The last time I felt this pit in my stomach was in Bali – last December… A physical pain that took over my soul for days. No matter how strong I may be emotionally, my life is complicated. This last moment was when a friend that I confined in, took a stab at my vulnerability & brought me down to earth.. in his words, at least… I wanted to feel alive again – so I took my friend on a journey to the volcano for his birthday. We drove on our scooters for 3 1/2 hours in ash, lava and rain to witness something majestic. I saw a puppy be thrown off the side of the road – that fu*ked me up hard… I saw villages washed away in the slush in moments… and people covered in ash from head to toe holding everything they owned in their hands.. My life was being shaken by mother nature and awaken by God. I knew I had one option – to keep going, and no matter what was on the other side, things would get better… As soon as we hit the top of the mountain.. two earth quake tremors shook the ground and the volcano spewed with ash.. I can visually see the ash cloud as if Im standing there again. Here I am, going thru life moments again – this time with love. It will never be the same .. I desperately need an escape.. and that’s how Im feeling right now – fighting for air and looking for that life-changing moment again. I’m waiting for it.
A beautiful, green Viper Pit snake appeared in my gang (driveway) while I was driving home with my friend visiting from Detroit. We had an epic night of dancing to dark techno in the city… At first, I saw this green shimmer and didn’t think anything of it… thought maybe I was tired. This gorgeous […]
