The art of Dan, my host here in Detroit. Took him six hours. Was tripping on shrooms and acid. One tab and a pot of shroom tea.
"I thought it would be a cool thing to try out"
"I was straight up trippin’ dick when I created that."

My statement to myself today is: Stop focusing on what was, what could have been, and what should have been and instead focus on what is.
I struggle with this often, even on this journey. Well, mostly on this journey. I find myself wondering what photos could I have taken, if I met the right people, if I met enough people, did I see enough of the city/town, etc. I also find myself wondering if I had fallen in love prior to beginning this journey, would I have still gone on this journey. Then there is the, what if you I fall in love on this journey, then what? Am I doing this thing right? Is there a right way to do it?
Yeah, lots of questions and no answers to any of them, because there just isn’t. It’s not what is right in front of me, right now. I can’t do anything about any of it. All I can really do is focus on the right now and making it the best right now for right now and worrying about all the other stuff…Well, that’s not making the best of right now. It’s not really making the best of anytime. And, it only slows me down from making the best of right now. I feel as though I might be rambling, but it all makes sense to me in the best of ways. I just have to make the best of what I am in right now instead of trying to control what I have no control over with the past and the future. It’s done and it will happen if it is meant to happen. If it didn’t or doesn’t happen, then it wasn’t or isn’t meant to happen…So, why waste time on it when I could be focused on this moment at hand and making the best of it.
I also struggle on this journey. I want to plan so far ahead and have something steady and stable, but I’m not too sure that a journey like this should be steady or stable and should just be taken as it comes and made the best of.
Realistically, we are all on journeys that we have no control over. None whatsoever. We like to pretend we have control and that makes us feel happy and comfortable, but honestly there is no control and if there is, we don’t have it. In this exact moment anything can happen and on the flip side of that, isn’t it great that ANYTHING can happen at any moment. Doesn’t that make life worth living? Isn’t that exciting? You don’t have to answer, I will. It’s VERY EXCITING and It makes life worth LIVING!
Okay, that’s my rant. I’m in Detroit and I’m excited to be here. Gonna get out and explore a bit hopefully take some great photos, but if not, at least I had an experience of some sort and that’s what all of our journeys should be about- Experiences, both good and bad. Yes? Yes!
Have a good one!
