Today guest contributor Jason Haye shares his Project 5am.
Jason writes, “Project 5am is about capturing and following the essence of being in the moment. It is an interdisciplinary project which can be viewed as a celebration of creativity or as a 5 year old diary of exploring a moment of enlightenment. The allusive aspect of the site reflects the Allen Ginsberg poem “5am” that it was inspired from and the mystic of the people, stories and philosophies that I have encountered on my journey. The aim is for the viewer to signify with references that are on the site and to put into their own context because …questions answers life.”
A moment that can happen at any time.
when everything falls into place,
clarity is at clearest,
confusion transforms into oneness
and when fate…
Welcomes you with open arms
“on a day like this”
“A lazy sailor at heart”
