Clair de Lune Speak. (softly) Look. (carefully) Breathe. (deeply) For the sun rises over a hill, and a fog is lifted from the river's swell. Notice laughter between your teeth, and touch the salt stained dream with your scarred fingertips. Feel the dirt between your toes, pebbles beneath calloused pads, and run through the rain. (heart beat)

Banjo by Kevin Ealain

Stop. (taste the air) Run. The texture of life is soft; Fall.

Kevin Ealain is a writer, actor, and photographer out of Minneapolis, MN. He’s always felt that this quote by Baudelaire sums up his approach to life: “You have to always be drunk. That’s all there is to it – it’s the only way. So as not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks your back and bends you to the earth, you have to be continually drunk. But on what? Wine, poetry, or virtue, as you wish. But be drunk.”
