she delicately fell upon the grassy land and
into a deep intoxicating dream.
She dreamt of an elaborate hall full of masked beauty
everywhere the eye could look...of people laughing and dancing.
Yet, she felt lost and desperate to find a familiar face.
She realized then the man who had given her the challenge of a life,
the man who had been most unfair, was her only refuge.
He finally takes her close as she loses herself in the glittery moment.
When all of a sudden the clock strikes and fantasy is shattered by reality.
The above is a little of LOJ's inspiration. If you have never seen the 1980's movie Labyrinth...you must! This masquerade event of the year has been taking place for eleven years now. Each year drawing in more divine creativity than the last. For the past few years they have extended it to two days of breath taking costuming and amazing performances.
I had the wonderful opportunity to go both nights again this year. Below are a couple photographs of this magical weekend.
PLEASE SEE PHOTO ALBUM "LOJ XII" (on our MySpace) FOR THE COMPLETE COMPILATION.
