409 days since the shooting. Greetings from Tucson, AZ. I’m staying with an amazing family who survived the January 8 mass shooting. I met other survivors as well. It has been an important day for me. And this trip is letting me meet so many people in a culture of gun ownership that I never grew up in. It’s revelatory for sure.

406 days since the shooting. Greetings from the Mojave National Preserve. Last night I saw the Milky Way, the perseids meteor shower and a thunderstorm from the desert. This is why I travel to remote places. Because the closest I have come to death was a block away from home. And now I realize the opposite of happiness isn’t depression. It’s cowardice and fear.

403 days since the shooting. Greetings from the farm. I’m helping out my good friend Andrea who I went to college with. It’s great to experience farm living when I spend the rest of the year in cities.
