And here we are, “Men Alive!”
I’m returning to Nepal (where I wrote most of this website that fateful summer of 2014, and where I plan to re-write it this nebulous wintertime – while re-envisioning how I’ll go forward), so please be patient as I piece together this “farewell” to the blog…
…And enjoy the notes below I’m currently working with as a glimpse into my “writer’s process.” Forever first draft!…
…But if you’re new to “Man Alive!” – please skip the ensuing ridiculousness and feel free to read the renditions of “Manifesto Alive!” posted previously. 🙂
