Villanueva: Moonstruck 2020

FABulous People

“STAY Wild, Moon Child”. Call it a superstition, a myth, man-made, a coincidence and unfounded, does the moon really have an influence on a man’s behavior on a Full Moon? Some may feel the lunar energy give warmth and love and just feel the flow of romance just like in Juan Karlos’ popular song of “Buwan”, all-time favorites like “Moon River” and “Fly Me to the Moon”.

Is it perhaps that others are triggered and influenced into some kind of irrational, “IndiGenius”, creative mental behavior? Does the moonlight really alter our hormonal levels or does the moon’s gravitational forces on ocean tides and water, like that in the “reservoirs” of our brain, send a domino effect of molecular chaos? Why are the werewolves and the egg laying crustaceans at the coastline in sync with the Full Moon? Also, not to mention the significance of the moon in astrology and the practice of fengsui. Does the moon really recharge our precious crystals?

Well, there is one thing I am certainly sure of. Just the sight of the Full Moon in its majestic splendor in the night sky, makes us feel one with the Creator, the cosmic forces and the universe. I am also pretty much sure, that the creatives and the lovers in Baguio certainly enjoy and look forward to the next Full Moon! Therefore, happy Full Moon! Happy Romance and cheers to the “IndiGenius” minds! Enjoy all the works of Art and the Love happening simultaneously in the City. May the Almighty Kabunian, bless and keep us till we meet again!

“IBAGTIT Art Exhibit” (Crazy Art). The opening ceremonies held February 8 at Luisa Café’s 2nd floor with lead organizers Kigao Rosimo and Frank Cimatu, it was a pooling and celebration of the generations, for the love of art in all kinds of media, the meeting of minds of the veterans and young blood, the living icons and those who have gone leaving a legacy, the advocacy on mental health and respect for others regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity. Moreover, it is a symphony of IndiGenius artworks by Cordilleran artists. The Ibagtit Exhibit will runs till the end of March.
