Gotta chase down them _basura_ guys durante la semana santa. Not that I blame them; skip a few trash days ish gets ripe. Sat Apr 19 11:42:31 CDT 2014

Last night it became clearer to me. I once traveled for fun/growth/personal development. Now I live abroad because I believe it's vital to my survival. Good, if exhuasting, to get that clarity. Expatriette to my core, always, I am now also a refugee of a collapsing empire. Sat Apr 19 04:18:40 CDT 2014

Seated forward fold. Solid day. Heard 87 bells toll en la Ciudad de México, (probably) for the man whose book I vow to finish. Speaking of. Hasta mañana. Thu Apr 17 22:33:14 CDT 2014

And then. Before you know it. You're 80. And everything's broken.Thu Apr 17 16:37:25 CDT 2014

Read news of Gabriel García Márquez's death with Cien Años de Soledad on the bed to my right (happened to be there as I'm reading it for the first time. And, cry. Now? I have to get through this book. Poco a poco. Man. PLUS two floaters today. Must be a launch day.Thu Apr 17 15:41:16 CDT 2014

The city emptied out for something Jesús related. Also. Turns out Jesús was not into booze; all alcohol on lock-down, draped in black cloth, la ciudad-wide. Amazing. Prohibition in 2014. Thu Apr 17 12:06:14 CDT 2014
