22k Mile Scoot for Peace from Alix Bryan on Vimeo. My friend Jacob sent me a studio copy of his beautiful song, Backroads, to put on the DVD version of this video–it’s a submission for grad school. In the future, I would like to rework some of my footage into a movie that features his […]

The by-ways, highways, routes, lanes, and country roads of America reflect a regions culture;  offer up stories to the traveler that can not be found on the interstates. Sure if you need to zoom along from point A to point B, jump on the slab. You will notice that in America, we share an overarching […]

Be the lamp

In: Inspiration, P.E.A.C.E 08

So, where did I leave off? Oh, right,  a 300 mile ride that brought me into Madison, WI, as evening fell. That’s probably the longest stretch of riding I will do until I make the drive from Washington D.C. to Maine. For now, there are many stops along the way, driving 50-200 miles at a […]

Who will grab the torch?

In: Inspiration

Most of today is tied up doing research for my job. While traveling I can only seem to offer it a piddly 2 hours a week, but at the beginning of each month, I need to have some new bloggers lined up. Back in April, while plugging away at my barista job, I was offered […]

I believe in community. There is a proverb that goes something like, “One generation plants the trees; another gets the shade.” Or, as Sandra Day O’Connor once said, “We don’t accomplish anything in this world alone … and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one’s life and all the weavings of […]

Hey there, Daphne here. In Maine, that is… Here’s a picture of me with Alix in Missoula, MT last year…stay tuned for one of us in San Francisco next week! I’m on the wings here at and I have to say I’m enjoying the ride. I can see many of you are

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY Well, here it is Mother’s Day, and mine is far away. Irony has it that I’m actually visiting my father, in Jackson, MS. It’s appropriate-I don’t think I’ve ever seen him on Father’s Day. And I wouldn’t be alive and scooting for Peace without their combined effort to bring me here. The […]

  Don’t miss CLAW 3, Return of the CLAWs, this Tuesday, April 8th, from 8-10 p.m. If for some reason (other than you don’t live in Cville) you haven’t heard of CLAW, then click here. I’m very excited to cast aside my pacifist tendencies and well, flex my mongo muscles for some entertaining arm wrasslin’. […]

Martin Luther King

In: Inspiration, Non violence

Look, this isn’t funny. Three great leaders were assassinated within 5 years of one another. What this says to me is that the idea of change scares people, and people will act out of fear and bigotry to subdue the brighter light. According to the campaign news, our country, is hungry for change. Obama has […]

A peace piece, by D.

In: Fundraising, Inspiration, Peace Sign

I am very humbled and overjoyed by two major events yesterday. A gentleman named Heinz, a customer at my coffeeshop, donated a generous sum of money to the gas fund. His donation of $250 covers a large portion of petrol. I placed his name on the Peace map. The Peace map is how I will […]

Matua and Vespadition

In: Direct Action, Inspiration, Scooters

“You can not travel the path until you have become the path itself” This is the credo of Matua, who will be traveling a long path starting this spring. I heard from Matua in the end of January. His first letter came to me a month after I had decided to complete the Peace sign […]

   *photo taken July 27, 2007, in Atlanta, GA In honor of a man who shared with his dream of liberation with the world, and whose legacy still nourishes the ideas of justice and freedom. Today all the Presidential candidates offered their respects, and oh do I pray that they begin to embody the truth […]

A Welcome

In: 2007 Blog, Charlottesville, Community, Inspiration

We move separately but unite energetically, reveling in the bliss of being alive. This website is a “WE SPACE” PRODUCTION. So, while you visit, celebrate […]

This is an excerpt from my correspondence with a very cool, supportive female scooterist in D.C. We are trying to get a ride in place, if not with a bunch of people, at least a chance to meet one another. Anyways, I am posting my response to make my modus operandi a bit clearer to […]
