this is how it was:
in the beginning we were born
like everyone else,
eyes shut
and gasping for air.

we wanted to hear the sound of wings
through the open window, as if the world
was moving again and might (at any moment)
sweep us away to places we had never been.

today was a color of sunlight
you’d want to paint your skin with.

revel in the worth of others,
so you can recognize the worth of yourself.

thedustdancestoo:

there is a part of my mind and soul
that pulls whenever
i open a book,
a need
and desire
to dive headfirst into the pages,
to plunge and drink and chew
on its words and ink,
to come out feeling (something)
like my skin
has been changed,
beautifully stained
by the story.

thedustdancestoo:

i like the world at dusk
when everything is buoyant
and a little bashful,
like the warm air between us
when we smile
and look away
waiting for fireflies
to speak.

i hold you tonight. paper lanterns
above the tree line, scintillating and ascending;
incandescent suns passing through space
together.

thedustdancestoo:

the universe is infinite;
you can feel it
when you gaze into the light
and when you close your eyes.
there’s something beautiful
beyond the stars, worlds
we will never know,
and the same beneath.
perhaps you should be told again
the worth of what’s inside?
to press your hand to your skin
and feel it,
to know that you have always
deserved to be found;
and that even alone
you are absolute
and perfect.

Hey everyone! I just wanted to let you all know that I will be directing a movie this summer (which I also wrote). It’s my thesis film: a short sci fi drama called RESONANCE.

The film focuses on an astronaut who returns to Earth after a year in space, only to find his wife has died. In his grief he becomes obsessed with a frequency from a dying nebula, which he thinks might have a hidden message inside.

Please spread the love, we want all the fans we can get as we roll into production, because that motivates us even more to make something awesome.

If you want you can LIKE the facebook page and support the film that way, and we will be launching an official website soon. New movie posters are going to be released soon, as will a teaser, concept art, and casting news.

Thanks, and I hope you are as excited for it as I am!
