It is an intimate portrait of my daily experiences not filtered through any kind of editorial process. The intention is not to tell all of my life’s experiences, just those surrounding the time of each particular entry. All the same, autobiography, travel journal, and diary could be worthy descriptions of this piece. This work is a true story in its entirety. Each event, hardship, and comical moment was experienced and recorded at the time indicated. My purpose in publishing this writing is to locate the acquaintances from my travels and share this piece of literature with them. I am in constant search of all the characters in this book. If you recognize any of the people in the book as yourself or someone you may know I would love to hear from you.
