Mundane existence
The everyday
News of tragedy on a cold winters day
No rhyme
No reason
Irrational being
Screaming inside
While the rest remain silent
Though far from a vow
Encapsulated in a vastness of ignorance
Submerged in the deep blue,
Is it not time to break on through?
Darkness sets in
It’s all around me
It envelopes me
Breathing made difficult
No air for my lungs
Cello strings fill my head
Eyes closed
In the deep abyss
Bubbles rising
So do I chase
eventually reaching surface
As I crack the egg
The light pours in
Warmth takes over me
I can breathe again
Air fills my lungs
As fair weather clouds glide effortlessly

Mahaloness is an art blog documenting the inner spirit and artist journey of Shane Haltman, also referred to as 'hälts'. He lives, breathes and makes art in Canada. Hälts often travels to remote and exotic locations to produce community spirit murals and paintings using available materials. He is unconventional in his approach to art and chooses unique projects and sometimes they choose him. He is known for guerrilla lawn art shows, painting helmet art for a Canadian Olympic Athlete, and once painted a magic bus out of this world. Mostly he is human as anyone else, however very driven and disciplined with respect to his artistic practice. He has experience working with the bereaved and helping people who are experiencing, or who have experienced trauma in their lives. He also enjoys working with the youth and passing on his wisdom, usually in the form of art jams. Hälts is a full spectrum artist, living and breathing art, as a daily practice, in this mixed up beautiful world.
