Lying in the room with wet hair. making wine syrup to drizzle over peaches. Yesterday I wasn’t fully awake or aware in my conversations.
Thoughts of renewal, surrender, pleasure, life, pain, death, marriage, all of that spins like a little tornado in my head.

July 10th- Sharp
Book: Ambition and Survival: Becoming a Poet. Full of words that cut deep past all the fake layers of the heart into the real flesh of life.
I enjoyed the chapter called…a Mile from Hell. He describes the missionaries that he meets as burnt and strange. An accurate depiction of how alien things can be when you step out of the country and the suburbia that California offers.
Quiet time and prayer in a non-AC cafe in West San Jose, hiding in a shaded corner in the path of a ceiling fan. The ambiance of the cafe is cozy, with a few armchairs and a low coffee table, as well as tables scattered here and there.. And quiet, most studying or having personal conversations.
July 9th 2014- Alive
Trying to think about other planets, other stars, other material places where you would not be able to breathe..
I was praying with two friends on the bleachers near the track of my high school as the sun set across the hills.

July 8th- I’VE NEVER…taken a picture of myself totally naked.
Bare skin. What God created. Am I hiding behind this skin?
July 7th, 2014 - FIRST- time that I’ve gone into my garden this month/year to explore and take pictures.
It was better than sitting in front of a screen. Just me, the flower, the click of the camera. If you look closely at all the foliage, and the veins of each flower and leaf being shot through by the sun, it can take your breath away and you’re suspended in a moment of joy.
When I wake up there is the sound of crackling brown paper, scraping ladders, and hissing paint cans.
My blue house is being coated in a coat of cheery sunshine yellow.
When will my photography advance? Will I let it advance?
The photo below was taken while trudging around my uncle’s neighborhood. I was tiptoeing, sweating, focusing the lens.
Lemon water rolling around on my tongue cooled me down.
