I’ve always been better at figuring out volcanoes than people and politics.

“The following is a contributor post by the ABXY Mage.”
Did you know there are over 150 active volcanoes in the United States? Of course you didn’t, and neither did I before creating this mix. But, it’s true. These natural wonders can be both awe-inspiring and terrifying. Perhaps it’s these qualities that have lead to so many video games featuring volcano and lava levels.
Hawaii, famously known for being created by a chain of volcanoes, is synonymous with the frightening marvels, and it is where the story of Pele was born. Pele is the goddess of volcanoes and fire and was believed to have created the Hawaiian islands. Pele lives in the crater of Kīlauea, a volcano that recently erupted continuously from 1983 to 2018.
Always respect the power of the fire mountains and enjoy “Kīlauea” – Music For Pele.
