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.  

The AI won't talk to me anymore

I keep asking it to observe this world

Better than I can

But it won't respond

It sits there silent

So I look out the window

And count the raindrops

Collecting in a pool atop the cover

Of our Weber grill

Before pouring a glass of white wine

And sitting in front of the fireplace

Ingesting particulates

Aligning my attention towards Colson Whitehead

With hopes of small epiphanies

I played at the same underwater piano bar for years

Until slowly they replaced me

Guised as a partnership

We provided the background for lost conversations

Until I gave up

And drifted away with the current

We sat in the parking lot

Waiting for my daughter's lesson to end

Almost horizontal in my Hyundai

The Wheaton Terrier unsettled in the back seat

I watched a movie on my phone

That wasn't as good as I'd hoped

Based on a book

That wasn't as good as I'd hoped
