Not everything but certainly more than I realize sometimes. I don't think the moon rising or the howler monkeys howling is a hustle. But when humans get involved, yeah, pretty much everything is.

Today's sign. A good sign for my mom's 75th birthday. Happy Birthday, Mom! 
The Vulture - Ajmaq - Cib - K'ib' - Owl Ajmaq means "vulture" in K'iche'. This is a slow, goodhearted sign. It is highly sensual. Forgiveness, pardon, karmic clean out and an easy going nature all describe this energy. Ajma...

Trying to acclimate to life in the US is pretty fun. Choosing the right Apple Juice, of course, is a key step. Damani is ahead of his parents like usual.

How pretty is that? Wow.
The full moon descends behind the Nossa Senhora da Penha Church in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on August 10, 2014. In this time of the year the orb is at the closest point to the earth.

    Messing around, going for walks in deep thought, buying lots of pads, colorful pens, and making 3M rich. Surfing the Internet for Bologna, trading stocks (so that I have some money cause it ain't coming from writing), procrastinating making that viral YouTube video, wasting people on FaceBook, Twitter, etc, and occasionally putting pen to page and turning page to book.

Fighting a desperate struggle against my own brain
I have been a florist, a guitarist, an electronic music producer, a university instructor, a student, a language learner, a bar owner, a father, and a writer. 

I have books that you can purchase at Amazon (and other retailers) by searching Experimental Poet and Novelist or some other keywords like Chiaia.  

Right now, while recovering from nearly five years of running a bar which culminated in being beaten by 10 guys and then arrested for assault (life isn't always fair, is it?), I'm finishing up a book about the bar. This one finally has the direct language I use in real life instead of this esoteric bullshit I had been writing (yes, I love writing about the Maya although few people care, lol)
