WALKING THE EARTH

In Dallas phisically ... but ... of course ... with my mind somewhere else ... I am planning my vacations for the last few months of 2006 ... backpacking vacations ... and of course I am day dreaming ... so ... the latest plan is this .... ITALY for 5 days, BARCELONA for 5 days, perhaps GERMANY, and CHILE for 3-4 weeks with a short trip to the EASTERN ISLAND ... and while I am dreaming ... this picture of me popped in my mind ... it is a picture taken last year in the ANTROPOLOGICAL MUSEUM of MEXICO CITY ...... and this is the exactly the way I see myself ... not very different from my ancestors ... who were moving free to move on this planet ... without borders ... without VISA ... without fences ... without walls ... I really see myself just like a guest on this planet ... and my ideal life is ... roaming around ... discovering new places ... enjoying my short life doing what I like the most ... meeting new people ... get into adventures ... hugging my friends ... telling them how much I love them ... making new friends ... yelling to the people I dislike ... trying to fight dishonest people ... telling exactly what I am thinking ... even if I have in front of me a CEO or a PRESIDENT ... making fun of myself and the people around me ... telling jokes that not everybody understand ... in one simple sentence ... WALK THE EARTH ... and of course my perfect buddy is JULES ... from PULP FICTION ... here one of the best dialogues ... VINCENT: So if you're quitting the life, what'll you do? JULES: That's what I've been sitting here contemplating. First, I'm gonna deliver this case to Marsellus. Then, basically, I'm gonna walk the earth. VINCENT: What do you mean, walk the earth? JULES: You know, like Caine in "KUNG FU". Just walk from town to town, meet people, get in adventures. VINCENT: How long do you intend to walk the earth? JULES: Until God puts me where he want me to VINCENT: What if he never does? JULES: If it takes forever, I'll wait forever. VINCENT: So you decided to be a bum? JULES: I'll just be Jules, Vincent – no more, no less. VINCENT: No Jules, you're gonna be like those pieces of shit out there who beg for change. They walk around like a bunch of fuckin' zombies, they sleep in garbage bins, they eat what I throw away, and dogs piss on 'em. They go a word for 'em, they're called bums. And without a job, residence, or legal tender, that's what you're gonna be – a fuckin' bum! JULES Look my friend, this is just where me and you differ. VINCENT: What happened was peculiar – no doubt about it – but it wasn't watet into wine. JULES: All shapes and sizes, Vince. VINCENT: Stop fuckin' talkin' like that! JULES: If you find my answers frightening, Vincent, you should cease askin' scary questions. VINCENT: I gotta take a shit. To be continued.
