"you look at somebody like walt whitman who wrote, wrote in his writing… i young poet, young poet who will exist a hundred years from now, i am writing for you. i am thinking about you as i’m looking at this river. i’m thinking about you, young poet not even born, as i’m looking at the sky, and our ancestors in that way thought of us, and we in kind can think of them, and it keeps the whole… it keeps everything rolling."

the thing is, my stepfather was always better to me than my own father ever was. and so this really is heartbreaking.

i just found out my wonderful stepfather has advanced prostate cancer. i cried for about 45 minutes, and even my little cat oliver came to comfort me, along with vince. it’s hard to know how to proceed with my day now that i’ve been delivered this news. i’ve never had anyone close to me go through an ordeal like this. one part of me is very sad at the thought of us losing him, another part is saying “this is life.” i just hope he & my mother won’t have to suffer too much.

"life isn’t some vertical or horizontal line. um… you have your own interior world, and it’s not neat. therefore the importance and the beauty of music, sound, noise… when you go outside and walk on the street you’re hearing traffic, you’re hearing people talking, children laughing, birds chirping, someone going by with a boom box, hundreds of different sounds. all of these things are potentially beautiful. the eye sees a bit of the sky, the empire state building, the street, your feet as they’re walking, the texture of your skin. layer after layer after layer of simple human existence. and we feel, and sense, and see things simultaneously. you know, you’re walking through the interior of your own mind, which is another whole jungle."

been thinking about it a lot, and i’ve decided i’m going back to storytelling & creating characters with photography. even if it’s not literal & totally obvious to the viewer that there’s a story, i want to FEEL that there is, and shoot everything with that story in mind. i get so lost when there’s no story… i don’t know what to have the model do, or what location to use, or how to style it… i like when the styling becomes more like wardrobe in a way. i like the model to embody a character, and to emote as that character. that and portraiture; where the character is already before me, and i have to capture it. this is what i really like.
