I wake next to,
long sought.
An ease of comfort,
easily fallen into.
Deja Vu in the bathroom,
a dream months past,
same apartment,
don't recall the scene.
I was still,
trying to recall.
Bridge came into town,
as things started.
A good wingman.
The fact were friends.
Good indicator.
Concerts, climbing,
great chemistry.
We're constantly amazed.

June 01, 2003- Arrving in Madrid and San Sabastian

<2:53 PM (Idaho) 11:53 PM (San Sebastian)
What is this? Third, forth day in Spain ? Thursday….miercoles, viernes, sabado…. four days I guess. At times it seems like the longest and shortest four days I have ever had. The week or so before I left Idaho went by in no time. It makes a bit of difference when you have no home and keep all you shit in a locker, hoping the whole “Open after 24 hours thing," doesn't include your locker.

I still don't know what to think. It is quite a bit better now that I have a place. I think the traveling life would be fine, had I packed for it, instead I packed for living for three months. I have to admit things did not get off to a good start in Madrid . I still get pissed off about the pick-pocket that tried to nab me on the Madrid metro. I am so oblivious to the customs I still don't even know what I could have said or done. It didn't help that I was loaded down with all bajillion pounds of my pack and sweating like a pig… San Sebastian is nice, it's small, yet still huge. I can easily [as much as my poor feet will let me] walk the whole city, yet there are still 250,000 people packed here.

The fact I can comprehend little to no Spanish doesn't help, I feel as if I am at a big disadvantage, “Lets take advantage of the foreigner” sort of thing. It's funny that I can actually say something like that when I have met so many nice people. First there were the other students I met in Miami : Caleb and Julieann… it's too bad I had to take a shit and miss getting Julieann's email, we hit it off the little we were talking, both lost in a sea of people, unaware of the tidal wave about to hit us.

There was a lot about Madrid I didn't like, the pick-pocket of course, the heat {in combination with the weight of my pack and the breaking buckles}, and lets not forget the prostitutes in the park derece de el alberque. Seriously, the first thing Caleb and I say on our way to find the hostel and I figured later, the reason we missed it, was because of the topless black prostitute on the phone. Let's not forget the fairly decent one we saw get picked up, or the tens of others we saw in their short shorts. It wasn't a good impression. Caleb and I had a decent time tooling around Madrid , doing the few things that we had to do, but it was more like a sailor desperately clinging on to the capsized boat. Two lost Americans just wanting to hear familiar sounds. We then parted our ways, him to go to Morocco , me to the hostel surrounded by whores. After a mad dash across the city by metro I got there to enjoy a meager dinner minutes before the cafeteria closed. Although it wasn't the best, I ate every last bit, not knowing when I could truly afford eating again. Needless to say I hate the constraint of money, especially when so far away and after my parents asking me hundreds of times if I had enough money to do this, maybe I should have done that budget a couple months ago instead of on the plane to Madrid . I then met David, an Italian who had been studying Spanish for the last year and traveling throughout, and one of the nicest guys I have met. I first met him once I got in from eating and he started talking in Spanish, after the frozen look of confusion he saw upon speaking Spanish, he started talking to me in fluent English, and although I knew it wouldn't help my endeavors to learn Spanish, I replied in English. Since there was nothing to do and I didn't want to leave the razor wire fences of the hostel, we talked about everyday sort of stuff while walking around the hostel. Met a couple of hot German girls, who we found after a few minutes to be 16, could have fooled me. The hotter blonde one was fascinated with the fact I was American, I think maybe a little attracted, but who knows. Having nothing better to do, and being exhausted from the trip, we went to sleep early. This was the first of many sleepless nights for me, my mind constantly thinking of what the fuck I was going to do the next day…. Hopefully now that I have a place of semi-permanence, things will be better.

The next day, David and I made our way to the nearest metro stop and soon parted our ways. I forget where he was going, but I had to get out of Madrid . I went to the bus station Caleb and I had located the day before and bought the ticket to San Sebastian . I waited next to a Spanish guy and although I couldn't say anything clear to him, we still communicated on the basic level of admiring the fine women walking by. Bien o bonita!

