Elliptical 190° view : The streaming of the Milky way over the glow of Halemaumau Crater from Kilauea Volcano, Mauna Loa, Hualalai, an ocean of cloud, magenta sodium vapor glow from Kailua Kona, and a 950lm beam of illumination.

I sat here in silence. Breathing, my eyes adjusted to see shimmers of light, a swarming of hasten-paced-clouds wrapping around three mountain summits, and an ancient tranquility allowing one to sink ever so deep in the crisp alpine wind. I felt a handful of beloved sitting next to me. Thank you.

Close your eyes, my darling.
You're weightless now.
