Grateful for the persistent feelings of positivity and joy that nature exudes
Relationships with people that are based off of love and care in an attempt to undermine quick, fast, and selfish relationships society wishes to value.
The music of Sam Cooke
Today, after getting a haircut, I was biking home and saw a man waving incessantly at me from his truck that was stopped at an intersection. As I neared I was able to make out his face and it was none other than a friend I had met in San Francisco. Interestingly enough, we are from the same hometown but never met each other until we moved to San Francisco for school and we ended up becoming pretty close, spending intimate, friendly, moments together on shrooms—which builds pretty interesting and strong friendships to say the least. Our last interaction was at a demonstration in San Francisco in which he seemed to resemble Anakin Skywalker when he was turning to the darkside (the best way I can describe it), he became extremely controlling and immature and made all the other organizers and protesters very uncomfortable—then he disappeared and I hadn’t seen him since. This was in 2012. He looked really good and was coming back from sitting in on classes at one of the junior high schools in town and he explained to me that he wished to become a teacher because he realizes how much these youth need great teachers because this town is such a brown, underserved community—we are both Mexican and completely agreed on this. It is very inspiring and reassuring to see him matured and serious and really about community, especially the one we come from. I had the same aspirations and I have since been extremely confused as to whether or not this is was I really want to do and seeing him really made me glad that I’m not the only one who feels this way. He gave me a ride home for the rest of the way and we talked about future goals and ideas and such, exchanged numbers, and started to plan a camping trip. Really glad I ran into this fella.
