2015. Re: Capitoli Arts Festival Re:Defining
by Bridget Modema·
It all started in a hotel, it was like a movie played out, while creating my own reality several small events happened throughout the day that made this movie gain so many punch lines and so many unexpected visits. While I am getting on cloud 9 in room 10 standing on the balcony accompanied by 2 friends we discuss the world for 3 perspectives, from all around us as well as above and below. This discussion lead on to form the day, to form the worlds illusions of your own manifestation, the question on all of our minds was, is this real, or is this an illusion? It was like I was stepping one foot in and out of these two realities. My mind experienced bliss. Leaving the hotel at night I arrive by an art gallery, my brother standing with a cup of coffee, he looks lighter like a heavy weight was removed and all I wanted to do was run up and hug him, hold him forever, there he was, my brother, I finally get to have my brother by my side. I was no longer alone and even without speaking a word everything made sense, everything was clairvoyance. I have a family. We stayed till the gallery closed down. When I started pouring two wine bottles like it was a cocktail mix I realized I was in such complete joy I forgot where I was, quickly placing the bottle back on the table I giggled at myself, because what does it matter where I am, after all it was my own movie, my own reality. In and out and in and out of the two realities. A bunch of us; artists, friends, collectors, (aliens) ended up going to a Craft Beer restaurant later that night. I just took a seat when I get a tap on my shoulder, its Bernice. Just when I thought no more surprises could ever top my current state of mind. My friend that I haven't seen in 3 years smiling at me with her arms wide open. She had a little experiment in her tummy. My mind was blasting with questions that finally simmered into the void as I realized, it is now, the present, that is what matters, no where else, but right here. This is the magick, this is life as we know it.
