  • When I finished school I bought a van and wandered around the USA by myself for about a year. Someone once asked me why and what was the purpose. But there were so many purposes and yet there was none and that may have been the point. I needed to see this country and figure it out. Figure me out. Of course, wandering is probably not the answer - long term, yet there is still discovery, on many different levels.

    The western USA is known for its big skies. I feel completely inadequate when trying to describe a big sky. I felt like an insect in a jar. But maybe we are just insects in a jar.

    Regardless, I hope I never stop wandering entirely.
