I look up in my wandering and see a man on his bike.
He notices me and emits a cheerful “Good Morning”. I say the same back and feel a social unspoken rule has been broken. Nobody ever speaks to another in the desert. We are all protected by a sense of personal space.
All it takes is somebody who doesn’t conform and we are all in danger.
I wonder if I could become a non-conformist?
It’s black against the pale blue backdrop.
Its black and twisted and sharp in its nakedness. Its not unique to this place. There are countless black intersecting marks foregrounding the scene.
Not one of the people has looked at me this entire trip
I’ve done my share of staring at each of them, struggling to understand that behind that face, that skin, there is a human mind, a presence that is the center of its own universe.
“Do I feel ready? Hell no… I expect I will have to give a speech in front of everybody”
This time – one year ago – I was preparing for my final day at the office. I was worried about giving a speech.
I had decided to throw everything away, go back to university to finish the study I had started and given up on five years prior.
“Enthusiasm eludes me, how will I handle university?
It seems like a lifetime ago, but it has only been one year. The speech went alright by the way… I had headphones in and the entire office had collected behind my desk without me noticing… After that I just started worrying about how I would handle University…
University was fine too. I managed to do much better than I ever thought I could.
I suppose all the worrying is pointless in the end… with all the days that have passed it certainly seems that way.

Lately, I am so angry. There is so much anger within me that I don’t know what to do with it. Anger fringes the words I speak, the actions that I take. It leaks from my personality, becoming the constant embellishment of the life I lead.
I don’t want to be angry anymore.
Autumn is a favorite of mine…
It culminates in the fortunate mixing of the cooler season’s refreshing air and the warmer season’s sunny blue skies.

I’d ask you if you have ever had to stay strong when you felt the complete opposite.
I imagine most of you would say yes. I would then ask you to elaborate…Perhaps we could share some funny stories. Like the time I was so upset with a situation, that I went and brushed my teeth… my response to the stress and sadness was so strange that it I ended up laughing at myself.
I guess little things like that can be a relief to the pressure during hard times?
If you have ever experienced relief from a negative feeling or situation in a bizarre unrelated way, please feel free to share! 🙂
