Written by Steve Boggan.
What might appear to be a whimsical conceit becomes a surprisingly poignant and often funny foray into the heartland of the ordinary. Having been asked by a newspaper editor, several years ago, to pursue a ten pound note through a series of transactions in Britain, Steve Boggan decides to undertake something more ambitious -to spend 30 days following the same ten dollar bill across America through every transaction it makes. Surrendering himself to the decisions of others and their daily purchases proves to be a strangely cathartic experience which also opens his eyes to a world of serendipity and unexpected kindness.
Steve decides that he should begin his month long quest at the very heart of the country. But of course that in itself is a debatable geographic location.
Music by Crash Meadows: an Arkansas local band who welcomed the author in Hot Springs.
