AGAIN KISS AGAIN

In a sensual sequence of intimate images, the exquisite Meagan and magical Ben come together --in the forest, the river, the garden, the sea-- to light up the screen in sweetness and embraces. Their tenderness and rapture is reflected by family, friends, and nature Herself. Even the mysterious, other worldly Aethaers, sensually silently support their love.

Ben places a note in a small glass bottle and bluetapes it to a little wooden raft. The boat begins its journey down a Spring rill to a pond, to the river, to the sea. Meagan is at the sea, dancing in duet with a large yellow ball.
The Aethaers are awakening in the forest dressed in light, colorful cloth. Their fairylike clan is silent but very physical. They journey through the forest where they eventually encounter Ben and Meagan.

We meet the participants in the actual wedding of Ben and Meagan in the garden, above the garlic patch. The beautiful bridesmaids descend with Meagan through the forest, through the grapes up to the altar. Their Mothers rejoice in tears and toasts. Meagan and Ben kiss.
There is little actual dialogue. Thus the role of the music and words of songs and letters read aloud are primary. In one scene Meagan guides Ben, eyes and face covered by a red cape, to a potato patch. Ben asks where she is leading him?. Meagan replies, “To bed where tubers be in abundance.” He then shouts, “Romance and riddles! Two of my favorites!.”
The simultaneous tales gradually grow together like colorful puzzle pieces. We the audience want to celebrate and dance and kiss.

....from the theme song (piano: Barbara Dzuro; vocal: Darcy DuRuz & Allison Rickenbaugh)
May you be naked with eyes open wide--
And play lightly in sunlight with beast parts engaged;
Give each other pleasure while snowflakes freely fall....
Kiss you again, again and again and again--
Kiss again, again and again.


....from Ben and Meagan’s letters
“Ben--crying before painting THE AWAKENING OF ADONIS
Ben, when I saw this painting I could only think about you and me--like majestic kiss in motion. In this painting they posture, the two lovers, holding love inside each, together--infinite non-touching......Carry this image with you: I am in vast blowing field of daisies, loving you forever..... “Istanbul.....Meagan if you were here I’d pick you up and spin you on the sprint and dump you down and kiss your lips and tug you up again like a fisherman hauls a net with eager arms and take you inside over this tan shoulder and love your flesh..and.eat with you what is life and talk about the same.
