Random Journal Excerpt From a Remote Location

taxi in Tbilisi

We go to Vakthang Lichelli’s office. He’s just brought back some gold discs that give credence to a theory that the Jason and the Argonauts' voyage was actually ten centuries earlier than previously thought. The colonizing Greeks actually showed up here in the 16th century BC.  I’ve set up a small studio in my hotel room and we’re carrying these gold discs—clues to the beginnings of trade routes and civilization—in matchboxes by taxicab across Tbilisi so I can photograph them.
