Larry Crowder

Mustang Island

I worked freelance as a website designer October 2001 to April 2017. I retired when my wife died of metastatic breast cancer. For the time being, I'm a traveler. As of September, I hope to be homeless. I don't know where to go next. Beaches, campgrounds and motels will do for a while. I am adrift.

I won't write to friends and family often enough, I know. But I will post pictures here to show what I see and where I've been. If you're ever curious about "whatever happened to Larry," look here. I hope to return to my version of normal in a year or two. Somewhere.

I'm not doing this on Facebook or other social media because I don't need to. And I don't like all the excess baggage that comes with social media.

One more thing. You won't see my face for a while. When I was in the hospice, a friend wrote to ask how I was doing. I looked in the mirror and almost took a picture of how I was doing at that specific time. I'm glad I didn't. Sending that picture to anyone who knows me would have been cruel. The face in the mirror is better now, but I have a long way to go. Maybe by August.
