The Money: Not for Charity, Not for Profit

HWWLT Logo on yellowI’m happy to report that no sooner did I announce my bicycle adventure than people began positing unexpected responses. Just as I hoped!

Many people asked what charity I was raising money for; a few asked whether I was crowd-sourcing my adventure. Each question baffled me until I grasped their intent. Money defines so much of our lives; folks naturally assumed there must be a money angle to my enterprise.

There is not. I am not raising money for any charity, nor would I ask anyone to underwrite this journey. If my adventure has anything to do with money, it’s exploring how much life I can squeeze out of prudent resources. I have enough money. Not because I have so much, but because my wants are few. Besides, I’m seeking the most authentic aspects of America, which are often inexpensive.

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
