Images form words, words form thoughts and paragraphs, which eventually form stories. Some of those stories I keep to share with friends, on a quiet night with a bottle of wine. Others I store away carefully, to hopefully share with my children and grandchildren someday. And then there are those stories that I can’t suppress. Those are the stories about the people and places that inspire me and whose images stay branded in my mind. Those are the stories for now, for this moment and time.
