Camel Rider

There is something you all need to know about me. 

I am obsessed with camels. As in completely and utterly in love with them. Its quite sad really, especially since I live in the frozen tundra that is Canada. BUT! (completely unrelated to this book) I rode a camel last summer in Israel and it was amazing. 

(NBD. And I just really wanted to share that picture.)

ANYWAY. With my camel infatuation in mind, my mother found this book for me. At the dollar store. No, I’m not joking. 

Being the person that I am, I can’t help it. I have to give this book a try. I don’t care that it was written for 10-12 year old boys. Camels. 

I must tell you, the prose and style is already driving me crazy and I’m only 1/3 of the way through the book. Thankfully, the author chose to base the story in a fictional country/region but as an individual with an MA in Religion…I’m having a hard time reading certain aspects of the book.  

At least there are camels. 

Our friends in the desert are always ready to meet and greet riders! 😊 #camel #christini #allwheeldrive #2x2 #yamaha #yz250 #300 #450 #2stroke #exotic #enduro #motocross #offroad #motorcycle #dirtbiketours #tours #bikelife #motolife #dunes #desert #deserttours #dubaidesert #dubaimotocross #dubai #mydubai #dubailife #abudhabi #inabudhabi #uae #motoventure (at Motoventure)

I remember making this image while I was in Egypt. The temperature that day was a whopping 104 degrees. I was simultaneously being voraciously attacked by sand flies. What drew me to this, was the fact that the gentleman was using his camel as an umbrella, hiding from the powerful sun, in the desert. The things we endure to take an image. This was taken right outside of the Step-Pyramid of King Djoser. #brooklyn #portrait #editorial #fineart #photographer #newyork #nyc #cairo #egypt #travel #steppyramidofdjoser #dromedary #camel #rider #heat #sun #sandfly #bite #nikon #memories

Peevish water

Go grab a bottle of coffee, touch it, put it on ur neck, feel it. Maybe mocha, not suggesting beer, would be nice though but in order to survive, lets keep it simple tonight. Coffee, becuz it likes being alone as much as i do right now, anyway i want u to be with me tonight.

Yeah.

Not like that shut up.

U know wishes, the sparkling unreality. I wish everything was as pure and sincere as the first 50 seconds of Camel’s The White Rider, seriously. The honest nectar of the music puts you through the fantasy world broken in time living in seconds. And now i will get broken into pieces like a teapot fallen on the ground. Wonder if the pieces bring back together? We ll see. When i was little i didnt used to think deep on things this much, dont know what happened maybe i lost some pieces to stop overthinking. Maybe.

If u are coming, get a coat, it is a bit chilly outside, we are goin for a walk. Dont forget ur keys! Down from the stairs, open the gate, it makes a disturbing noise but gladly neighbours are not badasses. 

Dont know where you are living and not entirely willing to know but what the best side of living in a small summer town is that u can go talk to sea any fucking time you want. And did you know it is free? Im a highly talkative person everybody knows that but there has been more times sea talked to me than i tried to explain things to her. I call sea as “her” becuz i dont know man, she is wild, free and beautiful at the same time and even there is a possibility that she can drown you, u always feel the need to see her, to swim in her u know. Plus it is all blue. Blue is love. And love is blind. 

Walking down to beach, but agh sit down on the road, have to rest a bit. Come near, dont worry, there are no cars at that time of night. Sit and roll on ur back. Have u ever tried lying down on road before? It has such an odd feeling haha u sould try. 

See? the sparkles. The stars. I always choose a star to be mine but the night after that i cant even find it on the sky, so i stopped. Every big sparkle is mine. No what!!? haha no i cant share them with u.

The theory is; love is the only thing that is literally free from everything. The gravity and time.. If so, even if im dead, my love for Federer will be there always, like echoing u know. Like vibrating, the energy is passing to another broken time again and again, then somehow Federer will always live . And everybody i love! damn i just discovered the immortality. Oh wish i could love myself more than every fucking value of mine. Maybe others love me, who knows. U better do lazy!

Enough for this rest, get up and drink ur coffee. Not much left. Oh that road on the right, turn. I said turn right!! Walk straight yes, there used to be a man selling home-made ice cream at that corner, now it is gone, like everybody else. Turn left from that corner and u can run down the road now if u dare. It is all the sea down the line. We are walking, it is quiet and dark and foggy a bit. As we getting closer, can u hear it? The waves splashing against each other and fallin on the sand aaaaagh, this is happiness. 

Anywhere u go, the sound of the sea is like a brainwashing machine, clears ur head and thoughts, u know, nice thing to fall in love, never lets u down. Always listens u when u need it. 

The breeze, the blow going through my hair and neck, an itchy peace. I needed to come to the sea, becuz she loves me. I needed to feel that i was loved. She touches me, plays with my hair and she talks to me, calms me. And she does that for nothing but becuz im just like her. Im the kid of the water, like a drop water corrodes the rock in years, i may be cute and look harmless but, yeah.

I was a broken teapot when i started writing at home. I got broken again and again as i opened the thoughts of mine and now ive came to the sea, the pieces teapot got back together. The time is bended, but it hasnt. It is hard to see when u are looking at the big picture but life flows into the details. 

Thanks for the walk dear. And if u wonder why I mentioned Camel at the beginning, when i listen their music, it is my ocean, the wildest water and the purest. But when im too mad to get it in my blood, when it is hard for me to see the bigger picture, i go to sea, dirtied water by the environmental waste but cleaning itself slowly. 

Like me like u, dirtied by everybody and everything around. To find urself in the mess u have to find where ur element is. Mine is water. Im a kid of the water. Pure but peevish, im tryin to clean my soul.
