For a moment I thought I detected a slight purple haze showing through the window pane in the photo, but decided it reminds me more, albeit just a bit, of white lightning ...

And I'm hear to say, I survived it. Nowadays, when on boost, it does indeed verge on psychadelic. Expands my mind, but more often than not blows it. Instant gratification, it doesn't damage my chromosomes, and it's legal (well...as long as Larry Law doesn't have a stick up his ass).

Like when you dream that you're falling... that's the feeling you get in your gut when it hooks in 3rd/4th.
