this has been described as a vision quest, or by the woman at wal-mart me trying to find myself. how long have you been trying to find yourself? gee, lady - how would i know?
i’m taking off from manassas, va, and going to san francisco, ca.
in the meantime, i’m stopping on tuesday (aug. 2) to see sufjan stevens in brookyln, ny. after that, i’m camping, slumming, relaxing, reading, and writing my way to landmarks, attractions, and spiritual destinations along these united states.
pictures accompany words accompany explanations accompany tributes and declarations of love.
i lived in lawrence, ks, for two years. it was the love of my life and contains a love of my life. my lips, when they kiss the air, are only kissing the city i love, hoping to find what i found there, elsewhere.
why not go back to lawrence? i’m not so lucky as to be allowed. so you’re saying san franciscan’s are talentless assholes who pale in comparison to your kansas brethren? maybe… although i hope to be wrong. i hope to see the world is bigger than kansas (bet you’ve never heard someone say that before!). i hope to see the world is bigger!
bookmarks. bookends. the beginning of another cosmic year? the light at the end of the road? the world with the eternal fall? the seasonal drifting of a madman living in his car for two months as he prepares to start over.
