Beautiful Trip

Not my first time dropping but this experience was the most beautiful, physically, journey yet. I started the night out hydrating myself and having a good meal (tripping zaps my appetite). It also causes some gi discomfort. So some medicine to combat that is taken an hour before I drop.

It takes about 40 minutes for the warn blanket feeling to wash over me, then about an hour in I start the fast climb to my plateau! 1:20 in and the beautiful trails begin with a strong audio reverb. I often get something I call time reverberations sounds repeat with a ratcheting effect. It's the best way to describe it.

2:00 hours in I'm peaking! I love to go out for walks with my dog, this night we go out before the sun sets. 5 minutes in my dog spots some birds playing in a puddle of water, cleaning themselves. As the bird fly to and from the water it's like stop motion film I can see what looks like a trail of birds following each other like a Chinese yoyo. This last a good half hour or so (hard to keep time the trip is quite intense) I always have my camera on me. I always get some photos that the day after bring my back to that moment. Every step I take feels like my feet are sinking into the blacktop.

I returned from my walk realizing I'm supposed to do a photo shoot of a local band. How did I forget, well I put my gear together, called a cab and headed into town. I know the band pretty good so when I walk in and drop my gear one of them comes up to me to go over what they want to do (this is not a paid job). He says 'I see you got started early'. Now I have dropped 30-40 times and never has my wife of friends had a clue! But I was tripping way hard. I set up hit the bar to see if a beer could calm the trip down a bit. It took 3 beers but it took the edge off. The band started (grateful dead cover band). Now I have gone out to live music tripping but never like this! I could almost touch the music, it was almost spiritual. I got lots of great photos that night.

One of my favorite things to do when I'm tripping in public is people watching

, and I was not disappointed this night! The place was packed full of people from all walks, I found myself focusing on one person and could understand how they were feeling. A bunch of hipsters with two very attractive ladies were acting like total a holes. It's like they didn't care about them. I could see the disgust on their faces! They just looked so unhappy.

6 hours in and I'm full blown speeding! I know it's going to be a long night. I love the energy it gives me feels like my body is pulsing. I sit outside the bar watch cars driving by, the long trails of headlights keep me busy, I decided to walk home and forgo the cab so I can enjoy the summer air. It felt like hours to make it home but I know it only takes 40 minutes to make the trip home.

It's 8 hours later and I'm still tripping nicely. I put on my headphones and sit on the patio with a drink, taking pictures of the moon and any backyard visitors (bugs). I have to get some sleep it's getting late. For me anyway Valium is the best way to drop out and get some sleep I take 6mg and in half an hour I'm slowly drifting off to some awesome dreams I know are waiting!

The day after is such a good feeling, the afterglow lasts well into the day. I look through the photos and for a moment feel like I'm back in time to the night before.
