I don't believe in writing a lot of explication whenever I post a video in a blog. I prefer to let the video speak for itself. It makes for faster page-loading, and really, there is nothing I have to add here that isn't said in the video. This is me from a few weeks ago, reflecting on a conversation I had with a Frenchwoman in Nice.
Some of you may know that I am currently on a walkabout. A walkabout in indigenous cultures is ... oh, hell with it. I explain it all in this video right here. Anyway, my walkabout is the reason I haven't been keeping my blog up to date. I have been in Antibes, France, since December 26, 2015, and have been too distracted by the wonders of this place to keep my blog up to date. So here in this video is an explanation of Geek Pray Walkabout, which is also the title of my memoir of this experience, which I hope to have ready by the end of 2016. Below that are some key episodes from the video diary, with Geek and Pray on the left marking the time before Antibes and Walkabout marking the time in Antibes.
