Finding my way to Agloe

I was wandering my way to the coast the day before yesterday, killing time before an appointment in Margate, New Jersey. Somewhere in Delaware, I took a wrong turn. I wasn't in a big rush, and showed a big interesting line of caches up ahead, so I went with it. Do you ever run into... Continue Reading →



I don’t know what comes next. I really don’t. I’m not finding the unity that I sought, though I’m meeting and chatting with some amazing people. A ton of amazing people, but let’s focus on the pre-arranged interviews. Each of these folks will get their time in the sun when I edit the awesome audio... Continue Reading →


I sit writing this in a pavilion on a pond, the mist wafting up from the water as the sun threatens to rise behind me. Peacocks are calling, bullfrogs are letting me know they're around, mosquitos are.... I sit writing this from my comfortable room overlooking said pavilion. I spent last night with the ISKCON...

Every time I think I outrun it, my road curves left and there it is waiting for me. Today, faced with a relatively... Continue Reading →


I have three separate blog posts at some level of composition, and I can't finish any of them. My head is too muddied, my nerves too jangling.

Fountain Shrine

I've been burning through the western states, a little concerned that I still had all my shrines in the back of the car... Surely one of them belonged out here? Why wasn't anything calling to me? Yesterday morning, that all changed. Early in the morning, I was taking the interstate into a little town I... Continue Reading →
