LITTLE BLACK MAGNETS IN A SEA OF BLUE

2013

Isn’t it funny how everyone has that little voice inside their head? And how that voice talks with you, back and forth, all day long? Just a tiny little dialogue from a tiny little voice. Sometimes it’s a delusional rant, but other times, it takes spectacular shapes of pure honesty between you and, well, yourself. These bits and pieces define what we see and perceive as humans. And we saw plenty on our trip to the Caribbean, but the perception, well, that’s up to you…

Not a bad way to go.

The water was so blue it felt like a lava lamp. Trip on that, man: surfing on liquid blue lava.
