“I take that as an encompassing ‘we.’ I’m worried about the election. Not so much the outcome but the toxicity its generated, the latent racism, Muslim-phobia, that is going to drive our agenda. I’d like to think that if Hilary wins it’ll be fine, but I don’t think so. These forces still remain. For me, I’m here at a poetry conference exploring my creative side.”

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.
