"Wet Socks, Damp Moods" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)

Imagine that. Again? This always happens. The too-fast pitter-patter of hearts too caffeinated to think quite clearly, the gushing that happens after 3 beers and a commonly-shared secret, the pressing of potatoes that happens before they’re fully mashed. Kendall Walton would cry spontaneity, but I’d say that exists next to coincidence in the no-mans-land between the will of consciousness and the dormant desires behind our eyes. Who would have thought that our paths would lead here? Who could have guessed that this small day would be The Day, that this moment would be The Moment? I didn’t know. You didn’t know.
But here we are, and we’re inspired. We’re on top. Our imaginations, hiding until that instant, are now alive and pulsing through this City. J.M.W. Turner painted ships on seas. Monet mimicked water lilies. We imagine Shanghai. We paint it in lights, as it’s meant to be painted. In colors, the way it was born. In dirt and soap and blue-haired denizens who wish only to keep tradition alive atop this beautiful hill.
