There was a reason, a motive to be.

The rays of light were on vacation,
The stars blocked by our civilization,
There was nothing to see, but in your mind,
There was clarity, there was a reason, a motive to be.

In thin air the friction ignited, the rays were
back at work and the gentle curves of this
newly lit match blazed your sight with opportunity,
An illusion of discovery was born.

No longer did you feel your way around,
Feeling was no longer necessary,
The rough walls were avoidable because now
these rays were your guiding stick.

Rotation after rotation it became commonplace,
With our vision defined and our emotions behind
We walked the easy path,
the one whose shape we did not make.

Your sensitive feet lost their touch,
The road was paved and unobstructed,
You zoomed past it all with no consideration,
No longer did you greet the world with touch.

Somewhere along the lines, vision made you blind,
so close your eyes and realize in time,

There was a reason, a motive to be.

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.
