first make sure every belly is full

Yes, I am free. And with this freedom I am watching the sunbeams break through the branches, leaves, and shadows of the many trees. I am free to be one with the light, and I am free to be one with the shadow. What are you doing today?


I love Cuban music, poetry from long ago in Japan and China, and art deco buildings in old cities. I embrace the idea of space travel, but before paying for lift off I would have us first make sure every belly is full. And speaking of food, I like hot sauce on mine, and I crave coffee so strong that the neighbors can smell it. To watch the clouds drift across a blue sky pleases me, and so does the sound of an owl late at night. It is good, this life of mine. I slipped into this life like a kind child slipping beneath the blankets on a winter night. I hold my hands up to the moon and stars to give thanks, and the endearing light shines down on me with the sweetest love.
