I’ve never been to Africa But I have seen the Nile in your eyes And you have shown me what I knew To only sleep in desert skies I’ve never been to Africa But you’ve got a smile from Nairobi And wra…
On my first night in Buenos Aires, I looked up at the sky and was surprised to see stars, many of them, all of them bright. I haven’t been to many cities, but I’ve been to enough to miss the night’s sky in places like Chicago where the city lights drown it out. It took passing through the city’s planetarium exactly one week later to realize the sky looked different than I expected, because it is different here. “El cielo del sur” the posters read, the sky of the south. The pictures showed all of the constellations that can be seen from this side of the world. There are 11 in total, which is six more than the northern hemisphere has, I later found out. Half of those constellations have stars brighter than any constellations in the northern hemisphere.
For the last 20 years I’ve been living as if my country were the center of the world, only to discover yesterday that it is actually the southern hemisphere that faces the galactic center of the Milky Way.
Grateful to the people who helped me get through this beast of a year. Hopeful for what’s to come.
The world is weird, man. Weird and kinda beautiful.
She was the last person to screen-test, and I was so bored of it by then… . And then she came in, and it was like diving into whitewater rapids and having no desire to hang on to the side. Throughout shooting, it was wild and exciting. I couldn’t help but try to stay with her, keep pace with her and not let her get away.

Daily Photo- Ugh they make me want to die of envy
This year of my life has been an extensive case study about the ways in which people can suck
So happy to see my friends happy even if most of them are hundreds of miles away. That’s when you know you’ve been blessed with friendship - when just thinking about their happiness and your memories with them can fill your heart with such joy.
Every day, I open up my laptop to a reminder of that day, that moment. My screensaver background captures the time nearly four years gone—A black and white photograph of a French man with shadowed eyes and unshaven face, feeding birds in mid-flight in front of Notre Dame in Paris. I remember watching him that day. His arm held out with the poise of a straightened back, looking as if it were naturally born to be a perch. Bird after bird would fly to his hand, sometimes in groups, and he held onto the bread just tight enough to feed them all so one bird wouldn’t carry the whole loaf away. It was art, the way he did it. He saw me and handed me a piece, and then he scoffed at me when the first bird that flew up to me knocked the entire piece to the ground. He knew how. I didn’t. It was his city. Not mine. I read his belittling look and wrinkled expression like a book. There are things I don’t know that have nothing to do with language.
Must not sleep. Must do work.
Dreaming of summer rainstorms and dance parties and making a mess baking cookies.
We’ll be, We’ll be.
One of these mornings,
We’ll be, We’ll be home."
