So I’m starting to come out of hibernation,
The den is warm, but limbs stretch
Hands reach
Eyes flutter
Ears listen
Muscles ask to be used
Tummies demand a lack of abuse
The den is warm, despite it’s being on the floor
Comforting cement with a thin carpet and and inch of foam
A beds a creature comfort for which to call home
But the den is warm
And there’s fire in the heart
And creaking in the joints
And poppinginto places
With christmas lights as dim ambience
Seeking, craving, wanting, lusting
To make art.
Hammer and nails,
A hand saw and pallets.
I could make so much.
A needle foot for a sewing machine.
I could create so much.
Canvas for a hungry mind,
Brimming till bloated,
I could express so much.
The long travel made me weary and excited, bleary eyed and joy seeing, aware of what I subconsciously knew, and tipped icebergs for that which I looked.
Oh this hibernation is almost done.
Perhaps with a mattress there would be another.
Not fully awake yet,
But I remember my hunger.

Various Synthetica-Metric quotes. No matter what Metric makes me feel better, and inspires me so. So so so good. :)

Some of us are wild ones, ever underwanted,
I believe
I can think for myself,
I’ve got something no pill could ever kill

Hey, I’m not Synthetica, oh
I’ll keep the life that I’ve got, oh
So hard, hard to resist Synthetica, oh
No drug is stronger than me, Synthetica

We’re all the time confined to fit the mold
But I won’t ever let them make a loser of my soul" -Synthetica

"(Advice to heed)
And even though we long to shut it up
We could never choose
(Advice to heed)

I wanted to be part of something
I got nothing but time
So the future is mine" - Nothing But Time

"Hangman we played blind man’s
Bluff ‘til they stopped the game, Youth without
Youth born without time, Youth without
Youth, can you read my mind?” - Youth Without Youth
"I make
All that I believe
I set myself free
So take all the time you need
And let yourself be” -Artificial Nocturne

"I’m rolling in for a seven day weekend
Living up again to my old reputation
Can you cover me?
Cause I got no armour
I’m speeding out of reach
Oh, you’re the one I had to meet
Walk fifty city blocks down but they always find us
Wanderlust will carry us on
Will there ever be a place for you and me?" -Wanderlust
"Halfway starts with happiness for me
Happy in the nighttime, howlin’ at the moon” - Lost Kitten

It’s too late in the day,
Too late in the day to turn it around or change my mind
It’s too late in the day to take you on all the rides
It’s too late in the day to tell me I’m off the path
We’re already in the aftermath” - Clone

Out of place all the time
In a world that wasn’t mine to take
I’ll wait 

Nights are days

We’ll beat a path through the mirrored maze” - Breathing Under Water

I’ll shut up and carry on
The scream becomes a yawn” - Dreams So Real


Black sheep, come home
Black sheep, come home
Black sheep, come home

Hello again, friend of a friend
I knew you when
Our common goal was waiting for the world to end
Now that the truth is just a rule that you can bend
You crack the whip
Shape-shift and trick
The past again

I’ll send you my love on the wire
Lift you up every time
Everyone, ooh
Pulls away, ooh
From you

Got balls of steel
Got an automobile for a minimum wage
Got real estate, I’m buying it all up in outer space
Now that the truth is just a rule that you can bend
You crack the whip
Shape-shift and trick
The past again

I’ll send you my love on a wire
Lift you up every time
Everyone, ooh
Pulls away, ooh

It’s a mechanical bull at number one
You’ll take a ride from anyone
Everyone wants a ride
Pulls away, ooh
From you

So it’s been a year.

I’ve traveled across the vast land of Canadia, mostly by hitch hiking.
I spent two months in Newfoundland AND Labrador. 
I made a beautiful German travel friend and hitched with her from Maine, USA to California, USA. We stopped in Colorado and the Grand Canyon. 
I hitched down and through Mexico twice. Went to a World Rainbow Gathering in Palenque. Joined an R.V. Caravan in San Diego, and drove, gas jugged all the way to a Missouri Regional Rainbow Gathering. Got on a bus in the caravan and got to Montana. Hitched to the National Montana Gathering. Got on a new bus with veggie oil conversion. 
My camera has been dead and gone for over half of this trip, but I am loving life all the same.
