be able to tell the illusory difference?
Once upon a Saturday... Onyx, Goldie, & Luma took a whimsical trip to Wonderland... They loaded their chariot up with tutus, glitter, feathers, beads, and gems and took off into the sunset. Tonight, they were nocturnal.
The night unleashes the most beautiful of creatures. One of which the three girls encountered, dancing in the streets, illuminated by the moon and passing headlights. Her swift gestures said it all. Naturally, she went by the name of... Smooth Jazz.
She even had a bit of MJ in her. Smooth Jazz can't help but stop traffic.
Of course the flower children came out to play as well, to twirl their magic wands and hoops.
Peace & Love
As we contemplate our existence as people of the sun, we discover that the ray of day is not the sole source of illuminating energy. Just as much light can emerge from the night. As we adapt to the darkness, our nocturnal impulses awake from within. We follow the twilight path, til the drums of our ears begin to pulse to a faint beat and the pupils of our eyes widen towards a distant flickering. With the guidance of our sensory instincts, we become entranced by the night. As bass thickens and luminosity sharpens, vibrations spiral through the labyrinths of our ears while light ricochets through the portals of our eyes. As the wavelengths of sound, the pirouettes of light, and the rhythm of our bodies align, we revel in the stimulation of our souls. Rhythmatic movements in unison with others. The ultimate seduction.
something for your mind, your body, and your soul
it's the power to arouse curiosity
the purpose, the goal with which one acts on
a journey of force
hot like the sun
and wet like the rain
rhythmatic movements in unison with others
acts of sensation with no limits or boundaries
eternity is past, wrong is right
it's the point of greatest intensity
A month an a half later, I'm still unable to shake this island fever ;) Oh, how I miss the sandy shores of Hawaii, which melt into an epic blueness from sea to sky. I thought I'd post a couple more pictures from my trip to reminisce a bit about the good times! There were just so many captured memories, I didn't want them to go to waste.
