Fifty miles in Indiana State Highway 62 west is about as good cycling as it gets. It’s challenging: lots steep climbs; and exciting: lots of curvy downhills. At Leavenworth, the horseshoe curve of the Ohio River is extraordinary. The hills begin to taper by mile thirty, and forty miles in I was in undulating farmlands.
Then I turned onto Highway 162 and rolled into Santa Claus, a holiday-themed town with a huge amusement park that is every bit as kitschy as it sounds.
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.
