PORTRAITS

Atticus Poetry ‘Love Her Wild’

Our friend Atticus (@atticuspoetry) recently asked us to contribute a collection of images for his first book Love Her Wild! #loveherwild.

Do you recognize some of our favourite Maui muses?

Here is our original capture of local maui muse @saltontherocks and the black and white version used in Love Her Wild!

OBSESSION IS NOT LOVE,
INFATUATION IS NOT LOVE,
WHEN SOMEONE IGNORES YOU
OR TREATS YOU POORLY, CARELESSLY, OR WITH INDIFFERENCE
THAT’S NOT LOVE –
THAT’S A LACK OF LOVE,
FOR YOURSELF, FOR TRYING TO FILL YOUR MISSING PIECES WITH THEIRS
BUT WHEN SOMEONE IS WHOLE
AND YOU ARE WHOLE
AND YOU ACT IN KINDNESS AND BENEVOLENCE
VULNERABILITY THROUGH STRENGTH, LOVE BECOMES AN EXCHANGE
WITH ANOTHER PERSON-
AND THAT IS
ITS TRUEST FORM.

We then joined Atticus on a roadtrip up the Westcoast – with stops in LA, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver and Victoria to read from ‘Love Her Wild.’
