Greetings reader.  I am an architect and father from Cambridge, MA.  The blog’s name, The Awkward Pose, refers a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build leg strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity out from under our feet.  The objective is to achieve balance without stability. 

The blog features entries that address opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition.  Entries emphasize my personal experience in yoga, my evolving connection with Haiti, and my observations as a citizen of the United States.

  1. Hi Paul – My name is Jessica Linzey. I’m a Canadian journalist in Haiti for several months making radio documentaries about the role of architecture and design in a post-disaster setting. I’d love to talk to you about the work you’ll be doing here if you’re up for it. I’m in Jacmel these days, but will be back and forth to PaP over the next few weeks. You can always reach me at jesslinzey@gmail.com, or on 4701 2954. Many thanks, Jessica

    I’m not sure how to reply on this forum to your comments about Uber, but I agree wholeheartedly with you. Another way for ‘business’ to make a good living at the expense of poorly paid ‘self-employed contractors.’

    Hi Paul. My name is David Raider and I work at NewBridge on the Charles, a retirement community in Dedham. I heard your recent interview on Radio Boston and would like to get in touch to explore a possible speaking engagement. Please email me if you are interested at davidraider@hsl.harvard.edu so we can start a dialogue. Thanks!

    Hello Paul, I hope you’re well. My name is Emma Lewis and I am writing from the Tibetan Buddhist Resource Center in Cambridge, MA. I just read and enjoyed your article “Ancient Cave Drawings, Modern Science and the Pretense of Preservation.” We here at TBRC are really fascinated by questions of preservation, the link between ancient wisdom and modern technology. Our work involves digitizing ancient, rare texts found in monasteries around Asia using field scanners, and sharing these digitized materials with people around the world online. You can take a look at some of these texts here: http://www.keepwisdomalive.tbrc.org/discovertext/

    I’m writing to ask if you might be interested in writing about our effort to combine the wisdom of the ancient and the digital. In any case, it would be lovely to speak with you. You can reach me at emma@tbrc.org. Thanks!

    Hi Paul,
    just looked up your name because I am a resident of Racine, WI. I am reaching out to thank you! What a wonderful gesture to the RPD. Now having found your website, I am interested in reading your books. Your generosity and thoughtfulness is beyond this simple email.:-)

      Helen –
      Thank you for being in touch with me.

      I appreciate the good work that the Racine Police Department is doing, especially in a time when there is so much discord between our police and our citizens. At this time my book, Architecture by Moonlight, about my experiences in Haiti, is available through Amazon. If you read it, enjoy! and send forward any comments.

  6. I really enjoy your posts and thoughts.

    Hi Paul, I just read your article in Huff Post about your plan to leave your house to Just-A-Start. What a thoughtful, community-minded thing to do. I hope more homeowners in a similar position as you will be inspired to do the same.
