trance

 


i watched with near-morbid fascination as he scattered the burning coconut husks with his bare feet. his face showed no fear, but a different sort of emotion: glee.

such a different countenance from when he first came out.

as the fire slowed down a bit, one of the performers squirted some fuel onto the husks, and the fire sprang back to life, perhaps with a bit more vengeance. he got just as excited.

meanwhile, the rest of the performers watched with casual nonchalance at the infernal spectacle unfolding just a few feet away from them.

tradition

ketjak


a mesmerizing dance, created from elements of the sanghyang exorcism and portions of the ramayana epic.

now i know where the soundtrack for the anime version of akira got its inspiration from hehe (although the gamelan portions in some parts of the soundtrack are dead giveaways).

second chances, or reflections

reflections


taken at the bird park last sunday.

didn't really think much about this picture when i looked at it on the miniscule lcd screen of the d70. i actually thought that an earlier shot of the same bird was better.

boy, was i wrong.

luckily, i decided to delete the 'rejects' only after viewing them on my laptop.

i guess we should always give a picture more than one look, before really chucking it out the window.

especially when viewing it under not so favorable conditions.

life seems to present us with many similar situations, where an opportunity may not really appear to be favorable or preferable when we first look at it. perhaps, our emotions judged more than our rationale did.

quite similar to viewing a picture on a small 1.7-inch screen, don't you think?

if given the time and space, we should reflect on the opportunity again. aspects that were hitherto hidden, may suddenly present themselves, giving more meaning to the opportunity.
