the emulation
(this is a recreation a photo my father took of my mother in the same yard. click on your fav part and be transported to a magical day filled with globetrotting, house hunting & a birthday celebration.)

it's one hundred percent certifiable, my body has traveled around the world. on 24 may 1978, i was born at loma linda university hospital. on 12 november 2007, i drove around the hospital to seal the deal and officially proclaim my body around the world.

as a descendent of new world explorers, i am now the first modern hidalgo (of moca linage) to circumnavigate the globe. do i feel different?

yes and no. it's kinda like turning a monumental age. you've always dreamt of reaching the milestone, but wondered if you'd make it. nonetheless, you persevered over every oppositional thought and roadblock. i could wax on about how i feel like a billion sea shells or how there's a new spring in my step...

i know tomorrow will be another day - unscripted, unedited and unfiltered. many things can and will go wrong.

i know hundreds of people have placed me on their shoulders and carried my dream across the globe.

i know that i must work twice as hard to show my appreciation for the beauty of all things.

i now know nothing will stopping me from working the world's lemons into lemonade.

i know i am not alone.
