A force of nature, she arrives, born aloft on the East wind. Shaman. Magician. Anti establishment agent of Revolution.
Armed with her magic words. Words of power that induce joy, chaos, revolution, she is Hermes the agent of change and true champion of the repressed.
She works first on the children who of course need little help to be lead into the realm of magic; a place of will, imagination manifest. Her first teaching, that work, the leaden drudgery of existence, can be made joy, transmuted into a golden wondrous game.

Then with her underground, street artist friend we are taken by the hand. Altered perception to 25 frames per second. Cell. The Second dimension.

He uses the magic word, releases love and joy and the system falls. or he ascends past it. Either way, now, Love is The Law
