contours and longitudes

The contours and longitudes of this fine land I’m learning as well as the back of my hand. To do this I drive off and race through the night, with deep breathing exercise conquer my fright, then get lost and trust in my deepest instinct while clearing the dust from my eyes with a blink. It helps that Agung has a strong steady pull, that in her vast presence I feel subtly full of confidence, harmony, stillness, and joy though I may see nothing but rice, corn, and soy. With luck I’ll be able to fully explore this place and her people, their customs and more, their laughter and smiles, their tendencies too, on Bali I find myself daily anew.

just as good

Sometimes all that’s needed a foul mood to snap is a solid, hour-long, afternoon nap. Myself I just took one, then did my yoga, and feel just as good as if on La Droga. Sleeping when my body was calling out for it (and staying away from that chemical shit) when coupled with breathing and sun salutations does foster a lasting and healthy sensation that buoys the spirit and brightens the mood far better than choosing to just sit and brood. Therefore close those peepers and enter repose, awaken and strike up a fine yoga pose, then fix a light supper and sit down to write, this short, simple sequence can cause much delight.

Baroque classical music

In order to write I’ve developed a trick – I listen to Baroque classical music. The strains of Beethoven and Bach and Mozart awaken my senses with a bold kick-start; they occupy portions and parts of my brain that yearn for distraction again and again. The music I listen to cannot have singing for otherwise I will for sure get to thinking and just try to figure out what’s being said, which snuffs out my fires and makes them go dead. I first started doing this back in the day, on my Sony Walkman Beethoven would play, his final 9th Symphony was all I would hear through bright orange headphones attached to my ears. The cycle continues; it still serves me well; it’s nearly surefire, like ringing a bell; it helps me keep writing in silence or crowds, when people around me are noisy and loud. To do it just download a classical tune, rejoice that you’ve found a most timeless of boons, take pencil and paper or use a laptop, with practice you surely will come out on top.

just to sit

I yearn to be one with the flotsam and dust, to be in this manner is something I must. To unlearn my learning is another goal; to surf on the regular, get hella swoll. There lives deep within me way down in my loins, a treasure not measured in rupiah coins, it begs for attention most every day and sometimes can dictate my patterns and ways. To channel my powers and just to sit still, to master the urges and subdue the will, these are things that no one can give, none can steal, I’ll make of my weaknesses a filling meal.

A Democratic Missouri state senator representing parts of Ferguson who tweeted multiple times “fuck you,” at Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon defended her choice of words on Fox News Monday saying she did so because she was tear-gassed for three days.

“The reason why I used profane language is because he has allowed us to get tear-gassed for three days,” Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal said. “I am one of his senators in his party and he was at the state fair enjoying a country concert while we were getting teargassed and shot at. And yes, anyone who’s going to get teargassed deserves to say a few ‘F’ bombs here and there.”

“I represent my constituents, not Gov. Nixon,” the senator said. “He has been absent from the minority community his entire career and only comes before us when it is politically expedient for him. Or when he’s running for office, and because he has been outside of this community…let me tell you this, and this is important for your audience to know. He has still yet to come to ground zero. Yet to come to ground zero. He’s been in Florissant, he’s been in Normandy, but he has not spoken to the victims of the crisis we are dealing with and that is why I have called him a coward.”
