Spain - Day 9 - Pesadilla (11/05/18)

All the digitals I took.

I had to save my last roll of film for my last day.

I met up with Chantal this day

I attended a screening of Beetlejuice and I had the whole theatre to myself. The first time in my life.

Old Soul

I know you’ve been here before

I can see it in your soul

Know that you did see your dad

He was with you when you were sad

On that day

You felt safe for the first time

Within this long life you despise

Get away from every feeling you have

Pulsing sunshines

I can see your old soul so bright

I know you’re never gonna die

I can tell you’ve been here before

You have a beautiful soul

When you speak we listen

Spain - Day 7 - Cigarette City (11/03/18)

I went for a run and my lungs hurt after a bit. Cigarette city in full swing. I am trying to remember what I did this day.

This was a must see Stanley Kubrick exhibition it was fucking nuts.

I went looking for Nomad Coffee, but I found this other Cafe and ate a sweet potato burger. I will never find Mayonnaise so appetizing again in my life.

The Dark History tour was amazing thanks to this charming man. I saw him woo a girl through the whole tour like a pimp.

Spain - Day 6 - Up Too Early (11/02/18)

Anxiety kept me up. I found the only coffee shop open at 6:00 A.M. in Barcelona I think.

Getting lost in Girona was a highlight of the trip.

I want to come back here for at least a month.

I got a call from my little sister in the morning telling me she loves me and misses me. She is my favorite person in this world. I found this little ledge I thought about staying there for the rest of my life.

 Girona, Spain

Persistence of Memory

One day I will start again

Far away from my first love

On the day I go away

Far away from what I call home

Know that I planned to die here

Not today

Hopefully that’s 50 years away

August 2063 I say

I’ve been up and down this life before

I’d trade it all for a breathe one day

I’m going to return with understanding and meaning

I wish I could share this moment with you

Far away from where we first thought

I’ll grow old here, but my memories I never forget

Spain - Day 4 - Rainy Day (Halloween)

Biocici with the homie! A bike inspired coffee shop that became my go to coffee shop. The owner moved from Italy and he makes amazing pizza.

 With Paul at Biocici Coffee and Pizza!

“What are you going to do with it?”

“You want to go see the Agbar Tower? It lights up”

 Barcelona streets

Barcelona streets

Phallus

On rain filled days

In new shoes that don’t work well in rain

Step after step

The phallus calls

Ring, ring

Hurry are you on your way?

Step after step

Raise the umbrella

Jump over the puddle

Hurry down the street

Wait for the light

“I am been excited to see it”

I smile, aight

“It lights up”

We hurry down the street

Street after street

I should not be out here

Not at this moment

I woke up with a runny nose

I didn’t bring a sweater

But I am going to the Phallus

Hurry up the hill

Round the corner

Make it to the end

There it is

It failed to light up

It failed to come up

It failed to make a stand

What a dumb ass Phallus

I am worse off for coming to see you

 Jose

Halloween party! Great people horrible music.

Spain - Day 3 - Chocolate Croissant (10/30/18)

“You have nothing to worry about film can go in there.”

I proceed to shove my camera through a scanning machine.

How to get this Washed look:

Canon 400TX loaded into your camera and pass it through the scanning machine at La Sagrada Familia.

Voila!

 La Sagrada Familia

Opus

How did you put it together?

Did it come easy?

Did ideas ever come apart

When you set pen to it

Outlining the very ache

Days mulling over your opus

Perfect picture so often missed

We hope for it

Ugh, Hope is often for the lost

I hope for our sake that it works for you

You get to see what you’ve created

It aches you

Your crypt below

All here to watch you

Your opus it speaks

We all lift our heads to hear it

With our cellular phones held up above

Maybe we can see it clearer with our phones in between

Just how you would have liked it

La Sagrada Familia

Best part of this morning was the chocolate croissant I ate. It had the side crusted in chocolate and inside there was a bar of dark chocolate going through it.

Gaudi day! See it if you want.

I am trying to find an identity to Barcelona. It has been two days and I have not come up with anything.

Tourist

I don’t understand it

Tapas, Coffee, and people from everywhere

All foreign

Who the fuck is from here?

I am foreign also, but I want to learn

I want to know

Met a man from Argentina

A woman from Montreal

Two Women from Austrailia

A man from Chile

A beautiful woman from Venenzuela

All types of people

All types of tourists

All searching for something

We don’t know what that is

All these days piling behind me

When it’s all said and done

Going to find myself back in L.A.

Inside of a coffee shop

Sad about my world never being the same

Casa Pedrera redeemed Gaudi for me. It was intimate and I enjoyed the interior of the home. The roof was also amazing.
