• Once I lay on the grass and looked upward
To feel myself redeemed into
That world which had no meaning but itself,
As I, lying there, had only the present, no future or past.
- Robert Penn Warren, from “Another Dimension,” Rumor Verified: Poems 1979-1980 (Random House, 1981) •• I don't mean to be spastic, but I'm always deleting these "self portraits." I'm slowly trying to get better at photographing people & more often than not, i'm the only willing participant.
