On Thursday I slept in Carolina, Puerto Rico. On Friday I slept in Orlando, Florida. On Saturday I slept in Gulfport, Mississippi. Today is Sunday and I will sleep in Austin, Texas...and hopefully dream about the road.

A pic from back when my photos were sent places by an agent (it didn't last long, but it was cool). A fictionalized version of this juke joint appears in Zero Saints.

It's great to write about how light illuminates things in miraculous ways, but most of what I write comes from the shadows, from the dark corners light can't reach...or is too scared to illuminate.
