Literature often describes places we are curious about, regardless of whether we know them or not. This blog maps the journeys laid out in selected books and offers reflections corresponding to the various stops. Happy traveling!

I was born in Eureka, California and adopted when I was 2.  I grew up in Fort Bragg, California, and graduated high school in 1982.  I finished a BA in English at Santa Clara University, and then did two years of volunteer service with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in inner-city Milwaukee.  I lived in Milwaukee from 1986-1995.  I got married in 1995 to Megan Kamerick and moved to San Antonio, Texas where I worked for a non-profit organization while I picked up an MA in International Relations at St. Mary's University.  In 2000, I started a Ph.D. program in Political Science at the University of New Orleans and we lived there until 2004.  Megan accepted a job in Albuquerque 2004, and we have lived there up to the present.  I completed my Ph.D. in 2008 and am currently working at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine.

On the Road: Bear Mountain Bridge

I've been to BMB many times, being that I live about 30 minutes away from it. Often we'll go up to Bear Mountain Park for casual hike along the lake in the summer. It's a very relaxing place.

One time though, I drove up with an ex-brother-in-law (who wasn't ex at the time) who was going to pick up his son for visitation from his ex-wife. they got into an argument and dhe started punching him in the head. it was awesome to watch. Anyway, she lived only a few minustes form Bear MOuntain Bridge and everytime I think of it, I think of driving back across it at night, wrapped in fog, and my ex brother-in-law holding his head and moaning from the beating he'd gotten.

Love this sight and I'll be commenting frequently if you don't mind. I'm a huge Kerouac fan.
