To call our trip to California a vacation would not accurately capture its purpose. Perhaps “sad vacation” is a more apt descriptor.
Mark lived in Los Angeles for a year after graduating from Wheaton and being accepted into Brown’s MFA program in 2009. Returning has been bittersweet at best. Memories of our (separate) trips in 2008 abound.
Mark completed his first walk in 2010 at the Pacific and Santa Monica Beach. It’s fitting that our trip begins here.
We’ll spend a bit more time hugging the coast, then it’s time to head for the desert. Updates will follow in good time.
