East Bay day! I rode from Pleasant Hill through the leafy suburbs of Lafayette and Orinda, over the pass of Wildcat canyon, and down through UC Berkeley. I enjoyed the classic streets of craftsmen bungalows in route to the much revived city of Oakland.

I spent the day among ‘Townies’: visiting FEMA’s western headquarters; The Crucible, a crafts incubator that’s been instrumental in promoting the maker-movement; and Temple Tattoos.

It was after four by the time I finished talking to folks about tomorrow, so I took the BART back to Ed and Daphne’s house in Pleasant Hills where we enjoyed shish-ke-bob with their son Daniel and several of their friends. They have an incredible view of Mount Diablo from the top of their street.

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, 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,, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
