A: What I offer is a chance for contributors to truly contribute to the journey, with ideas and enthusiasm as well as the seed money that will get it off the ground. I want to take my backers along for the journey, or to meet them on the way. With your support and suggestions, I believe we can make The New Dharma Bums blog a “go-to” source for Tai Chi ideas and health, based on the teachers and schools I can visit and connect to our network.
The final story, The New Dharma Bums book, will be informed by the trip. The style and voice are works in progress, but the story will draw from the idealism of the original Dharma Bums. I expect to end the story in California – perhaps bowing toward the Far East and heading to the hills, as Kerouac did. Nothing is predetermined. I appreciate all suggestions and will acknowledge those who help me reach the goal. I also believe it is a project worthy of support from a publisher.
