July 2014
I have homes everywhere, many of which I have not seen
That is perhaps why I am restless.
Goodbye Houston

August 2012
Drink the wine that moves you
as a camel moves when it's been untied,
and is just ambling about.

December 2011
Visiting the Pacific Northwest
clouds hang low and long.
For the first time since high school
I want to return.


>>    


June 2011
Body and soul have aged, another child is born
Trying to catch my breath
Don't think... feel

January 2011
"I've got kids, I've got a wife, we're stuck with each other for a while.
And suddenly there's an understanding that this is what life is -
it's actually the mess, it's the mud, it's the tangle.
It's not the clean, hygienic ... fireworks.
It's the little invisible novels that get written between two people every day of their lives."
- DM

December 2010
Degree in hand, I head south.
"The horizon leans forward,
offering you space to place new steps of change"


>>    


March 2010
Writing madly, trying to finish my studies.
I sit behind keyboard for long hours.
Sage provides diversion.


>>    


August 2009
At the airport in Бишкeк,
USAF cargo planes litter the tarmac.
Meanwhile, Urumqi China is paralyzed with strife.
In the mountains, I find solitude.


>>    


January 2009
Family holiday to Texas!
En route, we cover hills of leafless stubble.
The South welcomes us with mild weather...
Right place at the right time.

September 2008
baby baby baby baby baby baby
baby baby baby
baby baby baby baby

July 2008
Unripe mulberries are mildly hallucinogenic...
and they're all over our yard.
Back home, I tinker with house and trailer.


>>    


May 2008
At Irkeshtam Pass, the Chinese border closes for Golden Week.
Stuck between countries, I walk the hills for dayz.
Earth kindly accepts my baggage.


>>    


March 2008
I'm in Kashgar studying Uyghur.
The police restrict movement and instill fear.
I sympathize with the locals who know nothing else.


>>    


February 2008
Chinese New Years in Beijing.
Western New Years in Hanoi.
I get drunk and wander the streets.
My wife is pregnant.


>>    


December 2007
Vietnam is a country of contradiction.
Collatoral damage from the American war is ubiquitous.
Capitalism sprouts like a weed from the remains.
Communists get rich.


>>    


November 2007
Following the birds south for winter,
I slip into Laos.
The Mekong flows, massive and silent.


>>    


October 2007
I roll onto the Tibetan Plateau. It's vast and chilled.
Beijing controls by force, exhaling paranoia.
Monks are under quarantine in Lhasa.
I become sad and angry at something I don't understand.
I am escorted off the premises.


>>    


September 2007
Off to Burningman and then back to Rochester, NY.
It's nice to be home...
We watch movies in the park.
Life is fine.


>>    


July 2007
I'm in Bakersfield, the armpit of California.
The smell of oil wafts through this oven of a city.
We get rich off that shit.

I escape into the mountains with trailer and 2 cats in tow.


>>    


April 2007
We form the Concrete Discussion Group
and hold a "meeting" in Rochester's
abandoned subway tunnels.
Photos.


>>    


March 2007
The snow finally comes to upstate New York...
now, I'm ready for Spring.
Time is spent crafting our new/old house,
learning about the atmosphere + deep earth,
and mixing music.


>>    


September 2006
Skool in New York proves different
from life in the Chinese wilderness.
More than the environments themselves,
I enjoy flux.


>>    


August 2006
In a Kyrgyz family home on the Pamir Plateau,
I am detached from the familiar.
My body has become seasoned to the desert and fermented mare's milk.
Days are spent crawling solo across a harsh, striking landscape.
My own pent up shit is released to nature as god.
Respect to the nomads who live here.


>>    


July 2006
Angel & I bought a home!
It's mad ghetto... But, I see potential.
Check back in a year.


>>    


June 2006
The familiar smell of hot oil and pepper assaults my nostrils...
I have arrived in Yunnan, China to collect water and rock.
The Mekong proves long and deep.


>>    


April 2006
Wandering the New York countryside,
I happen upon a nuclear power plant.
Exploring the premises, I'm surrounded by
a troop of black FBI-style SUVs and told to leave.
I was hoping for a visitor's center...

Also went to Philly and bought massive speakers.
Time to sound my barbaric yawp!


>>    


March 2006
The West Coast draws me close and soothes.
Rare thunderstorms gather in Death Valley.
I am fortunate to be here now.


>>    


February 2006
Saw Prefuse 73 at a small dive in Buffalo, NY.
Shot a 1 minute video.


>>    


January 2006
Illicit gatherings in an abandoned subway.
The space is vast and textured.
Tracks of mineralized seepage coat the walls.
I turn on our speakers and
the underground fills with sound.
