returned from the Silk Road
Finally home after 10 months, 10 countries, and 10,000 km of pedaling the most rugged, sublime tracks the Silk Road has to offer, and exploring wilderness conservation across borders on the way. Now I'm gearing up for the next adventure: writing a book about it. Which promises to be even more grueling than biking the Silk Road, but thankfully it'll involve fewer saddle sores! More details to come, meanwhile wishing you happy trails...
I suffer as always from the fear of putting down the first line. It is amazing the terrors, the magics, the prayers, the straitening shyness that assail one. It is as though the words were not only indelible but that they spread out like dye in water and color everything around them. A strange and mystic business, writing.
