tahoe and to the west we go

i cannot express enough, the love and spirituality that was bestowed upon us in tahoe. it was truly a benchmark on the journey, and my search for truth, spirituality and the good souls that are pressing our generations, nay, guiding our generations into a new enlightenment and being. i will never forget leova and eric. how can i ever repay you?

we showed up in their slush-covered drive, in the dolphin, as weary travelers from utah. they welcomed us into their space, a cozy, one bedroom with living area and kitchen, where we lived in communion with them for the past three nights. it was surprising to me to be welcomed in with so much embrace. if i were to theorize, i would say my surprise comes from my natural tendency to always be on my guard from people's hidden agendas, having been utterly shat on by the likes of both low-life strangers and trusted individuals. i believe it was the region i was raised in, where seemingly everyone has something to say or judge. to have those walls crash down and be taken in by these two truthful spirits was exactly what i have been talking about in my writings.

for now though, it is time for us to leave this place called tahoe. our friend daniel is leaving to travel through the mountains west to placerville. instead of hiking the 50 miles through the mountains he offered us a ride. awesome! west coast here we go! at least closer to the coast that is. good people being good people. that's who we're here to find. i don't know where out journey will take us next but our souls will guide us. heading into the wild may bring more space between new posts. we'll see. to the west, the best, the golden end of the u.s. where the journey is only beginning on my search for truth. -alexander

we arrived on a cloudy day where a gorgeous fog settled over the lake
