Ute Territories – October 12, 2013

I like looking at my blog statistics: where the day’s traffic came from, what got views… I find it entertaining.  Lately I keep seeing these searches for my apparent or alleged location.   Seriously?

And i though *I* was bored sometimes...

And i though *I* was bored sometimes…

Family and friends know where I am, we email, phone, facebook or Skype anyhow, so it’s a little odd.  Who could possibly be thát bored as to wonder where I am?  The government spy agency NSA knows my exact location every time I log onto the internet, am in an area with phone reception (if my phone’s battery is not dead), or whenever I pay electronically or use an ATM.  For instance, technically, “they know” where I saw the movie ‘Gravity’ last night, where I ate and where the wifi network is through which I’m online right now.  It’s all recorded.

I wonder about it sometimes myself, though.  “Damn, what is this place?  Where am I?  Did I take a wrong exit?”  So I’m looking at some very recent communications and can relay that my most recent universe has at least four entrances:  You can enter this altered high altitude universe over either of 3 mountain passes, or follow the Rio grande upstream to its headwaters.

And while you’re studying the map, let me share some photos from ground level with you:

I think it’s odd someone may want to know where I am.  Or are they wondering where I live?  See, in my case, there’s actually no difference.  I live where I am.  Home has become a rather elusive concept that I have a harder and harder time wrapping my mind around; só much actually, that it is seriously interfering with my ability “to integrate in conventional society”.  That’s a goal I keep aiming for every so often, particularly when I want to make money and feel like belonging somewhere in a geographically stable community.  I’ve settled on being ‘from here’.  Right here right now.

A little further north along Route 17, north of Alamosa, zoomed in to the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range:

So beautiful there…  Hope the park reopens soon…

Earth is my home location.   I’m almost always in the Northern Hemisphere, particularly on the North American continent.  Anything east of Denver (Colorado), I psychologically lump together as “the east coast” and generally do not venture into.   Red dots I’ve stayed at for at least a few days, sometimes weeks or months; if it comes with a black square, I lived there long enough to receive mail; past two years:

Places I've stayed (temporary "home") and locations that had the potential to grow into a "home location", mail delivery and all...  Period September 2011-October 2013.

I don’t know if that helps…  For a slightly grander perspective, I simply live as part of this beautiful planet Earth:

And of course, you could have a peek at my paintings, or contact me if it were to matter… .  (I doubt the latter, but one never knows…)

Feel free to comment, though…
