So I tried to ask god, ended up asking Google read a Wikipedia article about President Jackson and the Indian Removal. Some Indians killed 400 settlers in a massacre, they had their issues too. Jackson drew new lines on the map and said: “all ya’ll gotta move.” Forced relocation of the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, and Creek to some really nice land near Missouri “You’ll feel at home in a week." A President set a precedent: “The Trail of Tears” still how our justice system deals with minorities after after all these years. we killed and stole for our freedom: to own the whole span of it from sea to shining sea and now the whole damn planet. no wonder we still worship him big face on the twenty giving thanks from the land of plenty, it's -esc
my head is the start of a day.
I crack in the morning, the sun leaks out quick,
the pages are creamy and slick.
Oh, how about it?
Why not go ahead?
Why not re-read what we’ve not read?
My head is an egg - full of sprockets and wires,
my hat is a halo of fire.
I rise to the sunshine, the glow overhead
burns to figure out life before bed
Oh, how about it?
Why not go ahead?
Why not live with a wink ’til we’re dead?
My head is an egg - full of bubbles and fuzz,
my jaw the conductor of buzz.
I plunge in the evening, the wind whipping past
like the whirr of a line when it’s cast.
It’s 7am in SOMA, California. The sun fills morning fog with a glowing intensity that will soon burn into another sun drenched day of drought in the Bay. The streets are quiet. Most of tech workers are still in child’s pose - but there’s activity. In every enclave and office doorway down Bryant street, people are folding up cardboard boxes, stuffing sleeping bags into tattered back packs, and migrating to day spots. They leave behind strange things: dusty neon clothes, defunct electronics, countless pieces of scribbled-on paper, beer cans, piles of poop covered in 2 year old copies of “People” magazine.
As the suspended water molecules fully evaporate, human resources of innumerable VC backed tech companies begin to descend on the streets. They pour out of the Montgomery and Powell BART stations with their earbuds in and their iPhones outstretched. They clamber out of the CalTrain crush at 4th and Townsend, deploy their folding bicycles, unfold razor scooters, and speed off down the streets.
This west coast dream delivered these data driven urbanites from some seasonal northern tundra; gave them a golden ticket out of a bureacratic cubicle world. They bit the bullet on having to give their left ovary for rent, and moved to the land of sunshine and open offices.
Yet there’s trouble in Paradise.
A man in a navy blue hoodie and Asics sneakers plays hopscotch on the final leg of his multimodal journey into a start up office on Bryant St. He’s watching a Snap Story (yeah, his own Snap Story), swiping down to notices that the ground below his phone is covered in strange things. A torn foam pad. A barbie doll. His eye is caught by a more appealing image, a gleaming flat bellied celebrity on the cover of People. Glance number two reveals the brown smear across the gloss. Frantically averting his gaze, he scuttles up to his standing desk in the open office to wait for a catered lunch.
The fact that there are so many living in abject poverty in the midst of a society overflowing with riches is unsettling. While trying to find a solution opens up a divisive conversation with no easy answers and even fewer motivated volunteers, there are start-ups looking to help. Copia was founded in Berkeley and brings a clean UX to the problem of donating some of the thousands of pounds of food waste created by over-catered tech companies to community kitchens and pantries around the Bay Area. Passing on leftovers instead of dumping them into the garbage is a good gesture - but it's not a solution.
Homelessness in San Francisco doesn't have an easy fix. It’s a symptom of a society unready to stare headlong into it’s own deep seated inequities. And sauntering down South Park in SOMA, where there are over 1000 homeless people packed into every square mile, it’s a sign of an industry more concerned with return on investment than returning something to the forgotten community asleep on the stoop.
It’s 11pm in SOMA, California. Beneath the 101 overpass, on the deep embankments either side of 13th street, a secret city is humming. Real estate is at a premium here as in the rest of the city, tarp covered tents packed in wall to wall on one of the few blocks where SFPD turns a blind eye. Overloaded shopping carts wobble under the weight strange things. Dozens of bike frames, wheels, seats. A large man in tattered leather straddles a tiny BMX, the red hair of his halloween clown mask flying behind him in the wind as he traverses dystopia.
Do something from your todo list.

you have nothing you have no one you are nothing you are no one you are a meditative breath a blade of grass a drop of wind you have nobody you have nothing you are nobody you are nothing you are a lull a staring off an unfinished list you have you have you are you are you are the stillness waiting to be song
Flying in dreams is a very rewarding experience. Short of hang gliding or sky diving it's the only way for a normal person to have the experience of taking flight. It can be beautiful, relaxing, meditative, exhilarating - it can really feel like you are flying.
What I've also found is that it's often possible to realize that flight is possible in dreams short of actual lucid dreaming. In other words you may not realize you are dreaming but still realize that you can fly and enact it. That said it's helpful to train your flight abilities in lucid dreams because you can put that extra intentionality into your flight technique that then informs future lucid and non-lucid flight.
So let's say you are dreaming and you want to fly. One thing that can quickly overwhelm the experience is the question of where you are flying to. You can focus on a particular point in your vision and imagine pulling yourself towards it. You may move in the direction but the feeling of flight is not necessarily there, especially if you keep thinking about what you are going to see over the horizon or around the bend.
Another approach would be to focus on pushing yourself along through the air. Putting the intentionality into the motion vs the destination. This "push" approach can sometimes work but often doesn't allow the mental space to figure out direction and feels belabored.
Satisfying flight is more about the sensation of flowing through the air and a sense of controlling the direction in which you travel. What I've found is the best path to this experience is to use an object similar to the sail on a boat. Imagine if you were as light as a feather and holding a large flat object to catch the wind. You'd be flying around and able to control your direction by turning and positioning your "sail".
In summary my experiences with flying indicate that a superman approach (pushing yourself forward through the air by force of will) and a spiderman approach (pulling yourself towards a fixed point in the distance) are less effective than more of a Mary Poppins approach (grab the nearest umbrella and let yourself be pulled along by the wind).
