Ready for some harmony To be happening happening happening to me A love that can make the flowers sing And knows how to get the red rose ringing But do the stars lie? Are they just a mess in the sky? I don’t know why oh why Only lonely misery I’m a love magnet with reverse polarity Half-finished bad poetry And I don’t believe that this is my destiny I’m a love magnet but not the kind I want to be I want to pull you pull you pull you close to me The wild briar bending in the breeze Smiles under the glinting sun And like the briar I’m bent upon my knees But in the darkness, apart from everyone Oh do the stars lie? Are they just a mess in the sky I wonder why oh why Only lonely misery I’m a love magnet with reverse polarity Half-finished bad poetry I just don’t think that the stars are aligned for me Its less romance, feels more like obscenity But I want to pull you pull you pull you close to me Sometimes I feel like I was made in error And against my better judgment I still care I suspect my nature is unfinished Only lonely misery Half finished bad poetry I’m a love magnet with reverse polarity And I don’t believe that this is my destiny I’m a love magnet but not the kind I want to be I want to pull you pull you pull you close to me

Lips 2 lips mirror-like Shooting light like a star Silver moon unsteady Swinging deliciously Drink it up with your tender breath St. Valentine’s sweet oxygen The glowing moon is red on faces Now stop and smell my roses Easy brilliant natural without life together, forever and ever Easy brilliant natural without life together, forever and ever And heaven knows is this moonglow, or is it you? Looking through all our secrets It's shatterproof tenderness And counting all of the eyelashes We’ll save em to make a wish Heaven knows, is it moonglow or is it you? I feel pretty drunk, pour more please, or warn me Will you go out there? I have come to you How long will it be? Forever and ever Meanwhile kiss Lips to lips lips to lips Mad glance happiness Happiness happiness Count two earthly bipeds on shatterproof glass The visible secrets of tenderness And heaven knows is it moonglow, or is it you? (Read on the roses that spread on sweet faces, Counting eyelashes for kissable wishes) I feel pretty drunk, pour more please, or warn me (Feathers unfettered you whisper to look, gaze to gaze lips to lips) Easy brilliant natural without life together forever and ever Easy brilliant natural without life together forever and ever

It is night All the senses buzzing for you The windows are still The streets are gone We float aloft Because of the softness of laughter We declare All that is joyous And then set it free Into the sky above There is a night sky In your ceiling I feel all the stars’ love In your kisses Both lovers sigh in paradise Both lovers sigh in paradise Lips to lips, explode bliss, Both lovers sigh in paradise Both lovers sigh in paradise Both lovers sigh in paradise Lips to lips, explode bliss, Both lovers sigh in paradise

Do you remember the life before this Where we met in a prairie Under the sun and got so lost So lost in reverie That it was almost, almost As if we never existed Almost as if we never existed Sometimes I feel with you as if I’m lost in time Outcast And it’s my favorite place Do you remember when we descended Deep under the surface of the earth Buried in promises, promises Of the dreams we speak through And we held each other there We were caked in moss and worms We laid there together And we didn’t leave

about

ARDIS = Earth, the necessary changes having been made [mutatis mutandis].

Ardis is an imagined parallel world and a very real place. It is inhabited by opening portals using song and scent. An ardis is the point of an arrow, a nexus in time and space, shooting toward the unknown future. This particular ardis is the pregnant present as it incubates future vision.

Part 1--
Scale: Building to City
Portal: 5 songs, fragrance, scented candle, video, live concert
Topography: Dense urban development; towers and bridges set atop one another, a confusion of images and symbols
Vantage: Oculocentric, the beginnings of Ardisian-thinking, the conflict between hubris and utopic desire, the limitations of individualism; the body as an ant in an army, or a blood cell in an artery.
Air Quality: Smoky, Clouded, Empire Decay, Overwhelming
Sound: Loud

Part 2--
Scale: Comingled Bodies to Bedroom
Portal: 5 songs, fragrance, body lotion, video, live concert
Topography: Ardisian boudoir, lit by a pink moon
Vantage: Touch language, soft plush, tangled tongues and limbs, a delightful jumble, the way time is stretched like taffy during orgasm
Air Quality: Muggy and steamy, human animal musk, enfolded
Sound: Intimate, whispered, immediate

Part 3--
Scale: Glacial Lake to Forest/ Mountain Range
Portal: 5 songs, fragrance, room mist, video, live concert
Topography: Three crystal blue lakes, each with their own distinct personalities, named Omega, Ozero, and Zero; Mountainous and densely wooded; diverse fauna and web-like tributaries bound for the ocean
Vantage: Geologic time, the intelligence of a complex ecosystem, matter as it travels through cycles of decay and birth
Air Quality: Expansive, liquid and misty, a pleasant and transportive breeze
Sound: Adrift via clouds, constantly in motion and characterized by continually transforming relation; the sound is the listener and the listener is the sound
