Riding through the exurbs of any American city is the least enjoyable part of my journey. Pedaling forty-four miles into Houston, the fifth largest metropolitan area, fastest growing among the top twenty, and notoriously ill willed toward cyclists, was simply a chore.

In order to gauge my progress across this featureless landscape littered with attention grabbing signage, I decided to stop at every five-mile interval and photograph whatever I saw at that point; a game we played in graduate school photography class. Can you find patterns in this urban cacophony?

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.
