I haven’t posted in a while, and for that I apologize. I have been happily consumed with my first love, which is writing. Although photography is a deep passion of mine, I have been a writer since I was eight and turned in a fourteen-page, typewritten draft of a story to my third-grade teacher, Mrs. Gibbs, when everyone else was struggling to get a page written. She gave me a gold folder to keep my stories in, and I have it to this day. I have listened to countless books on tape on my long drive into work, including a few volumes of short stories including a brilliant anthology entitled Florida, by Lauren Groff. I highly recommend it.
In reading all of these stories, I was bitten hard by the writing bug. In the last few weeks, I have written a longer one and a shorter one, and I have submitted the shorter one for publication in a few journals and magazines. Now we wait…
The title of this blog post is perhaps a bit melodramatic. It is my intention that the new posts will be a bit more literary, and in most cases less (directly) personally confessional. I have always been inspired by my photographs, which is the purpose of this blog, and so this is a natural next step. You will see photographs that you seen before, but hopefully the new narratives will give them a new perspective.
