The Road Chronicles...
THIS SERIES OF LITERARY SELF-INDULGENCES IS DUBBED "THE ROAD CHRONICLES" BECAUSE THEY USE BEING ON A ROAD AS A CENTRAL METAPHOR ...
The series title emerged organically from the recesses of my psyche, I think upon reflection, in deference to Jack Kerouac's seminal work "On the Road".
My early reading Kerouac's novel first drew me into a period of narrowly focused introspection, then summarily cast me out into the world — where I have since sought to connect with people, ideas and things across a much broader field of engagement.
And the series expresses some of the observations hard-won during the journey from then to now. You will find all the installments at:
Better yet, elect there to follow my blog by email. As a writer-friend of mine says, you can always change your mind later.

About me, Phil Friedman: With some 30 years background in the marine industry, I've worn different hats — as a yacht designer, boat builder, marine operations and business manager, marine industry consultant, marine marketing and communications specialist, yachting magazine writer and editor, yacht surveyor, and marine industry educator. I'm also trained and experienced in interest-based negotiation and mediation. In a previous life, I was formally trained as an academic philosopher and taught logic and philosophy at university.
Before writing comes thinking (the optional-to-read pitch):
