  • Waking Dream
    process is impossibly long from Inventors to Philosophers and every pursuit of man that lies between the two In deeper spirituality you will find people who have learned to induce that state as a tool The scent of clove and prayer mixed with wood smoke In a synchronous response several cocks crowed in unison I was on Bali In the stillness soft breathing and a cocoon of warmth lay turned towards me And slowly I slid out from under a cool sheet and in the dark found clothes camera and lenses In moments I was roof top 40 feet above all else around our home stay in Ubud Bali Ubud is a hilltop city Our building was one of the taller ones apparently which offered an aerie from which to peer out on East West North and Southern horizon points From that spot it seemed as if you could reach the firmament visually Roughened concrete under foot the weight of my Canon 5DM2 and L series lens hanging from my apish human form I moved into a waking dream and watched As the eastern horizon began to lighten slightly the flow began as all creation within a 360 degree sphere were considered as elements for a possible composition Imaging is not much different than creating music It is probably just how mankind was wired originally to assemble and focus energies And for two hours I played in the swirling light read the shifts and saw what I had in my dreams Onto a digital palette it went a waking dream Firmament I have no illusions about myself nor what my role is in the world As I finished up under the weight of the morning chorus a work written as a result of experiences in Seychelles came to mind Such was the experience this daybreak Michael Kew is am amazingly perceptive writer His words follow You defiled your sanctuaries by the multitude of your iniquities Ezek 28 18 And He said to them I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven Luke 10 18 Anachronistic Tableau Pulsating it rose in crescendo and veered to a different timbre The melody soaked into the scene resonating from the light with hues more potent than the notes themselves Lifting dropping coalescing in vibrancy like a climactic omen The place quivered in unison before and beneath Instantly a small vestige of shadow appeared in the color Bright white burst into silence and all fell in awe as He exhaled expelling the source of that orgasm of sound The seething flameball arced through the heavens swift as lightning rolling in a thunderous shriek of anger shock and pain Its source reeked of a new emotion hate Writhing and steeped in spite with remnants of glory and brilliance spinning off into the darkness strata of divine obedience and empyreal beauty redeemed from Lucifer s being His transgression No tempter for him no blame only one to account for and to And his body touched the cold

  • Bali Journal 6: Gusti Gathering
