IMPORTANT NEW NOTES FROM JUSTIN:
Iíve been traveling for 192 days! I'm in Washington, DC. Life is busy, as I am working very hard to find a management company to work with on the release of my album. And, my new web site: http://justinwinokur.com is very close to complete.
Iím converting the diary entries and photos of my travels into a book. Iím still collecting content, too. So, Iím looking for nice, fun people who can put me up for a few nights, host me, feed me, and show me their unique flavor of America. Iím looking forward to learning about your world and writing about our times together! If you think it might be fun to host me for a day or two or three, email me.
Please make sure to include your address and phone number in your email.
I am especially looking for places to stay anywhere on the East Coast north of Virginia.
Please contact me ASAP if you want to hang out!
If you believe in what I am doing and want to help support me, please do so! You can donate money to me using PayPal or with a credit card. Email me for more information! Make sure to check out my photo sales page!
US Tour Day 164: Affectionless in Columbia, SC
Affection. I miss it. A touch, a hug, a kiss. I've been in Columbia, SC for just over a week now and my nerve endings are wilting for want of touch. I feel like there is a part of me that is starving slowly.
I spoke with my friend Jennifer on the phone the other day about this. She said she knew exactly what I meant, "I remember this one time that I was so hungry for human contact. I was thinking back to the last time I got a hug or even a handshake. I remembered that the last time I'd touched someone was a few days back when I bumped into this guy in an elevator. Isn't that sad? I felt terrible."
Food, water, shelter, clothing. Survival. Some might add reproduction to that list, but I'm not in the reproducing business. I'm not even that much in the survival business, either. I don't want to survive. I want to live; I want to thrive.
