Naturally postmodern fireworks
It all starts with a picture interference. Palo Santo probably wrongly evoked a place from Tom Wolfe's "Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test", where the beatniks from the bus smeared glitter on trees and waited in vain for the Beatles, Palo Alto is that. I expect gigantic coniferous trees on the Pacific cliffs, ethereal eucalyptus sprouting from the needles at the base of the twelve-metre diameter trunks. Images flicker between bright heat and wood, grey fog and wetness, dark resin and damp earth. That's still inconsistent. I don't get the images of my contemplation in Palo Santo's landscape, climb like Cary Grant two states away on Mount Rushmore and stand in the way of my hallucinations. Then I let go. Anything goes in postmodern art, plunging into the stream of my thoughts I dream-walk in a rain of grated coconut through a forest full of spicy woods, through whose roots black vanilla pulsates, the barks entwined by minty mosses. My wife is in the basement, thinking of a cocktail drink. There you go! Br /> Then bitter-green smoky clouds of bark mint rise, curl down the sandalwood bark in a dance of curls, immerse themselves in the sharp black liquorice of the wet loamy earth, vulcanize like the wild rubber of the herd of metal avalanches. Soon the tire wear from the streets of Kansas City fades away, the strange women escort me to the wooden house beds of Missouri. There they lovingly rub the bitter essential oils into my chest and sing polyphonic southern gospels lulling into my soul. Like a naturally medical gauze bandage, the mosses meander for several hours as a wafer-thin cover on my skin, finally the bride extinguishes the cone of incense in the sandalwood cup with coco-mojito Although composed of only two components, Palo Santo smoked wood and Amyris, a rather earthy-scented citrus plant used as a "West Indian sandalwood" in the perfume industry as a cheaper substitute, "Palo Santo + Amyris" unfolds an undreamt-of variety of aromas and associations, creates contradictions and divergences, moves in a field of tension between original nature, applied herbal medicine and the (perhaps involuntary) crossing of the borders to industrial disfigurement of raw materials. A naturally postmodern firework display, so to speak **
