The Winds of Fate continue to press me, ever eastward (for some reason), once a breeze, now a gale. I decided to close the annex and to distill 27 years worth of collected material possessions into one hiking backpack and a literally a truckload of drawings which went into storage in my grandparent's barn for the indeterminable future. Ss well as a small charming collection of some monumental and sublime art created by my friends and collected over some time -
This past month, since the beginning of the liquidation has been extraordinarily fruitful. The community of Custer and beyond really rose up and pressed their hearts and spirits to us. I was glad to seem my precious possessions go to friends where they will be well stewardedand loved, perhaps even more than I myself am capable of i 'spect.
~The grueling and challenging process of moving over, I set out 10 days ago from Custer Untoward Ashland, Or to explore, build community, and to spend some time with new friends, before continuing on to Minneapolis and points eastward.
As of this hour, I have no money, chronic lyme's disease, hypo-thyroidism, hypo-glycemia, and have struggled with the effects of manic depression since I was 13 years old (I prefer to call myself Emotionally Capricious :)
In spite of all these things, I press onward, in faith, and in hope because I have a Vision. - - - -

I have a vision of a more wholistic way of life for my friends and family, my community, my county, and my world.
I have a vision of art and science as a way of life as work as love as life is love is work.
I have a vison of a prototype for two vehicles that which can advance the cause of life (Roxbury Live-Work-Research Community) and wrok (Atlas Design Company).
Long ago, as long as I am currently able to remember, I have always wanted my life to be useful. To live in service of mankind and of worldkind. I don't know why I have felt as such exactly. Perhaps, it was because I saw so much of life around me squandered and wasted.
I am not wandering aimlessly. I am traveling the continent ultimately eastward with great intention. The intention to take the temperature of this Great American Experiment. The state of the union. Particularly, from an an art, design, invention, and archictectural perspective. To really deduce and tease out how Roxbury and Atlas can best serve this world.
How my life can be most useful.
What really is the "American Dream?" What aspects of what our forefathers envisaged have yet to be realized? How does it all transpose to this, the 21st Century? Or does it even transpose at all? What does it all really mean, to you and to me, to our friends and family? Roxbury and Atlas go on the Road Armed with these questions intending to work hard to find hard answers - - - - And to reflect upon the life and times of Roxbury Annex I.
Ultimately, I hope to find myself migrating to The Northern Kingdom of Vermont, where i hope to acquire an expanse of rural acres on which to build in life and work and research and love and work. - A ground zero from which to explore innovation, art, design, architecture, and invention for the betterment of worldkind for the remainder of my days on this earthen plane.
I seek out, in all earnestness, bold new experiences, across the country as I tentatively plan to spend time exploring and adventuring in Ashland, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Braddock, PA, Philadelphia, NYC, Cape Cod, Boston, and ultimately Vermont.
I look forward to all that will transpire, and I feel privileged to have you, my treasured friends, accompany me in this quest.
In peace and in Love,
Your humble servant,
