Vagabond Journey

Lost? Kidnapped? Where the Hell is Wade?

Very, very unusual? Not a peep, not a whimper, nothing but nothing from the tattoed sage of Maine (or is it China?)

Where are you Wade?

Where are you Wade?

A short post from Manila. A cryptic musing. Posted almost two weeks ago. Has Wade been kidnapped? Fallen into the grubby mitts of Philippino guerillas and now locked in a cage and fed starvation rations of congealed rice sprinkled with boiled rat tail?

Has Wade succumbed to the salacious entreaties of a back alley bar and slinky, kinky hookers? I don’t think so. That is not the Wade I know, but do we really, really know what lurks in dark hearts?

Is Wade collapsed on a fetid mattress in a skanky hotel room offering his lean, inked flesh to a horde of bed bugs?

Should the American Embassy be contacted about the missing blogger?

Any ideas? Any advice? Give a damn! Write a comment! Our Wade is missing!

About the Author:

I like the velocity of travel — it is the constant motion, like the flitting movement of a loaded brush over canvas, where a rhythm develops and is occasionally syncopated by thwarted plans or minor disaster. It is a way of living and an exploration of the outer world and my inner landscape. There are dangers in such a way of living. Rarely are there external dangers; what is to be feared is the habit of exchanging nullity for nullity, drifting from visa to visa until either the money runs out or the earth simply swallows you. Painting and writing is the binder that holds my center together while also compelling me onward. To what end I do not know … these are voyages of discovery. The destination, if there is one, will manifest itself at some point.
