The People of Paper, written by Salvador Plascencia

She was made after the time of ribs and mud. By papal decree there were to be no more people born of the ground or from the marrow of the bones. All would be created from the propulsions and mounts performed underneath bedsheets-rare exceptions granted for immaculate conceptions.

Life choices will take you towards many roads, people, and experiences. I can’t believe I moved up to San Francisco 2.5 years ago. I must say, this city has taught me to layer properly, that love and friendships can be found in the most unexpected places, and that the only thing that’s constant is, well, nothing. San Francisco has taught me to adapt swiftly to any given moment and situation. Being here has also allowed for me to become more of a woman, by testing my boundaries and my morals, I have learned so much about myself and yet, 2.5 years later, I feel so much more complete as a person than I did when I first moved here.  

If you listen closely and sit back to admire the word, you’ll notice a rhythm of how people move, how people talk, how the world operates, you’ll start to anticipate peoples actions in your personal life as well as life outside, you will be able to visibly distinguish right from wrong, good from bad, and you’ll even see the grey and neutral spaces in between. When that happens, you will have unlocked the rhythm to the universe.
