This is a multimedia rendering of my transcribed and edited travel diaries and correspondence from a protracted period abroad between December 2019 and November 2018 undertaken in an effort to…be able to finish the sentence.
The raw manuscript is considerable, and now I am winnowing and polishing the pieces and posting them on here as they and I are ready. An organism of sorts, to the extent that a literary multimedia undertaking can be called a living thing.
Many names have been changed, and some of the direct quotations have been edited for clarity and length. Everything else is utterly true and almost all is real.
Insofar as this constitutes a project warranting dedication, it is dedicated to Casey, because it was basically written to Casey and because I will always want her back, and to Jamie, whom I will never get to show.
There are also many, many others I thank in an ongoing way.
If you know me, and also if you don’t, please don’t tell or ask me anything about whatever you learn herein. This is not a dialogue.
