Based in Williamson County, Texas, WHY ARE Y'ALL HERE? is a travelog by Spencer Darr. His posts explore Texas counties through photos, maps, music, videos, writing, and--most importantly--interviews with local residents about why we are where we are. Y'all enjoy!

A Journey for Another Time, Perhaps

A Journey for Another Time, Perhaps

 A nifty bird that has been living outside my apartment. The bird used to have another bird that would perch on a fire extinguisher across the hall. There they were, every night. Then, one day, the other bird left, and one bird remained alone. A few days, or maybe weeks later, the other bird returned. Then it flew away again, leaving the same bird perched on the same fire extinguisher alone. Again. For the last fucking time.

Due to financial, automotive, mental health, and marital difficulties--as well as preparation for a career/life change--I am suspending this blog and journey for the time being.

Thank you for those of you who have supported this and followed along and I hope at the very least, this has inspired you to do some of your own exploration here in Texas. It is a truly inspiring, sacred, royally fucked up place and I look forward to living the rest of my life here. :)
