on the road

I fly to Spain in 2 hours.  My travel companions are Ruth, Kerouac, and Auden. I have no agenda other than to get to Barcelona and see what happens.


  • Clay…took a walk along the you path for a few minutes. My eyes saw us in the phrase “stuck on a cliff face” even though where we were stranded may not qualify as a cliff. NLK told me you were in England some time ago, and that there was a poetry bent about you. I love where you’re going in your life’s direction, or simply the fact that you are paying attention to what is true to you. I have given the Army 22 years now…and I cannot find another drop of my sould to leave on the table. I turned 40 and opted to run my first marathon…and loving every mile of it so far. Reading James Allen “As A Man Thinketh” which defines a great deal of the principles at work in us and around us every day in our lives. You’re in the right line of work when you’re helping. The one picture I have of you in my photo album has you biting thru a beer can…not the image of a poet at open mic nite so the contrast to me is intirguing. Wll, hope Spain was memorable. Drop me a line. I’ll volunteer to lead your New England mountain hikes through the White Mountains…


  • Brother Dan,

    Man seeing your name brings back some serious memories – you, me, and CPT Morgan on a hilltop laughing as we watched a huge storm roll in; and what a storm it was. We used to talk of time and things beyond. Sadly the one photo I had of you has disappear in one to many moves. I still have one of Nadia at the prep school. Biting through beer cans; I haven’t done that in a while, though occasionally I still do.


  • Hi Torrance,

    Just took a whirlwind tour of your site…I dig it and will definitely consider one of your books as a travel companion on my next trip.
