â€œNose to Navelâ€ Keiko explains to a lecture hall filled with acupuncturists. â€œIf one could touch your nose to your navel you would notice that all of your organs of your face can be mapped to points on your navel.â€ I am lying on my back, needles encircling my belly button. Keiko presses and twists the southernmost point. â€œCan feel this?â€ she asks. OUCH! I scream. Bright colors flash in my mindâ€™s eye: I am catapulted into a trance.
The porous ground gives way to a bottomless Blue Hole where inland rain rush to return to the ocean with every elliptical tug of the moon. I plunge into a pool of warm tranquil ocean in the Bahamas. The sulfuric enriched rain water forms a citron river where long strains of eerie ghost white bacteria drift by. Opaque strands are caught in the barbarous coral. The mucus ribbons undulate in unison dancing to the silent music of the tide. Above is a ceiling of sapphire Blue Ocean where fish hover, peering into the flow.
Ompheloskepsis - I contemplate my navel (in a light hearted way).A poet sings as the singer divide. Their translucent cerise dresses twist seductively around their bodies to the Passion of Peter Gabriel, the pulsating Violin Concerto of Philip Glass and the elusive sounds of Ulrich Schnauss. In this world of liquid glass bubbles raise over head and the world outside contorts with the waves long enough to drift into mindfulness. A tattered net fade into the kelp, god beams encircles a curious barracudas until time bends and matches the lumbering larghissimo tempo of the tropics as aeralist Kevin Herring is seduced by the beautiful barracuda (aerialist Lisa Christensen).
