Self-portrait.
I took this about a year ago in a hotel room somewhere...can’t remember where. Loneliness was my brother that night as he sometimes is. I do remember that.
Posting this here today as a beginning - a new series telling my story through words and images.
Time does heal old wounds but not all of them. Sometimes it takes work and searching the deep dark places to find healing. I’m still in that process. Maybe just beginning it really, but that’s okay. I’m not on the clock with this. It can take as long as it needs and it’s actually much better now than it was. I’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel but hoping it isn’t a train. I know others have been there and I’m sharing this for them.
As I tell this story I’ll use this hash tag, #theroadlestravels. Follow along and share if you find it helpful.
Thanks.

Fascinating article in the NYTimes about soccer and the Quechuan language...and of course, so much more. Inspired me to share some of my favorite portraits of Quechuan people I've photographed over the years in Cusco, Peru and in the mountains of Ecuador.
From the article: "Luis Soto is narrating Peru’s first appearance at the World Cup since 1982 in his native language, Quechua, the latest move to keep a fading oral tradition alive.

By Raúl Vilchis - NYTimes:

Soto had to clear a basic hurdle: finding a term for “soccer ball.” Quechua was developed by the ancient Incas, and the only word for ball that he knew was used in Cusco referred to a sphere made from pieces of llama neck leather and used in religious ceremonies. “The term didn’t exist,” he said, “so we had to adapt.” After canvassing local players, Soto settled on “qara q’ompo,” which means leather ball, or sphere. It is one of about 500 terms and phrases he has compiled over the last decade into what is probably the world’s only Quechua soccer dictionary. He shares it freely with anyone who is interested." @nytimes #peru #ecuador #portraits #bwportrait #faces #quechua @blackandwhite_art #artofportraits #cusco

A body on fire can sustain its own flame for a long time. Your body fat (which starts leaking once your dermis cracks) can serve as a fuel source for the fire. Clothing can act like a wick and feed the fat into the flame. Under these circumstances, a body can continue to burn for up to seven hours.
