The lines of friendship.

Coming down quickly,
Things try to fit in,
I try to make it work,
Everything in harmony.

We are all different,
That's for certain,
and although we turn and twirl,
there's only one way we fit together.

You try to make it work,
By twisting things around,
Setting it up for our perfect friend,
Indeed, I speak of the line.

It comes down quickly,
and rarely do you lay it down,
As you try to complete,
many lines at a time.

But victory is never eminent,
The unbeatable game,
gets faster,
As even you, the master,
fails to prevent a disaster.

And so you count the lines,
which quickly disappear,
If you leave no hole,
In the friendship of pieces.

Because its the hole,
covered by the masses,
which wont let you erase,
all those mistakes.

So keep your words honest,
And leave no lies within,
Because as in a game of Tetris,
a small hole will destroy,
The greatest lines of friendship.

My Barcelona Guide

Long overdue, but having been to Barcelona a number of times, I have been wanting to write some of the secret parts of the city that I encountered, and that are worth seeing. It's worth citing that a lot of the restaurants were originally gotten from an amazing list of restaurants my doctoral advisor shared with me, and that a lot of the places I love going to were first shown to me by our program director, who knows Barcelona better than anybody I know.

Additional note: Barcelona runs on a different time schedule than other countries. Dinner at 9-10pm is very common, and people start going out around midnight (to bars). Clubs start around 2am and go until about 6am, so keep that in mind as you enjoy the city. They also have afternoon naps (siestas), so in the early afternoon, a lot of things may be closed. The summer is usually pretty packed regardless because its booming with tourists. I generally do not like crowded toursit-filled areas, but you have to experience them once. You…

On nature's sincerity

I wish I could But I spoke nonsense I wrote it rather To speak it back to you.
The trees spoke quietly I looked from above and smiled The sun tucked away and I hoped It would spill its secrets.
The picture was rightfully painted Had I blinked, I would have missed it. Do not use sincerity It is not becoming of usage.
Learn to become And you will see the world As it was born It will smile once more. x

left it as a draft, came back, its ready.

Indemnify the asinine.
Take it back.
Make a profit.
It's just pocket change.

Don't wish, keep quiet,
and make it happen.
For preemptive boasting
Is definite fragility.

Don't let them shatter
your hidden incompetence.
Lay it on the table.
Serve it cold.

Realize that honesty
poisons the fearful.
Understand that truth
will tear down that wall.

Detail with actions
Step over those who detail
For substance is rare
But taking down the producer
That's the norm in this hell.
