My name is Francis Josef C. Gasgonia, I’m an Environmental Planner (Urban and Regional Planning), Sociologist, Cartographer, Curator, and Board/ Card Game Designer. Welcome to my blog, this was created as a journal for my thoughts and wanderings about life, philosophy, adventure, Kali, and of course all about the Boondocks and Cities. I hope you enjoy what you read, and feel free to share or violently react to whatever I muse about.
Thank you and looking forward to engaging with you.
All the best!
