(E.L.A.) Overall Vision

Crystallised Path

First & foremost a seldom mentioned fact about blogging is that when you’re busy out there searching for answers & pieces to the puzzles, its not always easy to find time to blog 🙂 & perhaps that in itself is something to blog about … However it’s in these past weeks that a number of clear paths have been crystallised, while on the journey of enlightenment & the path is simple . . .

Enlightened Allure now AKA E.L.A (for convenience) is going to be grounded in developing IRL engagements based on concrete activities.

This will include bi weekly events (There’s been more than a dozen to date, some videos here), upcoming Pop Up engagements in the summer (TBC) & a Mini Zine of Enlight. (TBC)

These projects are really exciting developments & will be coinciding with a more seamless online experiences for ELA’ers. There will be a ton more news to come as these projects unfold . . .

In the meantime if you would like to get more involved or simply say hi Feel free to engage here

(E.L.A.) On Humor & Enagagement

An Ensemble of Laughter

You may have noticed how laughter can take various forms; the anxious one right before you start crying, the laughter at another persons stupidity, or a more profound laughter. Laughing at yourself  & your cultural practices that are held in such high regards.

Now this is the laughter I’m interested in. The kind of laughter that can erupt a room while unveiling the masks that our cultural institutions hide behind, with the conviction of absolute seriousness :-). This kind of laughter is not only effective in providing the presenter with laughs but also acts as a great tension relief for the audience. I’m sure we’ve all had that moment when we realize we’re not alone in finding this mad circus we call life, a joke.

And that’s exactly what I aim to do here. Be your tour guide to this hilarious circus we call ‘modern day life’ & all the elaborate games it inhabits. 

Yours Truly
