Eutopia is found in connection.
A connection wavers—it shifts with time and moves synonymously with those that it lives within. When we look within ourselves, and within each other, we open up the possibility of experience. Experience of the good, the bad, and the in between. These ebbs and flows are innate to our existence.
In this eutopia, the earth becomes a barren landscape, a canvas that we paint with each connection. It is our grounding, but the way that we perceive it, and inhabit it, is forever changing.
We paint with red, and we experience warmth and passion.
We paint with blue, and we experience trust and loyalty.
We paint with green, and we experience growth and harmony.
We paint with white, and we experience distance and barriers.
We paint with black, and we experience coldness and secrecy.
Through all of this, our canvas is unwavering. It forever exists as the same world, but within it— we are constantly in flux.
