About Journeys to Love

A Deadwood, SD biker couple looking for the meaning of love may seem out of place in a Buddhist temple in New York, among the Amish of Pennsylvania, in Salt Lake City’s gay pride parade, the Baptist churches of Alabama, a Colorado prison hospice, on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation, the streets of East Detroit, or in the St. Louis Ballet. But we delight in our differences and connections with the diverse people and cultures we meet, riding out to them all in a quest to offer the true nature of love through video and writing. We want to bring folks the humor, hope, and human connections we've discovered at a time when our country, and our world, need them most. Our videos and our upcoming book explore the loves of diverse places, purposes, and people, showing that while the faces of America are changing, those faces needn't turn away from one another until we all become strangers in our own land. And you can help tell these stories. But why would you? What good can that really do?
Well, these adventures aren't romance and fairy tales (Well, okay, a few are romantic.) Instead, they're about what Dr. Martin Luther King, a man who knew a few things about love, described as "the highest good; the only answer to humankind's problems." Combined with the other human superpower - storytelling - it's the most potent light to drive back the darkness we see across our country today. Seeing that kind of love happening right now between diverse people, cultures, and communities upends stereotypes, dispels suspicions, and makes connections through witnessing real stories of devotion to community, craft, cultural traditions, heritage, duty, faith, art... and of course, partners and family!
On our journeys across America, we've encountered a profound longing to somehow reach out and restore the human bonds between us. To do that, we have to see and hear one another. Only then can we begin to build together the kind of country where all are welcome, and all are treasured. We've found that the most powerful way to do that is through seeing and sharing what matters most in all of our lives: 
Our loves...
 
(... and dogs. We really love dogs.)
