November 13, 2016

I slept in a redwood forest.

I ate breakfast at dawn overlooking Lake Tahoe.

I swam in Fly Hot Springs under rainbows fading in and out of the clouds.

I was treated to a pork chop and applesauce dinner at Bruno’s.

I soaked in a hot tub shoulder deep with the supermoon as my only source of light.

I sweat in a sauna.

I did a fuckton of schoolwork.

I moved two pieces of one dead bird off the property so Cohiba would stop rolling in it.

I realized Ludwig and Cohiba are ready to hit the road anytime. This was easy and cost nothing. 

In the labyrinth, I learned that I am not my story. The past does not define me. Today, the future holds no outcomes. 

I am present. 

I am enough. 

As much as life throws us all a bunch of crap more often than we’d like, I STILL believe in magic. 



I am present.

  1. Cynthia, We met some twenty years ago, you probably don’t remember me. It was at Russ Leslie’s place a big fun family party. You left a big impression on me. We have occasionally crossed paths since then. I just came across this news of your loss. I am touched by the sweetness and strength here in your pages. I can see you have your eyes open and the family around you. I have moved away from the Bay Area and tho I return frequently I miss those fine people desperately…

    I am sorry for your loss.

    I still see the sparkle in your eyes and I am confident that the family will be there always for you.

    Your words here are clear and raw I feel your emotional intelligence, you inspire me that the world is less threatening because of the strength, love and pain that you share so freely. xx
