This project is a fictional document. A collection of short stories in which my beliefs and judgments are projected onto the American landscape. My ingredients are sparse pockets of celebrations found in laundromats, parking lots, second-hand shops, backyards, amusement parks and fast food joints. My goal is to weave together cultural relics, anthems and articles of faith to discuss ideas about optimism. It is a work in progress, editing and sequencing will change as the series develops.