Next was the 6.5 hours bus ride next to the Spanish teacher of 37+ years, all I really got out of that trip was a few picture of the county-side [not as alien as I though it would be, yet still the buildings we as old as America] and an apprehension that I would be hopelessly lost due to my lacking in Spanish skills. Although I felt she was annoyed with me, the old lady helped me and got me on the right bus to go to La Sirena hostel. After a few more “Donde es….[point to hostel address]” I arrived at the hostel, only to find I could get a room for one night. I then met my new roommates and friends. I was happy to hear an American voice, it belonged to Jared, a surfer from California starting the second week of a two month tour of Europe, I also me Cayson, an Aussie who had been all over the place, including Canada most recently to go snowboarding, and our neighbors from the Canary islands, only the boyfriend could speak English, but the girl was super-model hot. All but Jared left, so we went out to explore my new home. The beach I came to find was not as good as I had originally hoped, the water was cold and it was hazy from the marine layer in the air. Jared and I found a little cafĂ© and had some very un-Spanish sandwiches lathered in mayo [sick!!] and we glared at by the old man behind the counter. Once again I was mute when it came to the Spanish part of conversation with people and was lucky Jared was there. We went back to the hostel only to meet our other roommate C. That was all we knew him by, because we couldn't remember or even pronounce his last name. C was a little guy from Bankok who had graduated from and art school there and was awesome. We looked through him water-color book and saw pictures from almost everywhere in Europe and many from India . He then showed us his true love, his sculptures. He had a picture book with the most amazing stuff of stone, metal and wood, one which was in the center of Bangkok . The guy was seriously amazing at his art and cooler still because he pointed out good places for me to go climb at around town.

It's so funny, although all of this was only Friday, I get impressions of these instants more than anything… and I haven't even had more than 4 drinks since then. Which leads me to my next moment in history: Cayson showed back up from who knows where with a couple beers, he offered me one, it was no problem since it was only .22 euro, a nice pils from Germany. Edwardo soon showed up, I can definetly say my first impression of him wasn't the best since he was fairly silent, maybe the fact that Cayson was loud and brass in comparison to Edwardo's silent, just-off-the-plane, being that made me think this… whatever. Cayson, C, and I decided we would check out the Friday night life.

It is late though, so I will get back to the rest of the weekend, Claire who knew 5 languages, the girl from Twin and the new place for Jared and me.

The feeling from Down Under

A busy month behind and ahead.
Hope for a calm December,
but doubt it.
My calender shows it,
Aya ceremonies,
and a gimpy dog left in Idaho.
Since then studying,
Halloween was amazing.
Tried hustling for TWD party,
volunteered at zomBcon,
Shamen costume a hit.
Sat night Smoking Bill at Julia's,
many friends,
a drunk retard pawing me,
while others girls eyed me.
An Aussie friend of Kim's,
short skirt,
slutty baseball outfit.
Her 1st Halloween.
She also imbibed a bit much,
I was more than willing to help.
I was sober,
gave her a piggy back ride,
silky smooth legs
wrapped around my bare torso.
Squeals about her bum showing,
kissing on my neck and ears.
Devonn gimping,
the rest trailing.
At Jesse's complex we passionatly made out,
til the rest arrived.
D is a wasted mess.
Tips over the couch 1st thing.
I proceed to ignore her,
secretly flirt with Janelle.
Leave when the awkwardness is too much,
make my decision.
Take D home.
Walk her downstairs.
She falls 1st thing.
Flag down a cab,
walk her to her buildings gate,
tell her I'm not coming inside.
Go back to the party.
We have a seance for Jesse's dead neighbor.
Now the only 'awkwardness' is due to my past,
with Ellen.
It's fine in my head,
I assume in Ellen's,
not Janelle's.
Doesn't stop her from following me into the hall,
Sobriety comes to my aid again.
Offer to drive the girls home,
no cab costs,
more opp for me with her.
I ended up spooning with her on the couch,
for the few hours until work.
Tried and denied.
The next day she went back to Vancouver.
I've been planning my trip since.
Everyday her texts start and end my day.
I'm elated.
I'm also realistic.
She's hot and 4 hours away.
Since then I've learned,
Jesse tried cockblocking me,
telling her I don't have a home
and a STD.
Ellen helped me out.
As I'm dancing at Julias
J-"I can't tell if your friend in the bones is hot."
E- "Yeah! Go for it. He's great in bed."
Her words, thus far-

