Longer version

Charlie Walks is the fictional story of a machine learning engineer/computer programmer who loves walks and wants to be a writer.

More specifically...

Charlie's a funambulist, a tightrope walker, walking between head and heart between city and nature between a good path and a real path a known path and his own between being a hider and being a seeker between life and death living and dying one option and another another another.

The trick is, there's always more than two options.

That's where XK-1 comes in. Charlie's secret project. A computer program that shows you what you're supposed to see but can't imagine.

A machine learning engineer at the biggest technology company in the world who wants to be a writer.

Writing letters to his nephew Pauly.

Stories from his past from his present from loving from longing from wandering from walking, step by step creating his own story.
