 img_7258I spent most of today noodling over what I learned yesterday, which included a long writing break to consider Ferguson and the people I spoke with from several angles. I still managed some wonderful riding as the day was perfect and there was no traffic. People must have been in their mega churches. From a distance, I thought this one was an airport concourse – it was at least twice as long as the photo frame would accommodate. You need a pan feature to reckon how big Jesus is in this part of the world.

I don’t know why there are bike locks all over the chain link fence that protects cyclists from a better view of the Missouri River, but the vehicle structure that dwarfs the bicycle span is impressive. I felt the circles of my trip lap back on each other when I crossed the Missouri River near its mouth at St. Charles after tracing it for weeks last summer through the Dakotas and Montana.

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.
