Vanishing via Empiricality

Umm, how do I start this? Well I have been avoiding communication with everyone this week. And if you are one of them I am very sorry. Sometimes, I feel a need to disappear for awhile and selfishly reflect on my life (where it currently resides & where it will go). What lured me out of my shell was a short chat with an Old Mexican Fisherman at the Santa Monica Pier. I didn't speak much Spanish & he didn't speak English, but we shared a few exciting moments (like when we spotted 2 stingrays cruising below us and the time he caught a baby tiger shark). I realized how exciting life can be if I take notice of these tiny miracles that are occurring everywhere.
So now that I am ready to return back to civilization, here are a few silent observations of my surroundings this week. The first one is about line dwellers of the iPhone craze, and the second is a morning sketch of the local swimming dig. Thanks for dropping in!
