seeking, formerly of innocence, presently of

 

its been a long time since ive posted much of anything on here...

 

in no specific order.

 

 

everyday for the past two weeks, ive listened to jay-z's 'blueprint' on the way to and from work. Jigga is seriously the dopest thing to happen to the world, since italians brought pizza here in the 60's.

But since variety is the spice of life, and a man can not live off hova alone, ive also been reading 'underworld' by don delilo. I think don is the guy who snuck a pizza over here in his suitcase. he must have been, cause he's italian, and if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck... ya know what i mean.

 

i wish i was in rome...

 

ive been kicking it around philadelphia for the last few months, hanging out in the park with hesh, sleeping on beardo's floor, and taking weekend trips to neighboring states fall in love and to paint. infact, ive spent almost more time other states and countries than i have here. without doing the math, i'd say i've slept in roughly 58 beds, in the last 4 months. and honestly, thats even being a big conservative, its probably higher. now, not all, or even most, of them were occupied by females, but there was definitely a few quality ones here and there. one, amusingly enough, who just called me for the first time in a couple months, as i typed this. anyway, the point is, that fucks with your 'bearings' as they say at sea. i frequently wake up and have no idea where i am. basements, backseats, hotels, futons, floors, air matresses... you name it, ive probably laid down on it recently. at some point, the abnormality of it all, has morphed into normalcy, and now to be in one place for too long seems strange. so as everyone knows, the show must go on, and now its time to pull stakes and skip town. where next?

 

dirty, dirty!

 

no, not new jersey, but the good old south.

this should be a fucking laughfest.

i'll bet if i took a poll, the collective south would prefer i didnt move there. im not sure what it is exactly... my outspoken stance on sloppy stock cap styles perhaps? who knows. ive talked so much shit about so many topics, its hard to keep track ya know?! anyway, the point is, this is gonna be hillarious for all involved. someone should really invest in a video camera and follow me around, cause this is 'son-in-law 2' in the making. fast paced city boy, slow southern drawls and mint julep? oh man. ten bucks says i get bit by some insane insect or animal in the first month, and have to visit the hospital. especially since im the type of guy that will go looking for alligators and shit. fuck, that would be funny if i got bit by an alligator.

 

people keep asking me how i can live like this. how i can just go where the wind blows.

 

'dont you want to have control over your life?' one asked...

'i have one bag of clothes, a small box of paints, a laptop, and i can go anywhere that i want to, anytime i want to, and you think that isnt having control over my life?'

its funny. when i decided to leave philly, i realized that i could go, literally, anyplace in the world i wanted. i have friends in 5 countries, a dozen states... i could go to any of those places and kick it for a while. and for the first time, i got scared. its the absolute truth, people do not want freedom. they want to be told what to do. sure, they want to think they have control of their destiny, but its lies. they like the security of responsibility....

now i guess, i realize i do to.

 

so ive got a year left. next fall i pack it all in, go to college and become a teacher. put everything ive learned over these past 20 something years to good use and change the world. or atleast try and help some kids figure some shit out.

im not gonna teach them about history though, cause if i tell them pizza was brought to america in 1960, im gonna get in trouble.

 

the older i get, the more i learn and the more i learn, the less i wish i knew.

i was traveling the south... i got bit by something... my hand swelled up like a hamburger... and this was a couple weeks after we found a brown reclouse in the house (and a couple months after the guy that lives there almost lost his leg because of one of those...)

 

as for waking up and not knowing where you are, i do that all the time... the worst (best?) was sleeping on a boat for a week... whenever i woke up and i was on the boat, i couldn't figure out why i was moving... then for a week afterword, whenever i woke up, i couldn't figure out why i stopped moving...

when I used to race I would spend a week or two aboard and my legs would get accustomed to the constant motion ("sea legs") and a few times when I got back on dry land I had trouble walking, I would kinda wobble even when I stood still... and ever since then I've been drinking heavily to combat this problem...

"who do you belive the man who told you honesty or the man who told you to your face he was a liar" my random quote anyways i like the whole philosiphy thing if by some un-fuckin-godly chance i were to become a teacher i think thats what i would teach. and also its good to realize you will never know everything because thats one more thing you do know

Seeking... The South as in where? And one other thing, how did you get to know people in other countries?

 

I think you directioning yourself towards being a teacher is a good thing. I seriously hope it works out, teachers are an overlooked commodity.
