I watched the sun set.

On a cloud-less vast horizon,

The star dipped below to birth a flood.

In the sky, the orange washed to amber to red.

In this year, I have grown in ways that I cannot fully understand.

I depart this city which feels closest to home.

I offer a small token of my love to hold.

Bless the people of the city.

Thank you, Los Angeles.

Gracias.

Lord,

Please walk with me.

On the shore of the Pacific Ocean,

I embraced your peace and glory with gratitude.

Please wash my scars, and wipe away my fear with a cloth of love.

To guide my mind and my heart, please continue.

By your grace, I will be forgiven.

Your love tempers me.

Amen.

Aw. That was lovely.

Living in a land of myth, if only for a brief spell. You did it.

I stood for 20 hours, and I have been awake for most of the last 40.

My packing schedule kept me packing right through the end of the movers' work in the apartment. I hope they don't have a five-finger discount fancy.

I should have bottled the weather.

The morning gives way to the wind, and it feels colder than it did at zero degrees at 6 AM.

Re: sending

Sometimes, I wonder if after death . . . if there was nothingness . . . if that wouldn't be a better option than accountability for one's actions in life.

Hopefully you'll be able to go back to LA one day. I know you'll get stuff straight and things will work out in the end :)

I missed the dawn on the mountains this morning.

That won't go away.

I left.

I should have looked you up and met for a dinner.

Even if we shared zero in common, it would have been swell.

How long were you here? And why was it temporary? Good grief I'm always behind on this kind of news. XD

I lived in LA for a year.

The lease is up Jan 1st, but I already moved my stuff back on the 19th, and I took a redeye home to Detroit.

My friends remain in LA. I can always return.

The words come when one concentrates.

I'm merely a vessel.

That is beautiful! And to think, I was just considering uploading some Red Hot Chili Peppers. Thank goodness, not this particular song, otherwise I'd be totally freaked out. :D

I tend to get the same ESP vibe that we have experienced also with ambientfusion and zboson.
