Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA.
My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com 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, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question.
Thank you for visiting.

A biology teacher’s words in college drove home to me, a very elementary point: “To survive, one must exist.” So the way we will live tomorrow may well depend on how successful we are at existing today. It’s just too easy to concentrate on all the wrongs and injustices in our existence and wonder how we and our children can ever hope to get by tomorrow. This quandary is not new — our fathers and our grandparents before them, likely asked the same question. So I think the answer must lie in our resolve to persevere and do what is right, no matter how challenging the obstacles must be. And often times that’s a lonely place to be. In the end, generations from now, I can only speculate what the answer might be, if in fact it is able to be captured by words. Maybe it’ll be some combination of love, learning from the past, empathy, forgiveness, humility, and constructive intelligence.
Paul — wishing you the best– I’m honored that I will see you at the beginning of your fantastic experience here along the New Hampshire seacoast.

I am excited that the first night of my journey will be with you in Seabrook!
Hello, my name is Alexio (Alex) and we met in Ann Arbor, MI at the skateboard park. Since that day you have been in my thoughts with your journey, and I hope that our paths may cross again one day. You inspired me, and I would love to met again to share knowledge, stories, and experiences with one another. It has been a dream of mine since early high school to do what you are doing on a longboard.
So gogd to hear from you. I posted tour response to ‘How will we live tomorrow?’ on the website. I am in Iowa now, and will continue west. If you take off on your long bard, let me know where you’re going and maybe we could meet! Otherwise I will back in Cambridge in 2016, and if you roll through you can stay overnight with me.

Today we hear of the passing of that great American wordsmith, Yogi Berra, who, at some point in his past, has answered Paul’s question about tomorrow: “The future ain’t what it used to be.”
Rest in peace, Yogi.

I found your card in the pages of a library book I checked out and am charmed that it led me to this website. I hope you’re still doing this work. I think the act of talking to people, especially ones who look, think, vote differently than us about questions like this can be the kind of socially transformative work our global community needs.
What a wonderful serendipity connection! Thanks for your message.
