The Roof Is Leaking : Day 2

Friday 7.28.17 7:47am People here have their dogs to bark at people who walk by. They are mostly outside, just animals. Not inside cuddling, eating organic dog food. Showing up on stories in their strange belly-up positions. They have a big bag of Kibble poured into a large trash bin and they get a scoop …

My Life As A Horseman : Day 1

Thursday 7.27.17 6:45pm I can’t decide if I want to start with the drive or the motel. I guess the motel. I feel homesick. I am in a dark box with a TV from the 80s and a microwave from the 70s. I paid $5 extra/night for this microwave. The desert drive through Arizona was …
