  • There's a reason it is a euphemism. Symmetry, together, match. Touch.

    I cement in my mind's video screen, the image of a together that, for now, I can only play with via implements in my kitchen drawer. It just... feels... right. It provides reason for everything else.

    Clinging to this future, I am guided, driven, led, pushed, comforted... even sometimes tortured by it's stubborn lack to become now. Patience is the cruel taskmaster, teasing me to give in.

    I will take many miles and mountains and find myself holding but one spoon.


    I am using Cowbird to share the story of a 15,000 mile road odyssey I took in 2011, which started with me quitting my job in March and setting out in June for a loop around the US and Canada. It's less of a day by day narrative and more of an attempt to tell a story of the story, with some amounts of imagined bits that emerge on looking at the media from the trip, including the more than 1400 images, videos, and audio files collected in my digital time capsule, the Storybox.
