Letters From Bangkok: To San Francisco From Abroad

5th October 2018 Lily (Crutch), I read the poetry you sent me last night. You’re so good at stretching my imagination for poetry. You’re in California, in the Bay, fourteen hours behind me. That concept, alone, seems unbelievable to me. How can someone be living a life more than half a day behind my own? […]

Letters From Bangkok: To Home From Abroad

1st October 2018 Dear Mom, I’m writing to you while caught in the rain in Bangkok. I checked the forecast and knew it called for rain almost all day but didn’t want to spend a full day shy of getting wet. So, I decided to take a stroll to my favorite Buddhist temple nearby, Wat […]

Letters From Bangkok: To Houston From Abroad

27h September 2018 To my longest friends, This isn’t handwritten like I promised. Maybe next time. Everything in this city is so hard to find.

Letters From Bangkok: To Paris From Abroad

10 October 2018 Dear Lola, It’s week three in Bangkok. I still have a hard time imagining I’m in Thailand. Even though I’ve always wanted to come to this side of the world, it all happened so quickly that my mind is still in Europe. I’m fairly alone most of the time here which I […]

captured memories, photograph memories, photographs and memories, photogenic memory, eidetic memory

3 Years & 30 Photographs

This collection of captured memories — the photographs and memories from my time out on the road — was created for my not-so photogenic memory. I wanted a place to see all of my photograph memories in one place for my struggling eidetic memory. The more I’ve traveled, the more I’ve caught a desire to […]
