Synchromysticism

The art of realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance."

Tori Amos / Pele Sync


 Locals in Pele’s path call her ‘gentle, but so unrelenting’
"Pahoa, Hawaii • Pele, the Hawaiian volcano goddess, moves gradually and persistently as she deposits lava across the Big Island of Hawaii. People in the small town lying in its path say the lava will reshape the community yard by yard as it slides toward the ocean."
But the daughter of the family's home that was destroyed was remarkably sanguine about losing the family home:
If you're going to live on a volcano, it's about her (the Hawaiian Goddess Pele), not us … if she wants her land back, then get out of the way. I like to call it 'paradise tax'.

I saw Tori Amos play live in Brisbane Friday night  
(I'm a fan of her music),
which was the last show of her Oz tour.

I mentioned that I was going to see her in this post of mine -
To Begin to Know... 
Some of my Tori Amos CDs on my bookshelf.
The funny thing though was Tori started her tour of Oz on the 11th November, the day after the first house in Hawaii was claimed by Pele the volcano goddess.
I presume Tori flew across the Pacific Ocean (past Hawaii)
to get to Australia.

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano: 

First home incinerated since lava began flowing towards Pahoa in June

Tori singing "Blood Roses" in Brisbane Friday night.
Also the 11th of November is poppy day
(Remembrance Day for all the soldiers killed fighting in all of the wars) 

and "Blood Roses" is off her Album "Boys for Pele",
which she performed in Brisbane on the night.
I saw Tori play the same venue about three years ago and that time I took my wife along, 
but all my wife did was get bored and kept asking me when is the concert going to finish.
So going by myself this time round was like getting half price tickets, which meant I could afford one of my favourite beers again from this venue ;-)

Sweet Concert On Wednesday Night

She's a bitter BREW alright ;-)
I bought my ticket for right at the back of the concert hall, because unlike all her adoring fans in the front row, I think Tori is an artist who paints the hall with light and sound and her work is best appreciated from afar.
Tori's concerts are a bit like synchronicity, you have to distance yourself a little so you get to see the bigger picture at work.
If you are too close, you don't see the overall effect of the performance, you just see what is right in front of you with a lot of the show literally going over your head.
Great show from the piano goddess herself,
who also happens to be hot stuff playing in the flow  ;-)
Lava sets fire to a stack of tyres on Hawaii.

Love it! I can see why you would want to sit some distance back. The lights and sound must have been spectacular!

Nice one! Don't know that beer though, but the bikini wife doesn't look too bitter. Glad you could afford her.
