A Website dedicated solely to my unique set of beliefs, insights, morals and values as they remain too complex to not have their own name.
I love things that make you think twice,Independent Coffee Shops, and being a piece of the global community. I have a strange affinity for Latin American culture, Nicaragua in particular. My day feels oddly unbalanced if it does not start with a downward facing dog. I have developed a newly found appreciation for punk shows and deeply enjoy the hidden sense of community among what I have experienced to be an amazing group of down-to-earth individuals. I enjoy the stride and sound of an authoritative click originating from 3+ inch heels. I think insight can be gained by thinking about any discipline philosophically. I am overwhelmed by the vast array of knowledge and wisdom I am engulfed in and disappointed I humanly cannot obtain it all. Though I remain enlightened and empowered by the realization of my own personal limitations. At any point I am up for a conversation entering the wee hours of the morning talking about the trials and tribulations of the globe or anything else under the sun. I tell people how it is because the world is already full of illusions. I still however remain baffled at my inability to remember the longitude and latitude of my keys, phone, or wallet at any point in time. Graciously open to new instruments including the most sacred sounds echoing from the human body, to the violin, or the Djembe despite my atrocious lack of rhythm. I do a hauntingly accurate impression of my 75-year-old off the boat Italian grandmother and enjoy authentic Italian cooking to raw fish wrapped in seaweed. The list goes on as I'm sure it does for most, but lastly I truly appreciate the uniqueness of each individual while seeing no matter how seemingly different we all are, we are all connected.

An oversimplification of the structure of United States society, oddly enough relatively accurate in retrospect. Ideas of the American Dream are glamorized in reality TV shows like American Idol and The Apprentice to give the illusion of America's favorite tale to tell of Rags to Riches. More often than not the class someone is born into allots them a selection of opportunities limited on one end and plentiful on the other. Rain may be an accurate character to choose for the bourgeois because they do impede the Spider's development but it is by nature, the bourgeois may more often than not be rich by luxury of inheritance and generational privilege and may know no other way except to flourish with the resources inherited. If only that waterspout was a ladder...
