My pen feels like a paintbrush. I don’t feel time when I sleep.* My best friends: people I like, but people I don’t love.* Efficiency frustrates, turn it down. I try to get my friends excited, about not being invited.* I say, blue & white, clouds… sunlight. It’s hard to make a point.* It’s an […]Read more "A Plagiaristic* Passage"
Spending time in a special place 8,000 feet above sea level. Closer to the sun here. The air is crisp and thin and it makes the drinks feel stronger. The arid smell of pine seeping through the sun roof at 40 mph. Jeffreys, Sugars, Ponderosas. Oxygen breeds mindfulness. Retro motel signage. Vacancy.

Now, Hue is a mid-sized city along with a few historic relics, a serene riverside, and a diverse selection of authentic […]Read more "Hue Too Much Food"
I feel like I’ve rediscovered Asia. I’m eating one of the most complex foods I’ve had since I touched down on this side of the Pacific. It’s called Banh Da Cua Da Lieu (Crab and Brown Noodle Soup), and it’s one of Hanoi’s most iconic dishes. Hanoi just feels so right. I’ve got a lot […]Read more "Banh Da Cua Da Lieu"
Vietnamese coffee is strong, and it’s got a bite, like Mike Tyson’s bite in his bout with Evander Holyfield strong. I order my Ca Phe black with ice (Den Da). When Ca Phe Den Da is served, the glass is only filled about 50% of the way (including the ice); it’s so strong that a caffeine […]Read more "Ca Phe Den Da"
