A little break

As you probably have noticed, I have been a little delinquent over the past few weeks about posting. As I said in my last post, it is not for a lack of things to write; rather, school work has had to take a priority, and will so for the next three weeks. But, I will be back to writing, and there are some new projects that I will be working on that I am excited to share with you.

First, I will be moving to the Motor City, Detroit, next month, it seems. I will be there without a motor to wheel me around. I am sure this will be something that will get me thinking about how our lives have been laned by roads, and about the contradictions of having mobility only if you have something to be mobile with. Roads and transport have not only shaped our lives, but their presence, and their influences, have been reflexively bolstered by our newly shaped lives.

Second, I will be starting a project something that I am tentatively calling Dissovled, which will be focused on two things--dissolving the boundaries between 'us' and 'them', be they political, cultural, material, monetary; and dissolving the mind-matter divide, that power dynamic that is a source of ecological and spiritual tensions.

I will be back later this month. Peace.
