IS NO POST A GOOD POST?
Sorry I haven't posted lately. I was almost shocked to see it's been nearly two weeks—though I hadn't realized the gap was anything like that long. Time got away from me, I guess. And while I'd like to claim I've been working at a breakneck pace, leading a life of frantic importance and creative productivity, the truth is more mundane, more prodigal than profitable. I haven't been lazing around, but I haven't accomplished much, either.
The fact is, I can't offer a clue as to what has so occupied my hours during these dozen intervening days that I somehow failed to put up a single photo accompanied by a dribble of shaky prose.
Nevertheless, I have been making a few photographs—"capturing images" as we digitally reformed say nowadays, as if our Nikon-toting patrols were akin to skulking sorties intent on live-trapping feral cats. These captured images are, admittedly, rather prosaic…though in my mind, that's often part of their appeal. The gone-to-seed dandelion above being a prime example. Pretty, even charming, but in a wholly ordinary sort of way.
If less is more, then today's offering is at least something, and tomorrow's might well exceed that standard—though it may not come until the day after—but for now I must rush off for reasons that momentarily escape me. In closing, might I say I do believe I'm a bit too harried? In an ambiguous, dissipated, loopy sort of way, of course. Or as a friend once admitted of himself…perhaps my insanity is finally catching up.
