Aurora Borealis

I never knew that microscopic turmoil resulting in dynamic instability is what gives the northern lights their eerie glow.  The luminescent glow typical of auroras comes from light that’s emitted when high-energy particles that have been ejected from the sun and waylaid by earth’s magnetosphere collide with atoms and molecules in our upper atmosphere.  It is kind of scary that these lights are the result of energy from outer space and the different colors are a mix of red with green or blue.  Northern Lights is also a type of cannabis that grows best if you aerate the soil.  It is known to slam your body into a wonderfully numbing, lazy mode, taking away your desire to do anything but sit on the couch and listen to music while you indulge in munchies and tell yourself that everything can wait till tomorrow.

I know that some gentlemen prefer blondes, but my bucket list includes seeing this light show while smoking some Northern Lights as I also gratify myself by listening to Bob Dylan sing ‘Rainy Day Women’ at the same time.  I am not sure how this will compare to the time when I went camping along the Onofre river and I found those 7000 years old stone age etchings and hung out with the local tribe eating sugar cane, but I am going to give it a try, as nothing ventured, nothing gained.  It felt so good to be welcomed to the jungle and see wild animals that were not caged in a zoo.  Having the freedom to sniff the jungle air was like smelling the breath of God.  When I got back from this trip, I discovered the perfect styling product for my hair, Northern Lights Matte Paste, which comes in a jar and is made with quality plant-derived ingredients, so it is not full of harsh chemicals.
