Today was a rest day, a day to explore Reno away from casinos. I rode up Windy Hill to see the city from up high in daylight, attended a Unitarian-Universalist Forum on income inequality with my Saturday night host, spent several hours preparing the logistics for my trip through Yosemite – a place that calls for strategic cycling, enjoyed a buffet lunch where I met a gang of medical residents from India, took a writing break at the classic 1960’s Reno Library, and then climbed Skyline Blvd for an engaging evening with my warmshowers hosts. We watched the lunar eclipse from their patio overlooking a canyon.

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.
