    @jollyhippo Wow; that sounds really interesting… and I like the idea of Jewish magical realism. :)

    My story is long, but to answer your Matador question, I’m the managing editor of the Matador’s series of blogs, so that’s why I’m all over! ;)

    @jollyhippo Ha! Matador can provide hours of thesis procrastination and surreptitious internet surfing in dingy work cubicles around the world! Tell me about your thesis!

    @jollyhippo Brittany, etc? Can’t help you there…I only headed south from Paris (and that was only in October – but January? Brrr!). Have to say it would be awesome to stand on the famous beach at Normandy, any time of year. Enjoy your trip – you’re on quite an epic journey!

    @jollyhippo Which coast are those pics from.. Scotland or Ireland?? so cool. your pics are great. i especially like the one of the car nonchalantly falling off of a cliff into wavy lines (or ocean).

    Other agreeances: Barcelona is the greatest. The

I am a writer, and once traveled many places, but haven't done so in a very long time (for me, at least). Soon, I'll be touring my fiance on a greatest hit version of my bygone travels.

I run a college and graduate school consultancy called Just Start Applications, through which I help applicants learn how to tell their own stories. And I write prose and draw very bad comics for my blog:

I write just about everything, from marketing copy to fiction to journalism and personal essays. It's pretty much my life, and I like it that way.

I miss the road.
