Universal Blessings to all sentient beings for this coming new year. Big things are happening for the start of 2014. The earths energies are shifting with the recent polar shift of our sun. This year will be our year of the awakening. Truth is illuminating and the time for personal transformation is now! Raise your positive vibrations for 2014 and help shed your light in all that is wicked and love unconditionally towards all our brothers and sisters in our huge human family. Be safe out there tonight and I’m gonna make a full commitment on posting a lot more over time. Love you guys! Namaste
Named after the Hawaiian word for “spewing,” the mythical home of the volcanic goddess Pele rises 4,190 feet from the southeastern part of the Big Island. One of the world’s most active and perilous volcanoes, Kilauea has been erupting for more than three decades, fitfully coughing basaltic lava into the Pacific Ocean below. You can easily spot the billowing plumes of scorching gas in the daytime. But if you can, visit after sunset, when the lava flows glow more visibly, creating a beautifully infernal light show.

“I have been afraid to reveal this aspect of myself because people don’t like you to wear too many hats – they criticise you for it. I didn’t want it to be seen as disposable, because art is not disposable to me. When you do a movie or you are working in television, the people that you work with become your life; it is a very intimate experience that takes you somewhere emotionally. The experience of painting something has the same effect. Whether the painting is a success or a failure, the time that I was involved in it remains the same.” — Lucy Liu
