Long time no see
So we’re having a fine brunch and my visiting friend says I never update my journal.
And he’s right.
I’ve been awful remiss.
Then just yesterday I read an interview with Jeff Harris, a fellow that has been taking a photo of his life for the past 10 years.
His site was one of the biggest inspirations for me to start playing with a camera. As he faces cancer, he reflects on the past decade and his work.
“Even the repetition makes it interesting.” he says.
And I remember that’s one of the things I got out of all this — I was always hoping to see patterns emerge from my own life through these photos.
But more than that, I wanted to share the days with my friends and family.
Then things got muddled somehow. Self imposed deadlines, comment guilt, forlorn with my own visual repetition, wondering if I was thinking too much. This, that, and the other thing.
It just wasn’t simple.
Yeah, I’m still around.
And things are well outside of the screen!
Just trying to stay outta trouble.
Sleeves rolled up.
Tipping my hat whenever possible.
Trying to make sense of it all and keepin’ my eye out for patterns.
