looking back

A publisher asked me to write a book about my art.  They paid me an advance and everything.

Never calling myself an author, artist, or photographer, you can imagine how honored, elated and terrified, I was for being called out on all three.

Unfortunately … after a full year, 11,000 words, 500 photos and 16 forced projects, the book was published and I didn’t get to pick the cover.

I’ll know better next time.

At one point in our lives we’ve all said …

“keep moving forward and don’t look back.”

What if we take the gray roads?  Can we look back then?

“The road to enlightenment is long and difficult, and you should try not to forget snacks and magazines.”  Anne Lamott
