SYNOPSIS: An apocalyptic adventure of awakening, madness, and revelation, Sonspot, is the tale of Mack—a coming of age man who is plagued by supernatural nightmares. Fed up with the depraved world he was born in, he asks for death. What he gets is the complete opposite; buried memories of his eternal soul on the Island of Eden and the damnation that follows. With the aid of a magic gum, the mysterious divine flow unfolds before Mack and his best friend, leading them on an adventure through the nine levels of hell; answering one fundamentally scary question that haunts us all to our grave.

Along the way, we began to talk about our lives and what we want to do with them. We tend to talk existential, always. We get to the water and more clumsily than skillfully, get into the kayaks without toppling over. I grab the oar and set a course for my brotha who was several paces ahead.
The thing I remember clearly, is how nice it was that day. There was something magical in the air, and in due motion, the magic entered my mind. Though, I think it’s always there and its us who simply have to be aware of it. I was in some sort of zone while I was paddling and while in this zone, an idea came. I told my brother that I wanted to write and travel. He said that it sounded like love.
Later, Mack came to my mind and jumped into another reality which opened up like a portal in some observable section of my mind. In that universe, I saw what appeared to be a place of perfection; the island of Eden. Jane was there and all the harmony that brings bliss to the soul.
For the rest of the day, that image held in my head and played out clearly as the reality I was kayaking in. After mapping the pond and finding his brother’s old raft they made decades ago, we hiked back to the car and went back to the apartment I was living at.
That raft though.
IT was a magic raft.
At the apartment, we got in some groove and started to play some video game with a gun. During the games, the scene I’m seeing through my mind reaches its next chapter. The shadow enters onto the island and begins to plague Jane and Mack.
I remember creeping myself out when the character for the serpent came around and introduced itself to the story. Ohh, that night, I couldn’t sleep, it was awesome. Before I could go wherever the heck we go in our sleep, I had to write down the story that came through my mind; as much of the plot as possible.
Pretty sure I slept peacefully that night; but who really knows?
