what in the blazes!

Its been strange days since I last posted. I almost forgot about this place. My old world seems to be crumbling apart. Things I thought I knew are not as they seem and things I didn't know are turning out to be crazier than I thought. I hope that if anyone reads this that they are doing alright and I hope one day I will see you again. I am going to try to post on here more often now. much love

What can we find???

Well Things are going pretty wild here in lovely New Hampshire...I have been walking around town so much that I have done something that I have never done in my entire life...I wore a hole in the bottom of my converse. I guess that's what happens when they end up being owned by a company who's logo is a whip in mid swing.

Well I did find that some smart people do live around here...this is one of the best billboards I have ever seen and its right down town!!! If you can't see it very well let me know I will send you the full size one...I laughed out loud on the street and looked like a mad man.

Here is a picture of the Greek Orthodox church here in Manchester...not nearly as impressive in this picture as it is in real life...a very unique building...and it is graced with the name of not only my favorite kind of whiskey that I like to share with Larry but one of my good friends.

If you can't read it and you don't know me it does say St. George. Miss you guys (Larry and George)

One of the first things I did when I got to Manchester was to go to the library and find out what I needed to do to get a card...on my way back I saw this statue and the side I was walking up to was a someone caped and hooded...that picture didn't come out but these did.

The crazy thing was this was homeless/student park central and the fertilizer just to the right of the next picture was on fire and I had to put it out because nobody else seemed to care or want to do anything...I saw FLAMES...and kids were playing right by it...odd.

Hello all...there is nothing new in New Hampshire

So I made it to New Hampshire and it's been pretty busy since I have been here. The first thing I got to do was meet one of my new roommates...who is surprisingly young...youngest roommate I have ever had actually.
Then from there I got to see one of my favorite friends ever...the kitty banes. Had to get things organized and see where everything goes and is in my new place. I am living with my good friend/sister Margaret in her new house that she is actually still moving into...its really cute.

The real funny thing is that the whole basement is painted in New England Patriots colors and there is a urinal in the bathroom...don't think that's going to find much use. The good thing is I was so tired from my flight that I fell asleep as soon as I got here at midnight and woke up at seven so I am already used to the time change. The next day Margaret and I got up early because Margaret had a savate match (french kick boxing). I would show you a picture of Margaret but due to the nasty french outfit you have to wear in this sport (almost full body spandex) Margaret would kill me if I put that picture on the Internet but I do have some of the guys fighting for you.

Then that night we drove about an hour away and watched two of Margarets gym members in some boxing matches, one at heavy weight and the other super heavy weight...sadly they didn't win :(

Today I went and took a walk around town to get an idea of where stuff is and how long its going to take me to walk around everywhere. I found that it takes me about an hour for me to walk from home to the university which is downtown. I also witnessed some really interesting sites. These first two pictures are for you if anyone tells you Manchester is as nice as SB.


Nice town...caring...see the charity? How about the crack pipe?
I found what appears to be the lamest park...EVER. I see how the rough streets of Manchester look like the war in Iraq...and trust me I know this is in bad taste but the picture turned out so well I had to. and I guess the city of Manchester decided to save money by laying off the public works people in town and removing all the trash cans so they didn't have to have someone empty them.But at least I have this great way to remind me where the people I love are...I hope life is great in Cali cuz its looking grim here...not the New England I was hoping for.

Don't worry...I still love you...unless the test is positive

This is for anyone who might read this...not likely. In a day and a half I leave Santa Barbara and I want you all to know that for the few people that I actually knew here you have all been awesome, supportive, caring, and best of all hilarious. I have grown SO much since I have been here in both good ways and bad. I can't say that I am overly excited about my move but I am not afraid...in fact that's how I got to Santa Barbara. In reality the one thing that bothers me the most is the friends...my very dear friends that I am going to miss the very most. These people are my hero's...and I will always look toward them.
In the short number of years I have lived here I have seen some pretty cool stuff with some pretty awesome people. Two trips to cochella, ALL my years with the AWESOME Santa Barbara arts community, great hikes to find tangerine falls with many great people, arguing the legitimacy of walking on the freeway...with the cops, many crazy bus rides, that damn stone brewing festival that I am going to miss almost as much as I will miss Larry & Debbie XOXO, seeing a trap door open up right in the end of a fantastic wine tasting event. The talent of all my friends who are writers, poets, movie makers, teachers, uh...film and lecture managers...heh, artists, chefs, dreamers and doers, musicians and winemakers, life healers (Mel b knows what I mean), revolutionary's, and shamans.
Well I could go on forever but I am drunk so I am going to go pass out and throw-up on myself (just kidding). Just know that I am going to miss you all but I bet I will see you again.

much love
