That allows us to control our hands enough to reach into our mouths, past our guts, and grip onto the red spool within our chests.
To bring it out past our teeth and throw it into the stars.
This action, in turn, leads to freedom within the neuron firings in between thoughts and
let's not forget, toothy smiles.
Once our hearts are unraveled into the greatness (even if only for a second) within that period of time, that beating organ will be, literally and metaphorically, everywhere, at which point
all things will change.
Your eyelids will lift a little higher, revealing the fact that change, obviously, breeds fear. But, more importantly,
It forces the rarely viewed world of truth.

On a bus in the middle of everywhere
The distance between my mind and the vastness that is the universe
is becoming smaller and smaller.
I have come to belive that soon enough
my thoughts will leave my brain towards the stars
and instantly manifest
before my eyes.
We went on this trek through the Andies with these Argentinian kids and some kids from Main with no guide, down a road that was closed, for I think over a year, due to landslides. When we asked the best way to start this trail all the locals looked at us like we were nuts. Around an hour into it we had to climb over land slide debree near the edge of the biggest cliff I´d ever seen. One land slide was so bad that while scaling (with no rope) a piece of the rock broke from under my foot and I almost lost my footing and grip. Then I froze up and kinda freaked and Natalie had to talk me through it which was demasculating to say the least haha. Once we all reached the other side we were all on this lifetime high and had shared this new conection that only happens, I presume, in situations such as that. As if it weren´t beautiful enough now we were all humbled due to the fear that had shot through us from such a scary task. It got so dark that once we hit the main road our frinds talked to a guy in this army looking truck and he let us hitch it to the next town. The first night we crashed in tents in a small town that was called Santa Teresa then we hiked through the jungle on railroad tracks all the way to aquas calliente which is the base of Machu Picchu. We stayed at a hotel for 12.5 soles each, roughly $4 us dollars. All of us went out to eat then got some beers and hung out in one of our rooms and drank and played the most complicated Argentinian card game of all time. We woke up at like 4 am and started hiking up the mountain to Machu Picchu .The stars were so bright it was completely unbelievable. The mountains around here are rediculous. When we hiked up towards the expiered Inca village, about half way up, we were above the clouds, the first time I´ve experienced that out side a plane. It was too much. When we got to Machu Piccu I seriously couldn´t speak for the first couple seconds. I have never seen anything that amazing. Plus all the treking and risks we took to get there made it even more worth it. All in all it was more than an enlightening experience. I am thankful for the other worlds that I am becoming exposed too and thankful that things bigger than myself and my thoughts exist too make me feel one with this feeling of the need to see more that I´ve had since before I can remember.
PS I´ll post pics later the internet is horrible in this town.

So it's one week till I leave for South America and that should be crazy as shit. I'm nervous scared and hella stoked on the whole idea. To calm my nerves I went skateboarding around North park and just listened to my I-pod. I basically made a two song play list and just bombed up and down 30th. st (my favorite block that I'm not gonna see for a while) when all was said and done I was a lot calmer and realized how good these songs are.
