While I lived on the road, traveling from Portland, Oregon, to Portland, Maine, and zigzagging over all but five US States I blogged a lot. Thinking that the constant shifting of perspectives and world views would stop once I stopped traveling seems silly now. I am still encountering odd people with fascinating views and crazy ideas, only now they come to me. There is a never ending selection of weird events in the bay area and the people who have come to visit me at my home range from dreadlocked anarchist nomads to silicone valley venture capitalists.
I want to capture not only my journey but the areas of exploration in which I constantly stumble upon new discoveries.
I love narrative. It took me ages to understand “this postmodern thing” with its “distrust of meta-narratives” and its lack of absolute truth and the paradigm of seeing our world in a “conflict of narratives”.
Much of this blog will be an exploration of different narratives, their origins, their implications, the ways in which they conflict, and the crossroads at which they intersect.
