Eat my insides first

The jonquil must manifest itself
as periwinkle to some spectrum;
dichotomize this vision quest of
tragic proportions and help me
crinkle the hinge to create a
mycenaean escape route.
The deguerrotype of this
lipsynced dodder
gives us one chance
each time to grapple the jovial edge.
Homogenized rights are discarded
like a proxy of voluminous bubbles
rising to the surface.
The not so humble attempt to placate
the cultivated populace
climatizes the backfire of latent halide.

birdz and spiderz

like pretty little roses
these soldiers died
containing the last war
of infinity versus negative infinity

negative connotations
quickly were seen as perfect;
impel instant transformation
as braneworld recognizes itself

problematic sums of zero
fight their way to the surface
for the chance to pluck energy lines
to gather, sort, and distribute abundantly

alas, there are no recipients
except for everything;
the delicacy of temporal entities
fills the vessel with enough confusion

the goal is to encompass the sparkle
to harness what needs not be harnessed

Montezuma Yoga, Grafitti, and my final week...

Swimming in a waterfall in Montezuma.
Susan and the aptly named Mr. C (the dog) attempting to tackle the waterfall.
Trees growing out of rocks, what will they think of next?
Yes, that is bamboo. It's much taller than you can see. My question is where are all the damn pandas?

Some fresh graffiti right outside the studio in San Pedro.

Well, this is my last week of doing karma yoga in Costa Rica. I have enjoyed my time here and it has been challenging teaching in Spanish and trying to learn the language. The hardest part is answering the phones. People talk a million miles an hour and don't seem to understand the need to slow down to somebody who obviously can't hear very well. I wish I had increased my Spanish skills, but the language is damn difficult! Actually, there is so much slang here that even when I can pick out words that I know, I still don't understand a lot of the language. I am going back to San Diego and am going to be teaching there for a while and see what other opportunities arise.

These are pics from the weekend in Monteverde. Monteverde is a cloud forest. A pretty amazing place...rainforests, animals, and green!
Part monkey, part idiot.
My future home.
Yes, growth is plentiful here. Trees grow on other trees, plants grow on telephone lines, flowers grow on rocks with no dirt. It's amazing.

This is that translucent butterfly. They don't like to pose for photos, so it was a little difficult.
Here's the frog everyone sees on Costa Rican postcards.
