Eat at a local restaurant tonight. Get the cream sauce. Have a cold pint at 4 o’clock in a mostly empty bar. Go somewhere you’ve never been. Listen to someone you think may have nothing in common with you. Order the steak rare. Eat an oyster. Have a negroni. Have two. Be open to a world where you may not understand or agree with the person next to you, but have a drink with them anyways. Eat slowly. Tip your server. Check in on your friends. Check in on yourself. Enjoy the ride.

Anthony Bourdain

Modern Homeless

I orbit earth like the moon

I come out at night

And then fade away

Only shadow remains

I surface back from somewhere

I think I don’t belong anywhere

Maybe I don’t need to

‘riders on the storm’ plays on the radio

I don’t wanna go to sleep

at nights strange dreams I see

wonder if they’re messing with my head

in my heart I know where my home is

The path I’m on ain’t taking me there

from place to place I go

just visiting them

not to stay

‘can’t find my way home’ plays on the radio

there are many great places I know

most are charming to us

for me there is one

it takes me to the reality

not away from it

so I think we know

the direction we should go

believe you’d like it too

I’ve been thinking

happy I may not seem (to be)

but the thing is

I can enjoy my life anywhere

what’s a place anyway

it’s combination of things

the ones we relish

‘Where Do You Think You’re Going?’ plays on the radio

Pekka Niikkonen

If I was on one of those TV shows, quiz. Name the members of Pink Floyd?

Pekka Niikkonen

No one is you and that is your biggest power.
