Strange Kind of Love seeks to document existing and newly-identified toxic
sites throughout the country and work with community members and present our
of the 1978 Love Canal disaster.
documentation along with our artwork will serve to introduce ourselves to
local community working with churches, community centers,
Arts Councils, public schools, colleges, etc.
Site documentation along with the introductory presentations will be facilitated while living and traveling in an RV named Rocinante III — so named after the 16th-century writer, Miguel de Cevantes' Don Quixote whose horse was named Rocinante.
In 1960, John Steinbeck set out on a voyage of rediscovery of the American Identity
in Rocinante II, a half-ton truck RV, with his beloved, standard poodle — chronicled in his 1962 work, Travels with Charley: In Search of America:
"Once a journey is designed, equipped, and put in process; a new factor enters and takes over.
A trip, a safari, an exploration, is an entity, different from all other journeys.
It has personality, temperament, individuality, uniqueness.
A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike.
And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless."

Everything is two things that converge.
This range of convergence is really the great area of speculation.
