How will we live tomorrow?

“I have been influenced by Valerie. I was 36 when we got married. I was the kid in the wonder years. Valerie is my best friend. I have a lot of optimism about the future. People are good. I like the Native American concept of working and providing. You can be happy with the bear essentials. We have to have a reconciliation of the wealth disparity. If we have to be coerced to giving to the poor – to be a socialist state–that will be to our downfall.”

About paulefallon

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.
