Just finished scanning the last remaining films from the road trip and will post a few on the North America gallery page and the Egypt gallery page. I’m currently working on some short movies related to previous posts and untold moments, and soon hope to start a more ambitious project inspired by the trip. To anyone interested, I’m offering the free exhibition of ten images from My Egyptian Revolution, to any gallery, school or public space. I have a few sets of large prints that I would be happy to send out. Underlying all the photographs of beautiful scenery and iconic sites are a series of interesting stories about hitting the road, and the pros (and cons) of opening yourself up to new things.
After securing a little place today in the Greenlake neighborhood of Seattle, Wes and I made the short drive down to Portland—marking the end of my 25,000+ mile journey with a late dinner and movie at my favorite Oregon institution. Instead of a holiday barbeque or proper veteran remembrances tomorrow, I will be spending the day organizing my stuff and packing up a moving truck. And somewhere in there, I will try to turn the page.
TUESDAY – THURSDAY:
After a couple nice visits during my travels around the Northeast and on either side of Egypt, I said goodbye yesterday to my dad and Sue, and their peaceful home in Honeoye Falls, New York. We are all getting old, but it’s not too late to stay young and foolish. Music is “Almost Home” by Hem.
The country view from the back seat of my dad’s Forester this evening, as we hit the Lima Diner for the Friday night fish fry. After driving 7000 miles or so around the Northeast, I have stopped in upstate New York for a few days before finally setting a course for home.
