The road to Gulmarg, India, has not been a smooth one. But I think we’ve got a handle on things now.
Two of our crew are sick as fuck from food poisoning, while your truly and the incomparable Wiggles have been slaying deep, dry Indian pow the last 3 days. Photographic evidence to follow, but the Internet here is spotty, dodgy, and prone to failure (roving blackouts are standard); large files and images tend to get jammered.
In the meantime, I’m writing a novel, reevaluating everything, and enjoying the crap out of life right now. Happy Valentine’s Day to all the people I love or ought to.
Haven’t managed to connect with the other two people in our crew as of yet. Pretty keen to get the hell out of here ASAP
Been an adventure already.
Well, off I go to India.
For a month.
I’ll make a point of trying to get online while overseas, but no promises.
In the meantime, thanks so much for keeping up with me and checking out this online zone of mine. It’s been a terrific outlet for me, and, I hope, will continue to be when I return home.
While I embrace the prospect of change and its absolute inevitability, I don’t expect to come back from this trip spouting platitudes and an assumed mystique of bliss- I’ve already got those covered, or at least that’s what I tell myself. The up-track is where I belong, that much I know.
On that note, it’s been an incredible winter already, three of the best months of my life. Thanks for being part of it, if only from a distance- I appreciate the attention and have become keenly aware that recognition and communication are huge drivers for me and my efforts, however fractured and lacking in focus my activities and thoughts may be, and however removed or distal people keeping tabs on me may be.
Anyways, thanks for being rad and staying awesome. Take care ‘til we cross paths again.
Q “Hey, where you wanna go for lunch?”
A “I don’t know… Meat Me In the Middle?”
This idea has some serious legs, works on a lot of levels, loose ground beef in your belly (literally meat-in-your-middle), food cart on a peninsula of curb-level pavement, meeting your friend halfway between your workplaces… and just saucy enough! Better copyright that shit ASAP!
