Thank You for 2009

I used to think I could manufacture time out of thin air. Why shouldn’t I be able to indulge every single one of my creative interests and curiosities — all at the same time? If the Memoir Project has taught me one thing, it’s that when bringing a new endeavor on board, it is best for both my sanity and the quality of my work, that I put at least one other interest on hold (at least!). So this year, with the MFA‘s monthly deadlines, it was blogging time that slid down a few notches on my priority list. I want to say a warm thank you for sticking with me — in spite of the irregularity of my posts– and sending encouraging emails and posting comments. Each one has been a heart-warmer.

Wishing you a Happy New Year in 2010!

Me, at 14. Portrait by my father, self-taught black-and-white photographer and Ansel Adams aficionado.

      Thanks for visiting, snydeen! My father didn’t believe in color photography. His attention to mastering black-and-white was certainly an inspiration. I wonder what he would do today, with the disappearance of film format. … We’ll never know. Someday, someday I would like to register for a b/w photo class and have unlimited access to a dark room so that I could play with any number of the hundreds (thousands?) of negatives of his which are now in my care.
