On trying to walk across the country.
Of course, the irony of reading this on a screen was almost too much. Glad you made it and could tell us about it!
Wow. I was right there with you. I became empty all at once and yet was full of quiet revelations. How you have described everything made me feel very alone. You also saw a lot of humor throughout and I think that was a blessing. I’m so glad that you really create such a visual. You know what, I’m having a real hard time trying to express my thoughts without sounding like a real idiot. Suffice it to say, your experience really resonated with me in a profound way so, thank you for that.
"cracking open what’s become brittle with certainty." I promise to plagiarize this wording as often as possible. Perfectly phrased. I often try to remind people that nothing beats ground truth. Few takers from the authoritarians.
I gave this missive to my woman, because this explains better to her why I go on journeys than I can explain myself.
such a great piece!
Very enjoyable. Thanks for sharing. But, I think you'd do well to use fewer ten-dollar words. Comes off as performative in a negative way to me.
I almost forgot, you’re a veteran……….Thank You For Your Service.
