My Second Ayahuasca Experience
It has been several years since I've visited Ma Ayahuasca, and this story was written back then, but not published until now. Interesting; I think it contains wisdom. Notably, "Humans don't exactly 'need' drugs like ayahuasca, but when we expose ourselves to the other drugs in our food and media, we become conditioned to the point where we may indeed need another drug to quickly break the conditioning..."
Nowadays, I say things like breathwork can help too.
...said the literary agent. Since committing myself to releasing a wanderlust guide about a trip through 24 countries on the cheap, I've been making my way though the system in place to maximize the experience. I went to the Writers' League of Texas conference last month and spoke with some agents with an intention to use a traditional publisher. Until book stores and traditional distribution are obsolete, there's something to be said about the format. Maybe it's like the record album, but I still love holding a former tree and reading from it.
So I'm focusing on this new entity called "Spin the World Around." It is the name of the memoir, but it's also a way of living.

All esoterics aside, I took some really cool pictures along the way, and I thought that sharing them would be a nice platform to illustrate the manifestation. My plan is to post a single high-res photograph each day until the book is released. With so many photos, I should have a platform by then. Here are the social network icons, without the names... Dig it!
Ok, well, so here's what i learned at the conference:
1. Twitter: you should be posting 4x per day and only 20% of your posts are about you.
2. Facebook: sadly, it helps to pay them to promote you
For the photo posting idea, here's a list (and my accounts for Spin the World Around):
1. Flikr lets you share high-resolution photos
2. Pintrest: photos pushed from Fliker whose locations can be added to a map
3. tumblr: similar to Flikr, but maybe not as high-res
4. instagram: has additional effects and a forced resolution, so postings are a separate work of art that can be re-posted to Flikr as such
5. imgr: for memes and funny pictures
6. Reddit to re-post photos
