This weblog was formerly known as An American Adventure.Â It was my daily journal of a bicycle trip from Washington, D.C. to Seattle, Washington during the summer of 2002.Â You can still view this blog which is linked under Adventures. Â It was renovated in 2009 to become the website, Pathology of Wanderlust, which was a weblog about a new adventure; one that involved traveling in China and teaching English at a university in Hunan province during the Years of the Ox and Tiger. Â Time has passed and it is now 2012, The Year of the Dragon, which also happens to be my Chinese birth year.
I thought it fitting to resurrect this blog after a two year hiatus. Now I am back. Â The writings presented herein are an attempt to write unselfcensoredly, if that can even be such a word, and get to the root of what I think, feel, and dream. Â All of that probably being quite the opposite of the majority who might happen across this blog. Â For them this site is a challenge, and not a little strange. Â But for those few somewhatÂ like-minded who find a resonance with my writing may also see this really for what it is: An attempt to reach out and show that we are not alone in this world. Â Though the writing itself is rambling, discursive like a shotgun blast into the heart of the matter, it is also a way to practice the only talent I have. Â Perhaps a psychoanalyst or a good reader will probably ever make sense of whatever here is written. Â Which is why I’d say, coming here is a poor use of your free time.
I am grateful to those who persist.
