Can we stop, for just a minute?

I stroll back from the unknown,
where the heart is at ease,
as a plane drifts on into oblivion,
It's a sunny day.

Sneeze after sneeze,
I can't control myself,
Sometimes, words just feel right,
And I can't help but writing them.

I want to drift away,
Close my eyes,
and see worries dissolve,
I need this to stop.

Just for one minute,
That gorgeous minute of calamity,
That minute where birds fly,
and the wind blows your mind away.

It's a difficult thing to see,
And then it's all blurred in beauty,
I can't help but tell you,
love does it all.

I wish life could be like this forever,
like the first time you felt it,
like the first time your heart just knew,
that it had made it.

That after years of travels,
and pretty pictures,
it had found that feeling,
the feeling that we always wished for.

If I could freeze time,
I'd do it now.
And just take a picture,
to hold this time in memory,

as a memory,
that life was beautiful.

I say it historically,
because we repeat history,
and so I say with confidence,
Life is beautiful,
and it will continue to be, forever.

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

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 addiction.

She was right. I could hardly sleep at night For every waking moment I was distracted by the beats.
Scrolling through history Passing each Kodak moment I had purposefully silenced my own The grid was feeding my veins.
An addict at best, I saw the ticker go down A minor twitch Branded jeans.
I landed. The writing finished. The grid connected. My addiction blinded me once more.
Note: Going through my phone and posting the pieces I wrote over this summer, posting a lot today given my prior frequency haha.
