back home

I made this photo of Natalie Merchant right after I finished studying for, and taking, my mid-term exam in Organic Chemistry.

I remember taking the long drive through the fields of Ohio just to get to the concert, and the sounds of the band warming up just flowed out of the gymnasium as I arrived.

When I look back, it was a long drive to take just to see a concert - and I don't make such pilgrimmages these days. In this sense, photos are like journal entries in my life. They remind me of places I've been or things I've done. It surprises me still that I had the will and the want at such an early age.
