17-06-02 I’m Back?

It’s been a long time…lots of stuff going on. Work (and the lack thereof), family, health, anxiety, depression, joy, and tension, transitions and transitioning, working it out and moving on. Broken Light Collective

I have spent a lot of time working on the first expression of my new book: “Trans_Lucent v 1.0”.  It is both a work in progress and a complete work. I have made 8 demo copies but… Naturally I am totally ambivalent about it.

Lots of time on the road, back and forth to Boston, went to NOLA for Jazz Fest, a not entirely successful trip down memory lane. You really can’t recreate the moments of your life and you shouldn’t make the mistake of trying. Have to remember to go and create anew. NOLA brought up lots of memories of the dead.

Took a wonderful class taught by Liam Cunningham at ICP.

Went to the Oaxaca Coast and Mexico City. It is good to be on the right side of Trump’s fantasy wall and was hard for us to return.

Spending lots of time on Cape Cod working on my parent’s place, trying to get it ship shape for the future.

Worked as a Teaching Assistant in ICP Community Partnership. Some of the most rewarding time I have spent in years.

I may actually have made some new friends! That doesn’t happen often.

Over the next few posts (which I hope will come at least every three days or so) I will be posting some of what I have been shooting.

I hope you all are well.

Let’s start old school in Black and White.

  1. How’s your mom? (Been meaning to text this question for several days. Feel free to respond by text.)

    I’ve enjoyed the pics from Wellfleet. A local place has Wellfleet oysters. I always order them.

    I still love the pic of the sand and water.

    I want a copy of the new book when available.

    I still owe you a NYPL pitch to use, but I think we should approach it as a team. I’d like for you to take some of the program to talk about the river and why the lighthouse speaks to you. You don’t have to be too sappy or let your guard down. I’ll do enough of that for us both. Ha. What do you think? (I’ve really enhanced my speaking cred this year and believe that will help with this pitch. I waited to get some beefier stuff. Please look for this shortly, and we can strategize.)

    Please hug K from me and tell A I’m always in his corner.
