I love having two thanksgivings.
#expatlife #thanksgiving

‘Cause I am the Rain King- Counting Crows. Hit a couple unusual rainy days in la cuidad. People from all walks of life didn’t seem to mind too much, especially those hanging under the large Mayan fountain in the last photograph. Such a cool/chill city. #herecomestherain #mexicocity #calle #countingcrows 🌧🛶🏙💙

Found at our French library and immediately hit with all the #memories: 😻 The first musical I ever saw. My grandmother took me when I was 6 or 7. 😻 My dad's office for a while was 1 block from the theater. 😻 We'd go there to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving's Day parade make its way down Broadway. 😻 My best friend in 6th grade learning how to play the songs on the piano. We'd sit on her piano bench and sing along.

So, naturally, I borrowed it. My kids looked at me like i was a crazy cats lady.

Leaving the metro in Condesa, I saw a metal walker laying sideways on some stairs, last night. A few stairs above was a man lying on the ground. I rushed over, picked up the walker, brought it to the man, asking if he needed help. He pushed the walker away and muttered something I couldn't really understand. I tried to move the walker to a higher step- thinking that maybe this would be of better assistance to him. Laying on the ground, legs twisted, the older man pushed the walker away and let it fall down the stairs. I looked across the stairwell facing opposite of us and saw a middle-aged middle class male and female couple looking as dumb-founded as me. The male on-looker told me, in Spanish, that they had been trying to help him as well; but the man also refused any assistance.
There was nothing more to do, but let him languish in his squalor. He was railing against the thing that is his support, and I don't blame him one bit. He has every right to be pissed and mad at the world and god. Haven't we all refused the help of a tender hand? I tend to rebuke the help of those with forceful hands and words. Am I doing that now in my own way, by leaving everything and everyone I know behind, for now?
I have 5 days left booked, and I am not quite sure where my next step is. Still in Mexico, but for how long will I live in impermanence? Until my money runs out, until I finally decide somewhere to settle down these restless bones and heart? Until my first book gets published? The answer will come. I will know in the moment when it's right to make a choice. I can feel it's getting closer.

There are miracles and lessons happening every day around us. I have not had the same experience as the man I met on subway stairs, but I understand the forlornness, the sometimes apparent cruelty and injustice of the world. Still, I have seen so much beauty to know that the uncertain times are the falsities.

New post! “I’ll Only Know In the Moment” part 1- (link in bio) 13th day in CDMX. I did not feel so brave today, but I can pinpoint its origins. It feels like lifetimes have passed since I left TX, in August. The countless lives, identities we have lived before today, yet this moment is all we have. We can't ever be sure what the next one will or will not bring us.
I went to reheat leftovers & found my food was stolen from the hostel/hotel kitchen. I've never stayed in a place that functions quite like this one. But there is an unwritten code amongst travelers and it was broken.

I scrawled a letter to the thief, telling them that if they were poor & hungry- it was wrong & hoped that they were nourished and enjoyed it. But if the person who nicked my food was just lazy or uncaring- I told them to “go fuck themselves.” I later left a postcard- apologizing for that tone along w/ a smattering of pesos if someone needed them.
I returned & two notes in Spanish had been written next to mine- rebuking the robber. The postcard & pesos still left on the counter. A shred of hope in humanity restored.

I wasn’t as upset about stolen food, it felt like a betrayal to my quest or whatever this half-planned and half-flying by the seat of my pants thing I’m doing. Perhaps that's how life is supposed to be. We live on precarious edges each moment. We take waking up, sex, FOOD, & limbs for granted. We withhold love from those we love or are "supposed" to love the most. We cannot give what we don’t have. And “I do not want what I haven’t got.” That's a lie, & the name of Sinead O'Connor's debut album. 😆 Still, there is some truth in that sentiment.

Stranger in a strange land. The Man Who Fell to Earth. Will I ever find a place that is home- which can contain these multitudes? “Have you forgotten? You are multitudes. You can never be contained in words or bodies, alone.”

Spending the day in Casa with friends. The day started with very heavy rain, but we didn't give up and it turned out beautiful.
It was only a quick trip to Casablanca, lunch at Rick's cafe, then Mosque. We didn't go to the medina or anywhere else. I'll def be back.