The conversation has continued.
For better or worse,
she still calls,
although I confuse and frustrate.
Chocolate stawberries,
17 y.o. dog 2 years gone.
Missing wine and bath time.
She misses me...
and my wicked ways.
She hates men,
I'm rude for numerous reasons,
I worry her,
she doesn't know about us.
SHe wants to go out on a date,
she doesn't want an open relationship,
she is willing to come see me.
My living situation is known.
A busted tailbone at 7.
I didn't seem interested in her day,
I'm too busy for her.
She's been last priority too many times.
She can't sleep thinking about me.
'Distance makes her double question things.
We would be better as friends.
We're so different in every way!
I like u but there is always something upsetting me.'
I reply I'm calm like a monk.
She's just a stress case.
Constantly blowing me up
'I'm a shmuck lol'
She's glad she met me.
'I may get angry withu doesn't mean I think bad of you!
Mozzies LOVE me!
Still not sure about us btw'
Every guy she dates starts working out after they meet.
WTF am I getting myself into?
I think of the potential,
but damn!!
Haven't even made her squeal in delight,
and that's usually when the crazy switch gets switched.
On top of everything else right now,
this is just more silly stress.

Before 9/11/10
Preparations have been made.
Brew is cooking.
I am ready to don white.
Tabla rasa.
Regardless the events ,
of the day,
All done and over.
All that matters is I am Here.
Be present.
It is all I know,
What do I want tonight?
It's not a workout plan.
Bigger pecs,
cut abs.
Tonight I am not sure
what/where I want [to go].
I am content to be led.
Whether it's through
or my subconscious.
I want to tap into the natural.
The forgotten realm
modern day has
Dispelled as superstition or myth.
The connecting thread
between it all.
What symbolism will come out.
Rhythmic chanting.
Rattling beads.
Earthy aroma.
The humid air.
Transport to the jungle
we came from.
When 6th sense kept us alive.
Even without brew, I'm feeling...
We sang to _______.
We stirred.
Imparted good energy.

Days later-
slightly dejected.
Subconscious alterations not as satisfying.
MEdicine imbibed.
Nothing feels different.
Which could be for the best.
Reiki manana.
See who/what is with me.
Will the giraffe turn to Anubis?
A question asked numerous times.
In different situations.
Why not me?!??
I had prepared for the extreme.
I dressed in accordance.
Ritual adhered to.
To eager??
Years of anticipation.
Hours or preparations.
For a millenia un-experienced...
It was a deep slumber
Should have closed the circle,
but responsibilities ruled,
phone works both ways.

Lost things

I last met the girl,

of my dreams,

when I stopped.

Admired beauty.

Time to breath,

to think,

Yet I want to go.

To converse.

When I do stop.

No one is around.

Without a phone,

lost being a guide,

and explorer,

I feel more alone.

SO many people.

I want here.


Even my dog.

A vacant hole inside.

The beauty of the world,

not enough to fill it.

Ocean surf in front,

bluffs behind me,

I've still been happier.

With Her.

That is ,

all the Her's.

Moments shared,

longed for.

I can only hope it will come.

And stay.

A storm passed?

July 2 7:19am-
T- U should be awake right now cause.... No.... strike that... I should have taken advantage of the moment, kicked jamie out and fucked u for what may very well b the last time. But oh well... what can you do? ;)
me-Well now I am! And teh last time I have sex with anyone will be b4 i die. I may not be worth a shit as a boyfriend but I do have some redeming qualities
T-ur so funny... but what a waste to wait til u die my dear...
T-Well till before the moment u die or...?
me-I do have a house to myself... let me tend to the critters and i'll be over
T-I can always count on u to be the dramatic one ;)
T-Wanna come over an watch a movie with me an pretend its simple again?
T-Okie dokie. I hope you like black metal
me-As long as your not refering to the gun lorenwants to shoot me with :)
T-No. I made sure to txt as he was goin to work.

