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 in 2016 from the recesses of my psyche, I think upon reflection, in deference to Jack Kerouac's seminal work "On the Road".
My early reading of 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. My writing and engagement on social media has been an extension of that period of awakening.
And this series expresses some of my own 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.
