all of my ancestors

as Spain riots, China continues to be a big bully, the fiasco of Philippine politics continues and election hysteria escalates in the US of A

I reflect on all the bloodlines and heritage that have contributed to my present situation and perspective 

what does any of it have to do with me?  I am more affected with the deaths of immediate friends or their relatives lost 

having to deal with my health and well being daily - where does any of this fit in the proverbial grand scheme of things? 

why should I concern myself with countries and their issues - when I'm working so hard to rid myself of mine personally? 

yet they all pull and tug on my heart strings - far away or up close, personal or not

motion, movement, momentum

as I move into yet another place and unpack to create a new home from scratch I am made present to internal and external forces at play

I like simplifying, getting back to basics and being frugal about it - it's a creative process grounded in practical and applicable reality - what works and what does not 

it's exhilirating to find a new place, case out the new neighborhood, work out the logistics of the move, decide what should go and what to keep 

the change is exciting and expanding
