Pumpkin Trees (Oct 4 2013)[i]

Forgotten dreams.

Getting out of bed around 12:45 p.m.

Cinnamon Raisin Bagel with Vegan Cream Cheese. Orange Juice.

I take my time at the Atlantic Garden Center off First Colonial in search for the perfect cactus. I settle on a medium sized Red-Headed Irishman (Rubrispina). Brief stop at Trader Joe's for some groceries.

At home. Researching plants and how to take care of a cactus.

Egg Sandwich with Mayonnaise and Tomato. Salt n Vinegar Chips. Aloe Vera Drink.

I'm not usually a big fan of TV shows and I'm also not one to latch onto a hype bandwagon but Breaking Bad came up on Netflix and I figured it would be harmless to give it a shot. After watching the first episode I can see why it's gotten such positive critical acclaim.

Practice at the storage unit with Calum and Josiah. Playing through songs and working out a set for tomorrow's show.

Honey Crisp Apple.

Pumpkin Black Bean Risotto with Mixed Greens, Carrots, and a Sour Dough Baguette.

Watching Breaking Bad.

James and Ana are hanging out in Josh/Sasha's bedroom. Sasha raves on about some bacon fest at The Scope this weekend. Ana skims through this book on Zen. James lies on his stomach on Sasha's bed. Eventually we migrate outside. I light up an old cigarello I found in the house.

You Can't Pick Your Friend's Noses (Oct 4 2013)

James: "You can pick your friends. You can pick your nose. But you can't pick your friend's nose."


James takes off. Ana and I take a walk through the neighborhood and across the street to peek into the bagel dumpsters. We discover one of those leaf grasshoppers on the ground.

She can't seem to finish describing this dream she had the other night. I don't know why; too many environmental things distracting her. And when explaining her holistic healing experience she won't tell me what the healer pointed out in her, a burden of fear or something. This frustrates me slightly that Ana hesitates to open up to me. I know she's afraid to get close and spill her guts out but I know she trusts me. I let it be though.


She accompanies me to the Trader Joe's dumpsters. We find a few salads, hummus, eggs, and a bushel of mini pumpkin trees, which we decorate around the house.

Coconut Water.

Sleep 5 a.m.
