// EXPERIMENT: people_in_places - v.1 //
I’ve been known as “Nomad” within my close circle for years. I was an unruly, precocious kid who really didn’t stay still. I wasn’t fond of staying in one place, and to this day I have trouble just staying still (I do a damn good job of hiding it, for the most part) but the “wandering” part didn’t come until my adult life. During my doorman days I quit smoking (Aug 2012) and for the life of my I could not stay still. Between nicotine withdrawal and just the fact that I was me I would pace in my lobby after hours. Nonstop. Just to take the edge away. One of my coworkers, partially from annoyance, one night came up to me and said “you’re like a fucking wandering nomad. Just relax.”- and the ring of those two words always stuck because it resonated way too well with me. So it’s been a pseudonym for me ever since.
Those days were intense, but the simplicity of them is something that is missed. There was a humbleness back then that may be an anxiety thing, but I think there’s more to it. Our society focuses on luxury items without really seeing the meaning behind it. Yet our spiritual and soulful needs are much closer than we think. Again this goes back to the nomadic concept. Roam until you find what you need, then roam again. Never taking more than you can carry, you have what you need. I like that. And like many nomads, a return to that humility is in order. It’s raining here in the city, but I hope everyone has a good night. This week will be amazing. - sincerely from the Wandering Nomad, the pseudonym of a real person named Randal Rivera.

It's amazing how quickly your mood can change, how deep your heart can sink and how much one person can affect you. // #pursuitofportraits

Use to carry around a little faith
Trusted others, ya I use to carry around a little faith
Believe the world, there's good in all they say
Through the the valley of death, be brave
All the betrayal makin temptations hard to shoo away
Stuck in anxiety checkin every movement
Scared of movin cause I dont wanna get lost in the moment
Always knew what you say, damn I use to carry around a little faith
I made a promise to myself that I’ll post more of me instead of my work so here’s a little update. Quick story I packed light so I was wearing these shorts throughout the trip, and had a whistle on my neck to look cool. Definitely not the best swimmer and had to tell a few people I wasn’t a lifeguard.
