Artist's Description

Loafing. Just loafing. Stroll, roll, run, fall, be still, silent with thousands of bands of colored lights making music in the distant whirl of wheels and legs and wind. The head falls when the heart gets near salty air and the blush of suntan oil and the bloom of briefs and bikinis and hips and sandy flip flops and transparent rayon floating in wet breezes in circles over fast hot dogs and fish and mugs of beer leaning in the distance against a sun just beginning to think of setting. A hush grows like a damp curtain as everyone sees, hears, feels that it will all be over eventually and probably quite soon. Then a whirlwind blows up and young women scream and giggle and grab for their hair and men laugh and rub eyes, mouths, lips, and skin burned with urgent, pink blisters. The sand dances away into rays of light that now pour over galloping waves that push push push… larger with every second that passes. Voices are quiet again for a second. Anticipation of darkness. Then the laughter begins again. This time it bounces off of stars.
