I would feed you. I will learn from you. we could do this the easy way or the hard way... choice is yours. I church for sport. I am not religious though I consider myself to be a spiritual person. Music is my Manna, my taproot, without it I might wither. I have an intimate relationship with cacao, herbs, and textiles. I have been accused of leaking fifth dimensional puddles.

I have arrived.Wed, April 9, 2008 - 10:26 AM permalink - 0 comments
amid my travels I have come upon these moments.
and future folding upon themselves.
dreams of mine and dreams of others
found to be relevent only now that we have met, here. far from home
in seemingly unlikely places.
as far as I can tell calling these meetings coincidental
lends to undermine their significance.
I thought I was just going to guatemala, because it felt neccesary.
It was and is. although
I just spent 10 days unexpectedly moving about Honduras crossing
paths and weaving experiences that were as peculiar to me as those I shared
I am skeptical to believe, as I tend to be;
however I think perhaps they were more than fortunate chance meetings despite knowing that had I been in another place at the same time I would have also had a great opportunity to have significant meetings, ...
as such these are the times we live in..
I have arrived now in Nicaragua, but really I am on the fabled island of Ometepe or at least I was yesterday. a mysterious place overcast by imerialism like much of surrounding lands. here there remains hope. the possibility of a sustainable future that has not yet forgotten all of its old word values. but is aware that past is not a place they can return to.
like many they desire education in the hopes that the rest will follow.
deforestation has laid waste to many of these lands. topsoil washed away with the rains what..s left in most places is depleted of once nutrient rich soil now speckled with shanties and starving cattle. so many perpetuating cash crops to buy the things they need instead of growing food.
I used to laugh uncomfortably at impovrished americans who after feling like they were trapped in their caste would take what little money they had and buy the appearance of wealth and comfort
fancy clothes a bigger tv chrome rims and a kickin stereo on there car with no muffler and rusty doors
but to see how that plays out here I can..t help but feel responsible
we have somehow convinced them that they want what we don..t need
every where you go you see the remenants of consumerism in the shape of plastic bags, wrappers from candy and chips and plastic bottles with nowhere to put them
garufino children.. wanting and wearing g-unit shirts cause there made with better cotton
I see how people come here and want to help so they stay and I bless them in the hopes that they can enlighten and be enlightened
but with out having a change back home
creating better role models as individuals, comunities cities states and countries..
recanting the ways in which we chose to develope
and changing the ways in which we choose to spend money
how and what we invest in
what kind of food we grow and how it..s grown
these peoples are doomed to consume our slack
to absorb our waste
to pollute OUR lands
as we are in this together....
I have recently accepted that this internet is here for us and I am just being stubborn not to utilize what we already have.. I am glad to have met you and I apologize for limiting my ability and availability for Communion .... besides how else am I going to keep up with what all-ya'alls been up to anyhoo?Thu, October 25, 2007 - 4:04 AM permalink - 0 comments
