Berlin was cold the way I imagined it would be, the way I wanted it to be: desolate, romantic, vacant, post-Communist. I had so many ideas about the city, so many stories about my birthplace stored up, that my visit began with getting past them to see what was sitting in front of my own frozen nose.

Why Bones?“To the Bones” is an experiment in shedding the excess padding that keeps me comfortable—whether that means turning off the AC and opening the windows, making from scratch instead of buying at the store, or looking someone in the eye when I don’t have (or don’t want or don’t know if it’ll help to) spare change. This blog is a celebration of scaling back—just enough to appreciate everything that I do have. Which turns out to be a lot. It’s a challenge to feel the world down to my bones, and document others doing the same. Read more about the cross-desert roadtrip that inspired the blog here.
