Aside & Article

I wanted to add to the “about page,” but decided to just add this page so I could keep the other page short and simple.

This blog post explains the genesis of the spheres (BBs) probably better than any other.

This blog will come to a close by the end of the year. I want to be able to walk away feeling I posted all the images I could. It won’t mean my journey is over, just that I am trying to move forward, into the next chapter.

This is a very personal story being shared in a very public way. I tried to explain that here in the first version of this page, but instead, I’m going to let Kim Carpenter explain via an article she wrote for the Omaha World Herald.

Here is Kim’s story.

Omaha Magazine also printed images a year later, and they asked me to write a reflection, which I did.

This website exists purely to share snippets and snapshots of what I’m doing. It’s also something that might hopefully be useful to me, years down the road, should I choose to revisit it.

Most snapshots were taken with a phone, and with the exception of the “missing piece” images, I’m rarely taking nice travel photos. This isn’t that kind of blog. This isn’t a travel blog and was never actually meant for the world… for people I don’t personally know. Somehow, more people than I anticipated have found this, however.

This isn’t a journey to a place. This is a journey through memories.

But, you’re here, by accident or maybe via a friend, and so I offer you the same metta Beth said for her friends and family — the metta I posted on the About page:

May you be happy.
May you be safe.
May you be healthy.
May you be peaceful.

May you know my gratitude and love.
