Getting Ready for a Journey

I am getting organized so that I can leave on a story collection expedition in early February. I am bringing my bike cart, audio recording equipment, solar panel, computer, and hammock on a journey across the US to collect stories and wisdom from the people that I meet. My itinerary is unmapped, but I will begin by heading south.

Current projects include- Asking for funding and sponsorship from different arts organizations,  getting my cart road worthy, and preparing the audio tracks that I have so far to go on to the web and a radio station possibly. I will be leaving from Berkley going south, with an expected first stop in half-moon bay.

    Go Maria! You are awesome and good luck with the journeys, both the inward one and the outward! Brett from Parker AZ (just west of the Colorado River about 150 miles west of Phoenix).

      Hi Maria ~

      We never met, but my very close friend Nat mentioned you to me while we were at Lothlorien COoperative in Berkeley. I was so impressed and amazed at the sound of your journey.

      I am in Santa Cruz as well right now. Nat and I used to live at Cesar Chavez. Wishing you well and blessings on your journey!
