A day of anecdotes.
I see flags made from pallets all over rural areas.
The Federal prison at Butner is a campus, of sorts, very different from Duke’s.
Durham was once the Black Wall Street, a hotbed of African-American entrepreneurs.
My fraternity brothers who founded 8 Rivers Capital have offices overlooking the Durham Bulls ball field.
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.
Glad you got to see the boys. Sorry I wasn’t in Durham this week.
