A couple weeks ago, I was sitting at one of Madrid's many spectacular cafés with three friends and I asked them that cliché question that everybody hates, but which I think is worth contemplating from time to time: What would your ideal life look like?
10 Cities/10 Years was the scaffolding upon which I built my life; now I can stand without it.
I have visited 40 of the 50 states, lived in 10 (plus one district) and driven across vast swaths of this nation's undeveloped land, yet I've never even been to Canada.
Already, the conversations I've had or been party to have illuminated my reasons for doing this project. I'm surrounded by people in their late teens to early twenties, that age when uncertainty about and anticipation for the future are measured in equal doses. Plans are being made, most of which will be abandoned within the next 4 years, if not the next 4 weeks.
