Dragonfly Kiss

Dragonfly Kiss

We stepped out of the house into the alley, our visible breath smudged by the wind tunnel. At the base of the steps she pulled a lighter to the menthol gripped in her mouth. The arctic breeze blew away each flame in birthday fashion, so I cupped my hands around hers and our campfire was born.
With her eyes on mine, she pulled and I said “Have you ever had a dragonfly kiss before?”…

The Approach
The crowd lowers their murmurs to a vacant silence as she makes her way up the aisle. Finally. Slowly. Unsure. She tiptoes toward you, feet pumping ice water, carrying flowers like a sacred torch, her arm wrapped around her father’s as he delivers her to you one last time.
You await with the stillness of a photograph in the best suit you’ve ever worn. Breathless. Feet so cold, they’re frozen……

Super
“Hey stranger” to you too
I’ve been super. Thanks for asking.
Hey, did you know there are 100 billion planets in our galaxy?
That’s 12 digits
That’s one digit for every month since you sent your last beacon.
I remember because it was the first winter I’d woken up to the dawn
Instead of you.

VOX POP on Summer

We, Yona and Leela, are two Future School students who came to do their first week of volunteering in the AV Radio. We learned to make play lists, edit recordings and for the day before our last we went to two schools in order to ask a couple people the same questions about a hot topic in Auroville at the moment, SUMMER!
No one can escape the heat, not even with the latest rains (which we are all extremely grateful) so we decided that instead of trying to forget about or ignore the weather, we will bring it up and see what people have to say.

A Conversation with Dino and D

In this interview, we talk with Dino and D who are both artists from the United States, While, Dino left on the day of the interview promising to return, D remains in Auroville. This interesting interview covers a range of topics. The two discuss what compelled them to travel to Auroville and their art and spirituality in relation to it. Furthermore, the two discuss the current polarizing political climate in America, and what it means to be at a distance from it as individuals from a minority group.
