Notes from my 49th trip (Ritual Yawanawa)

It's funny how the place we go for the cure is the same place that gives us the poison.

The questions w/ no answers hurt the most.

The purpose of one who cures is to stop pain.

No matter how little space you think you have, the person next to you is your brother.

If you truly love someone, you must accept them as they are.

It's never too much, Flora.

The exit is just as important as how you enter.

You could see the sunrise in a field of growing carrots.

You start to get good at Jiu-Jitsu when you use your head as a weapon.

Being Asian in Brazil is one of the funnest and funniest experiences to ever have.

I live a real love. That is enough for me to be satisfied w/ life.

A lot of my girl friends think that Flora treats me poorly. Some of that I agree w/. The rest of it is simply because they don't understand her. And that is my fault, in not explaining it well enough.

A lot of how Flora is w/ me is out of a fear to be in love w/ me. And I can think of a couple times where I made her unsure.

Politicians are a funny bunch. Come election time, they do their damnedest to appear straight-edge, clean-cut, honest. But at the core (and this is of course a generalization), they are the most crooked of us all.

Fuck the Iraq War. That shit started when I was a freshman in college. It's like, you made your money, and wars are much more complicated to end than most of us know. But for Christ's sake, end the fucking thing.
