This a bit reflective but while in Western Australia, gearing up for some heavy travel, I’ve been thinking of what I left at home. My dog is currently staying with family and I miss him dearly. I think I’ll dedicate some writing to him soon. He won’t care about the post cards I’ll send. More with him later. I also left some books at home at both Mollusk Surf Shop and Day Dream Surf Shop. These are the last few left out of 100 first edition copies. I do not have any plans on printing more so I’d be happy to find out if anyone is able to track down any of them. It was such a special project for me, traveling through Mexico City and writing in my journal and taking photos with my film camera. Felt light and graceful and reckless all at once. Stumbling down the street from the Mezcal nearly getting ran over by a bus and trying to do laundry in the largest city in Latin America. Locals laughed at my handle bar mustache and the bowl cut that were barbered by some of my closest friends after exploring some peninsula in Baja. If you can find a copy at either of those store locations let me know. It would be lovely to know when they land in good reading hands. Flying domestic from Tijuana is also highly recommended. I guess speaking Spanish is too.
Thank you Colin and Schuyler for taking photos of the book at Mollusk. I also miss my friends.