Crisis averted.
Or continued?
An awkward return of items.
Unreasonable protectivness.
Easy when you get told one version.
Back to 'home',
a short couch,
some stinky bitches.
The next morning I awake to the above conversation.
Ex sex is the best.
She comes back.
We watch movies and all is simple.
Drink a lot.
Her secrets revealed.
Yet still talking to me.
She gets pissed I'm tired.
Then she takes a nap.
A mellow night,
in a warm bed.
Jealousy rears its head,
a promised ride denied.
Lucky for her,
I was going down,
to Zombie town!
Bevs and bites,
pillows and blankets,
fake blood and makeup.
A day in the sun,
a shamble in Fremont.
We were planning on watching the movie,
hence the prep,
but plans changed.
To the Mercury.
Once again we waited.
Guested in,
to the dank smokey den.
Full of ugly people,
hiding in black.
Except the flame haired guy,
two women on his arm.
We shared.
Anger came later.
At the man with dragons.
An arm around her waist,
a twisted wrist.
Wish I had broke it.
Along with the candle in his temple,
hot wax in his eye.
Rage unknown!

T-Nah. Dog replaces u well better conversationalist :) just cant sleep
Who did I miss more?
Who causes me less strife?
T- We just got back from a day at the beach. How r u?
T-Sweet. She-ra and I r goin to a drag show tonight.
T-Sooo I have a wedding on saturday. Wanna go with?
T-Im passing on the wedding on sat. Highland games that day. Wanna go?
July 8
drive up to see my bitches,
dog sit.
Buy requested beer and rubbing alcohol,
take out the purple.
Sleepless night for her,
ended up in recliner,
leave me undisturbed?
Although I sleep like the dead.
Wake her to tell her I'm leaving.
Want her to come,
go for a hike,
a lake,
the ocean.
Escape the heat.
She's running on few hours of sleep,
in multiple days.
I think some nature therapy will help her.
She thinks I'm an asshole.
'You'll just hold me back."
Not my best choice in words.
The truth.
But it hurts.
I leave so she can rest.
T- Come back when ur done.
T-If you were nice u would have stayed. Nevermind. Dont come back.
me- if you treated me like a friend instead of a foe... I know you feel bad but hating on me wont help.
I really like you and want to be around you but there are times I wonder if i'm just your whipping boy fuck toy
I wonder why i keep coming back for me
T-Ur not a whipping boy. or the center of the universe, drama king. Believe it or not this has nothing to do with you. But u have no remorse or understanding of what this feels like. U think I can just shrug it off an go hiking, and when I cant you make me feel bad. Thats the last thing i need. I cant relate to ur lack of compassion. SO dont bother 'coming back for more'. So sorry to inconvenience u. But u knew what u got urself into beginning. Did I not warn you here.. so it is what it is.
me-I'm sorry you perceive it that way. GOing to take the blind dog for a walk then go to deception pass. I would love your company on the drive.
T-well im home. Otherwise, Id guess id be ur company, much to ur disdain it seems like.... anyway, have fun.
me- I want to share the experience with you but I don't wnat you to tax yourself. We will mosey along at an easy pace. I just think some nature will help.
Leaving my cousins. Want to come play in the water?

A couple hours on the beach,
a bridge,
no thoughts of jumping.
Just think it would hurt.
How tall is it?
Back to reality.
A couple beers,
a light snack.
A nap interupted,
by her text.
Go to her place.
Intending on just getting leash,
Thinking she once again hates me.
Smooth things over,
til things get too hot.
Tacos and pick tacos,
do not mix.
I make it up to her....
a few times.
Early riser,
tend to doggies.
Highland games.

Thursday, July 1, 2010

on and on....

t- Ur still comin tonight right?
me- of course. I feel bad enough you waited this long. Plus I was going to do a couple massages.
t- What do massages have to do with anything?

to which a reply is pointless.
