Tuesday, January 26th, 2016 11:08pm 9149 Collins Ave, Surfside, Miami beach, Florida, Seaway condos, apartment 203.

So this is going to be a little bit about the current state of my physical/spiritual journey.

Right now I am typing this post on my computer. I am on ‘vacation’ in Florida where my grandparents have lived 6 months out of the year for the past 26 years or more… we are staying at a place in the next condo building over, a small two story place that has been here since the 20’s or 30’s and was recently bought by a larger corporation or money laundering whatever, in order to be eventually torn down or revamped, or whatever….

Anyways, my grandparents made a deal with these guys to let me and my family stay in these now empty condos for the week for free, so right now I’m writing this from a somewhat emptied out condo that building contractors and workers etc. have been using while they do their work.

The door does not have a key lock anymore, it has a punch code panel with numbers. The code they gave us for the punch code panel is 0,4,1,6. ……… my birthday just happens to be April 16th which is numerically written 0416….

watching his every action ripple
possibilities fractal 
every action equal and opposite
mirrored within and without
onward the journey flows
amplified and altered

Shadow & Memory

A few nights ago I had the first opportunity in my entire life to be at my grandparents home all by myself. Nothing was off limits, nobody was going to accidentally catch me rummaging through the drawers or secretly trying on my grandma's fur coat... These are only a few of the photos from that night, the rest shall remain our family secrets...
