To the tourist, the US is a kind of ocean of memes that is overwhelming and nearly incomprehensible, not just geographically, but in its social effect.

I had travelled the USA several times during the 1980's, doing the whole road-trip thing in a Volkswagen Kombi.  I loved life on the Interstate and thought a road trip would help me unwind from the stress of my law firm. Essentially, it was a cheap mid-life crisis as I didn't need to buy a red Porsche or a Harley Davidson.

I compiled a photo album, as many do, but it was a heavy and unwieldy thing, and languished under a layer of dust and junk for more than twenty years. I get depressed between book projects, and was still suffering post-completion blues after "Manila 1945 - Aftermath -" when I came upon my old photo album. I was in need of a creative project that would keep me fresh, and still develop my skills.

That's really the nub of it. It is a self-indulgence.  I don't want to lose the ability to dream. It's my digital dreamtime.

"Was this mine?" or even the more confronting "Was this ME?"
