The road in overcast sunset, Texas, March 2024.

Started the year with a housing crisis, hit the road, and ended up feeling the most free I’ve maybe been in my life.

I am a wild animal and I will claw my way out of anything.

A mix of phone video from my travels: Flat rural Colorado; Oaks overhead with Spanish Moss in Louisiana; A still Long Island Sound with black rock in Connecticut. Voice-over dialogue from the film Carol.

Carol: I'm going away for a while.

Therese: When? Where?

Carol: Wherever my car will take me. West. Soon... And, I thought, perhaps you might like to come with me... Would you?

Therese: Yes. Yes I would.
