My Blog - Inspired By My Pictures

Years ago I heard the advice, "Don't take pictures while on vacation, just focus on the experience."  This turned out to be terrible guidance for me.  In my late 30s I started taking more pictures.  This activity helps to cement memories that would otherwise be lost whether on vacation or just going somewhere on the weekend.  In this blog I share the memories and stories inspired by my pictures.  

My skin and hotel room smell like smoke

When I woke I found ash on my pillow

Remnants of the evening from my hair

Last night I sat in front of the fire

And let the white haze drift over me

I lived in it until my eyes burned

Then stepped back to rub away the irritation

Before swimming right back into it

I circled the truth

And found an empty world

Just a dark attic

Filled with lost dreams

And memories that were never real

Merely haircuts

That took years off my life

My new glasses

Encourage me

To open my eyes
