As I planned my road trip, I realized that due to the low population density, I would have limited opportunities to find subjects for interviews. Despite making some improvements to the project presentation on the website, I still feel that the project’s intention may not be immediately clear to people. Nevertheless, I have faith that everything will work out in terms of the number of interviews and other aspects. Additionally, I am enthusiastic about a new side project that involves landscape photography with elements of dharma. Although I experimented with this idea during a trip to upstate NY last year, I anticipate more interesting results this time around while exploring national parks. Weaving dharma into these epic hiking adventures feels appropriate  , and incorporating dharma into daily activities has gradually become a regular part of my mind training beyond meditation.
