adventure in spirit, fantasy
and fiction set in a mostly-idyllic Hawaiian hippie

My fate I had placed in the
hands of the Gods. How
scary and yet how timorously but magically liberating! For the first
time in my young adult life, I would be getting to know what it was
really like to live in the present moment, in the here and now, from
day to day, from meal to meal, always wondering in awe and in anxious
anticipation – what would happen next?

Dylan's songs, “Like a Rolling Stone," when he sings, “When you got
nothin', you got nothin' to lose, you're invisible now you got no
secrets to conceal. How does it feel?" And that about summed up my
untenable, homeless predicament.
But make no mistake, I had chosen homelessness and
a life of material poverty because I could. I was well aware of the
fact that most of the world's population had no such choice; they were
born into poverty and were forced to make do with the cards that life
had dealt them.
