A 9 week, 6,000+ mile road trip from our home in Montreal to the East Bay area of California and back again. Camping, staying with friends and family, backpacking, and berthing on a boat in Berkeley - exploring and visiting people in Colorado, Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and Alberta. Driving through (and sometimes visiting) in Ontario, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Saskatchewan, North Dakota, and Minnesota.

I love California. It has its social problems, yes. And traffic. But there is a vast world of beauty, nature, and culture to explore and what we experienced was a drop in the bucket.

California was the primary destination of this summer's road trip and the longest stay in one place.

It is a complicated place, this world. And everyone I know is trying to make a home, find and build community in whatever way they can on this blue-green earth.

I am a small thing, under a big sky. And the only truth that gives me heft, that ties me down in some small importance, is my belonging in an intimate and universal web of relationship.

Our stay in Durango was short and beautiful, involved meeting an interesting family and staying with generous hosts, and included an invigorating hike with knowledgeable, wise, and inspirational companions.
