we went to the sea
and it was
fish tacos and ice cream
on the beach
laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.

during the winter
stopping it’s heart
thaws in the spring

what is an antipode?
two places diametrically opposite each other on the earth’s surface.
they are very rare.
what is the shortest route between them?
a straight line through the center of the earth.
i recently saw ‘vivan las antipodas’
released in 2011
directed by russian documentary maker
who had a radical idea
to visit these places
and shoot four antipodal pairs:
he filmed it in a way
turned the world
and back again
for 108 meandering minutes
i was blown away
by the beauty
some things are universal
under the big top in glen arbor, michigan
there’s always lots of action in all 3 rings
we relax and look ahead to another adventure tomorrow
Keep the circus going inside you, keep it going,
don’t take anything too seriously,
it’ll all work out in the end.

waking up on their first morning here,
the aussie joeys begin their day,
in the cottage
of their grandmother,
who loves them.
life would be perfect if:
Mondays were fun, junk food was healthy, drama didn’t exist,
and goodbyes were only until tomorrow.

the aussies have finally landed on the continent
and the little joeys have been like this since their arrival in nyc.
can’t wait until they hit ann arbor on sunday night.
jet lag is your soul trying to catch up after flying.
