Proust famously wrote about memory. “chercher? pas seulement: créer”. As I begin three years of traveling and having experiences that I am sure I will reach back to in my old age for fleeting instances of glory I wonder how memory is made. More than that how are those person to person connections made that we all care so much about to the point of writing thousand page books. This blog is my in progress creation of these memories and the process of sharing them. As you tell your stories you simultaneously create them. I am searching through life, reading a book with my feet, but I am creating my memories through ways like this, writing and telling. This is my attempt to create a narrative of memories as quickly as the events that inspire them happen.

*Most of the these posts are made quickly from my phone, so forgive the sure-to-be-typos and so on. Also, the contents of this website are mine (Carl Taylor) personally and do not reflect any position of the U.S. government or the Peace Corps. Now back to the vague artsy talk of memories…

  1. Hi Carl. I enjoy your unique and interesting writing perspective! My name is Michelle, and I was one of the PC Blog It Home contest winners a couple years ago. I’d like to invite you to a six-week Blog Challenge I’m hosting to help PCVs “level up” their Third Goal blogs in the New Year. This is “phase one” for an online project I’m working on with the aim of helping bloggers to promote cross-cultural understanding. I’d be honored if you would visit my new site: http://BloggingAbroad.org, watch the video (or read the transcript if loading videos is a challenge), and sign up to join the adventure in blogging. Take care and happy blogging! Michelle
