I refuse to believe it’s already been a month, even though Spain seems like a lifetime ago now. I’ll never get over how travel messes with our perception of time.




I’m writing from my little apartment in the south of Osaka, a low down neighborhood with plenty of personality. I’ve learned so much already, my preconceptions of Japan simultaneously obliterated, reinforced, and nuanced. There are pla... Read more of this blog post »

“ 'I have nothing to offer you but a lifetime’s worth of failures and misfortune,' Sergio said with damp eyes,
'but they are yours if you want them.'

And for some reason buried deep in the incomprehensible mystery that is woman, she did want them. Very much.”
Josh Wagner, Deadwind Sea

“I no longer believe there's any such thing as losing a woman. A man loses himself as women slip into the future.”
Josh Wagner, Smashing Laptops: A Nomad's Romance

“There are exes with whom it is too dangerous to allow even a moment’s eye contact. These are not exes at all, and never will be, and that’s the problem.”
Josh Wagner, Smashing Laptops: A Nomad's Romance
