April 17

This is the way things are meant to be: cluttered, wild, free. Messy. There's an odd smell I can't place. Maybe that weird blooming thing that everyone in this state knows, but i can't remember the name.There's a roaring mower two houses down and a quieter roar to my left. Carpenter bees getting all they [...]

2021

Here we are. The irony isn't lost on me that the only post I published in 2020 was called Silent. I won't lie. I enter this year weary. I have absolutely no reason to believe that just because the number changed, circumstance will too. I came here to delete this blog because I haven't felt [...]

day 48

I can't believe we've been traveling for almost 50 days. Since we last met... We've gone from Grover Beach to Big Sur to Santa Cruz to San Francisco to Jenner to Redcrest to Brookings to Portland to Seattle and where we are now. My travel instagram is still catching up, which is fine because I [...]

We’re out

We're on our trip. It's day 5. So far we've driven through Western North Carolina, Asheville, Canton, Waynesville, Cherokee and the Great Smoky Mountains. We drove through Pigeon Forge and stopped in Chattanooga for a two-day music festival. It's been hot and humid and rainy, but today is was chilly and I wore a sweater. [...]
