real true life stories

When I went travelling I sent out occasional emails to the morgueatlarge list at topica. These can be read here.

Three trips get pages of their own, full of pictures and notes: Palestine and Israel (Easter '04), Ireland (Oct '04), and North America (Aug-Nov '05).

And this one time, at band camp, I turned my buddy Leon into a god. A strange but true story, told at the link.
