(? - living) U.S.A.
Magazine publisher, adventurer
Michel Lane and his lover James Crotty (see) are "The Monk" - it is the epic saga of two men who quit their jobs and sold everything they owned and hit the road with their cats, Nurse, Nurse's Aide, and Dolly Lama, and for twelve years traveled across America, publishing the world's only mobile magazine.
They traveled first in a '72 Ford Econoline van and then moved up to a 26-foot Fleetwood Bounder motorhome, and then moved laterally into a 12-foot Suburu, reporting on the incredible people, places, and parking lots they encountered along the way, until they drove each other crazy living in such cramped quarters, especially after New York, where one too many breakdowns wiped them clean, sending the Monks on a long backwards spin across America where they landed in L.A. where yellowing back issues of Monk were held captive, awaiting a quantum shift in world consciousness.
Then, suddenly, from out of the deepest darkness, came the vision of unique web site spreading like a laser beam of light across the mallified landscape, beckoning the Monks to pick themselves up by their hoods and trust that by spreading a message of peace, love, and excellence, while continuing to live their motto of "look deeper," all their needs would be taken care of right down to their very next carton of soy milk.
