Christopher Ives  CURRENTLY: Studying perspective.

(Part 3/3)
... we followed a dark road off the highway. I rolled down the windows and the cool high desert air came in followed by "...sliiiide to right! ...sliiiide to the left!" BUMP BUMP BUMP BUMP... the beat bounced into the car from across the street.
.
Tony's Pizza and Bar had a full-on high school dance DJ slinging all the hottest jams. Strobes and colored lights bedazzled the half-paved parking lot and the 6 people who stood watching the 'dance floor.' Exactly as I remembered it had looked in high school...
.
Now joined with Sarah and Dave, we followed their Tacoma off onto a dirt road... then a dirt trail... then onto a soft river bed.
.
I could feel the sand and pebbles displacing around my tires like soft snow. .
.
"I might get stuck," I said to Charla...
.
In a wide area the three vehicles backed onto a relatively flat space. Sarah and Dave arranged an air mattress in the back of their truck and the rest of us fashioned beds from our back seats, blankets, and sleeping bags.
.
With the windows down a cool breeze lulled us to sleep under a moon-less Milky Way sky. .
.
Tomorrow, just a few hours after sunrise, we'd watch our first 360° sunset as the Moon blocked the Sun in totality, and shot a shadow 50 miles-wide across North America at more than 1600mph.

... we hit the road and left @themilehighcity around 20:00 and aimed north on I-25.
.
No moon... it was dark... getting some extra sleep before the big show was a wise choice, but not something I was ever good at. Following our headlights through light traffic, we crossed into the windswept, high west of Wyoming.
.
The welcome center was our only stop for a quick stretch and to get our tourist pictures taken in front of the happy poster that adorned the entry. (See stories for said poster).
.
Pressing on, the temperature began to dip and the last light drained from the sky.
.
Charla curled herself under a blanket in the passenger seat and rested to Bon Iver, while Tulsi watched the cars go by outside the window. In the rear view I could see the passing headlights illuminate her face; her eyes half closing and opening, up and down... her battery nearly drained.
.
A text ricocheted through the car: DING DING....ding ding.... .
.
Sonia texts:
"@wise_willow_health says: We are going to guernsey. We decided to stay near guernsey reservoir. We are about 30 min away."

(Part 1/3)
Sunday afternoon Sonia mentioned that she and two friends were heading up to Wyoming.
.
"Where to?"
.
"I'm not sure... we don't have it planned yet."
.
"Perfect," I thought, "adventure time!"
.
I started packing my car for camping and went to the store for snacks.
.
With the car full, @tulsiyellowbear and I headed over to @leafhands for a pre-trip cocktail with @sonneriffic to talk about our unfolding plans.... Douglas, WY perhaps... a small town in the path of #totality.
.
.... continued in (2/3)

Sometimes, when you least expect it, you find yourself where you least expected.
.
And sometimes. Sometimes, you're where you expect to be and it's not as you expected.
.
Today I sat where I was and looked about. I said what I saw and remembered things I was reminded of.
.
I was pleased and disappointed. I wasn't modest, but I was before. And then I went and had pancakes.
.
Life is a story, but maybe we're not always supposed to tell it. Or at least keep some of it to roll over in our mind-mouth for a while to better get the taste.

I made this photo and wrote this story this afternoon. Let me know if you have feelings about it?
.
DIRECT, QUICK:
.
In the face of it,
I walk toward it.
.
Open eyes, chin up. I bow out of custom, but rose back up.
.
Faith in absurdity, I clench my teeth, scrunch my nose and clear my throat of the lump that doesn't. give. up.
.
Spine straight, loose gate, and velvet eyes. Deep breathe, mind checked - like in hockey - but I'll try.
.
Time and time and time and time again, cruising against the line. Discomfort bearing truth. in. time.
.
Here I stumble upon rarity. A moment! A m o m e n t where nothing vibrates into everything and life is illuminated in psychedelic swirls, moans and the white wash of highway traffic.
.
Fluttered breathe from my lungs.
I am Dazed and I walk with it.
.
Here I am. …if not waiting in potential, I say.
.
And with fists clenched in the electric high! I shoot my elbows down and then pummel the air - like it was life itself - with blows of intuition and spirit, jesting with the night, singing spontaneous melodies and shuffling my feet.
.
Thank you.
