BOIN – Black and White or Color by Susan

Last night I was thinking about where we are in this story. We have become an important part of the story. In the beginning we were asked to open our minds and follow a story which to many of us made no sense at all. Many of you who follow my Il Volo stories, wrote to me to ask, “What is this about?”  Sometimes I think that you think I know more than I do. I only know what you know. I have no inside information!
Recently my messages have changed. Many of you are now weighing in on the stories. After Coco was left at the aquarium, and the butterflies reappeared, you stormed my messenger to say, “I think the Butterflies will rescue Coco!” Good for you!

So now we are asked if the post should remain in Black and White or Color! Again, you began to weigh in. Many of you said, you liked the black and white and, many said there is room for color.
Before we go on, other things have happened this past week which we need to address.
We have a new character. Her name is Kalsa. What does this character have to do with the story? I’m not sure where Fabio and Ignazio are going with this but, I can tell you there are two things I know about Kalsa that do contribute to the story. But, of course, I’m not going to tell you what that is. I’m leaving that to the guys to tell you. But what I will tell you about the Kalsa story is this is a story about traditions. What started out as a mythical character (the Moor’s head) wound up being the symbol of Sicily.

We know the ultimate goal of BOIN is to make us feel like we are part of the project. So how do we fit into the new story? Traditions!
Traditions are what form our good values.
Traditions are important because they keep us in touch with our past and by sharing them keep us closer to our families and friends. Everything Ignazio and Fabio have done so far points to Good Values!
We also saw the BOIN watch and BOIN hat this week. First off, baby Noah looked adorable in his BOIN hat.

And I assume the watch is a Smart Watch. I have a Smart Watch. Let me say it is smarter than me! But what was revealed to us when we saw the watch? In the background of the picture, we saw a color poster with BOIN objects on it.
So that brings us back to the question: “Black and White or Color?”
To me Black and White is their signature. Their logo is in Black and White. I find it very intriguing and mysterious. You see the Black and White and there is no need to say who or what is this, we automatically know we have a new post from BOIN. Having said that, a splash of color couldn’t hurt. Perhaps slowly color will come into the project and it will reveal the end result, the project we’ve all been following for almost a month.
Until now, the figurative characters have added the needed color to the story but, in my opinion, Ignazio and Fabio, maybe it is time to add a splash of color here and there.  Unleash the Color let us begin to see the future!
To see if BOIN will continue in Black and White or if the guys will Unleash the Color follow Ignazio and Fabio on their journey. Bring your friends along! FOLLOW @boincollection

BOIN-To Follow the Dream by Susan

BOIN ~ To Follow the Dream, You Must Be the Dream!

Week three and finally it’s starting to come together! “To Follow the Dream, You Must Be the Dream!” What is the Dream? What is any dream? Dreams are about our futures! Yes, there are dreams about our past and sometimes bad dreams but, in this World of BOIN, we are talking about a Dream for the future. A Dream of HOPE!

You need a Dream to Achieve a Dream. You need Hope to achieve Hope!

I don’t know when Ignazio and Fabio decided to start this project but, I do know that this is a message that is so important to all of us in our world today!
What have we learned by entering the World of BOIN? The ultimate goal is to make you feel like you are part of the project. They represent style, creativity, sensitivity and an openness to an old idea that needs to be revisited! An idea that there is HOPE for the World!
Through his music, Ignazio leads us to a world where music calms the senses and opens the mind to new ideas! We float on his notes that sail us across the sky following the path of the Butterflies!
The orcas and the butterflies are used to express comparison and emphasis clarity and to make the story more interesting by adding an addition of color and freshness where only black and white exist! This is something that Fabio has used in his art many times. And now he is introducing this new way of approaching art through this narrative in Black and White! Recently I wrote a story about Fabio called “In Black and White Between Colors!” This is what we’re talking about here! Color can be added in many ways. In this story it is added figuratively!
The orcas and the butterflies are “figurative” characters.

The Orcas symbolize spiritual guidance. Through spiritual guidance, we confront our emotions.  To do this, we must learn to trust our instincts. Your only limitation is your mind!
The Butterflies signify spiritual rebirth, creativity, joy, promise, and the capacity to experience and enjoy the beauty of life.
Many of you have said you don’t understand what’s going on. You’re lost! I’m lost sometimes too! Soon, Ignazio and Fabio will do a Live and will explain it all!
Some of you have said, you wish it was in English. When they can they do translate to English but, you must understand, that certain expressions do not translate well. That’s why I am following the story and writing about it so that I can fill in some of the blanks and tell, in the best way I can, without losing the feeling of their words, what they are expressing.
So, getting back to this dream!
Ignazio and Fabio want to create a grand family with which to share their values. What do we know about their values?
In the case of Ignazio, we know he is very compassionate and, he has a great love for family, friends, animals, actually, all humanity! Knowing Fabio as I do, I can honestly say, he is always out their fighting for the little guy! He cares about peoples’ feelings and, he wants all people to be heard!
They have told us that they want to talk to as many people as they can. “Every day we grow more and more!” They love your questions! They can’t answer all your questions but, they try to answer as many as they can. And, when you add their story to your story, you let them know that you understand or are beginning to understand their message!
What is Ignazio and Fabio doing for us? Through their visual and musical communication, they are opening our eyes and minds to a beautiful world where there is a lot of sensitivity and a lot of love for family, friends and animals. There’s room for everyone and everything in the World of BOIN.
We are learning “To Follow the Dream You Must be the Dream!”  It is essential to their idea and to attain their goal.  What is that goal? It is a Dream that we will all share a beautiful future! A future full of HOPE!
In their World, the Rainbow that follows the rain does not lead to a pot of gold but to a World full of HOPE!

Good work Ignazio and Fabio!

WE are all BOIN!
