The spirit graced me and I wrote it down.

When awakening time and again, I remained with trace memories of this other world. So taking the hint, I began grouping the blocks of hurried bedside notes to create a rough outline. For more inspiration and answers, I meditated on long train and plane rides, local hours-long drives, and at home to reconnect to the other world.(less)

I have chosen to work in the abstract of scaffolding cognitive kindle, reconstructing neuro pathways, and highlighting the deafening silent majority. Every alternate reality within our semi-shared experience seeks meaning via understanding from experience whether vicarious or not. Art is the vehicle to explore the planes of the unknown, induce reflection on the perceived river called reality, and the conduit that enables us to melt into one another and flow in solidarity.

In being more specific to an academic degree of necessity, I recommend reading the late Stanford Professor Elliot Eisner's, "Ten Lessons the Arts Teach". It mirrors my core attempt in thematic reasoning for students and adults alike.

Cancun on the Rock(s)!

Had a great visit to Alcatraz Island earlier in the year. (First time there.)  #amwriting



We just got back from Cancun, and it was awesome. So relaxing and all around fun! On one of our last days of vacation we took a Catamaran from Cancun to Isla Mujeres! It was such a relaxing ride with food and drinks and excellent service from the crew.
