IF THE MOON CAN BE SEEN FROM THE EARTH, IT MUST BE PERCEIVED AS SUCH. IT'S PHYSICAL BODY LIKE A MOTHER.

INTRODUCE A DISTURBANCE INTO YOUR ENVIRONMENT : AN ASTEROID, A PEBBLE DROPPED IN A POND, A BEAM OF LIGHT CUTTING THROUGH TREES. DUST SETTLING.

 

 FROM WHERE WE STAND, WE SEE HOW IT'S FORM CHANGES. RUST-COLOURED STARS DANCE IN DARK GLIMMER. SELENE'S GLEAM PULLS US IN LIKE JEWELLED INSECTS,
DEVOTED.  

 

I DREAMT I LOOKED THROUGH A TELESCOPE AND SAW DISTINCT WAVES THAT EBBED AND FLOWED IN THE SAME DIRECTION AS BREATH, OUR BODY A MECHANISM TAKEN FOR GRANTED. AS WE SIT AROUND THE TABLE TOGETHER, WE AGREE THAT WITH EVERY LUNAR CYCLE THERE COMES
RENEWAL. 

 

A RENEWAL THAT IS ELEMENTAL AND SEEN BY EVERYTHING : THE DEITIES, THEIR DRAPED DRESSES, THE LEGENDS BORN IN COVES, FLAMES, US.
IT'S CLOSER THAN YOU MIGHT IMAGINE. THERE IS NO FANCIFUL FAIRY TALE TO BE FOUND HERE, ONLY BEAUTY AND TRUTH FROM THE SHADOW OF THE MOON THAT MOVES WITH YOU, GRAVE MAGIC.
