You are not accidental. Existence needs you. Without you something will be missing in existence and nobody can replace it. That's what gives you dignity, that the whole existence will miss you. The stars and sun and moon, the trees and birds and earth - everything in the universe will feel a small place is vacant which cannot be filled by anybody except you.
This Bob Marley song follows me around and haunts me on this island. No matter where I move, I keep hearing it, keeping the dream alive.
This particular DnB version however, I havent heard out here yet. But its by far my favourite mix. Reeeealy dreamy.
Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 26 Commander Scott Kelly of NASA and Flight Engineers Cady Coleman of NASA and Paolo Nespoli of the European Space Agency offered Christmas and New Year's greetings to all people on Earth from the orbital outpost on Dec. 21 as they flew 224 statute miles above. Kelly, Coleman and Nespoli are part of the six-person crew that includes Russian cosmonauts Dmitry Kondratyev, Alexander Kaleri and Oleg Skripochka.
covered in pen and paints
always buzzing round my head
curling tuggy fingers around my hair
pointing new questions at everything
baby monkey mommy monkey piggy back gripping
pressing into steps too giant to climb without
shrugging parents loose crossing streets
massaging tired necks and feet
fashioning spears out of rock
moulding animals and people out of squidgy things
gripping onto handlebars so tight they calloused
chocolate icecream muddy fingernails straight after cleaning
climbing into my neck and curling to sweet smells of hair and cheeks
those perfect little hands I once held and kissed
oh how I MISS those little hands
Once the most secret residential area in the Soviet Union.
So I have a small obsession with ghost towns and abandoned buildings and places. Two of my favourite re-inhabited places are Terlingua TX and Bisbee AZ, places I will continue to visit and live in from time to time. I'm going to start sharing all the weirdest and strangest abandoned places I know of.
In 1962, a little fire in Centralia (Pennsylvania) migrated into an exposed vein of anthracite coal under the town. Although the flames on the surface were extinguished, the coal continued to burn underground for many years until a fire in 1984 got completely out of control and the city had to be evacuated.

I couldn't believe how lucky I was last night, to find myself alone this 2am, because for the first time in 372 years, a total lunar eclipse occurred on the date of the northern winter solstice.
The clouds had parted for the occasion and the sky was at its blackest black, framed by the edges of lush jungle trees on this sleeping island. It was a spectacular show with blinking and shooting stars, with only one wish made. On every one of them. I couldn't believe the colours. Or how long she hung in the sky, swollen like this. I waited an hour before falling sleepy so I never got to watch her final exit. I wish I had.
I am so grateful to be here. So grateful.
