Paving the way for adventure, taking us to new heights, new discoveries, another off road journey is the VANDEYK Contemporary Cycles of Germany. “The bicycles are immaculately handcrafted in the smallest detail and strictly limited.” A cool, crisp landscape carved out of the mountainside lays the foundation for a short film titled ‘Machine for Riding’ featuring such bicycles in collaboration with Christopher Kippenberger. Nature wraps itself around the bearded rider, fully geared up for a long day on a long trail. And from way up here everything is put into perspective, as if on top of the world, away from it all, just you and your bike.


Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
