I’m in the middle of re-editing the video for my China photo book Kickstarter project.

That’s a sentence I kind of want to slap myself for uttering.  Yet, as I sift through hundreds of unseen images, I think this is how it was supposed to be.  Both time and editing skills have increased, and I’m able to see these images in a new light, with some distance and through new eyes.  If you see this, please consider supporting and/or spreading the word.  I am overwhelmed with my desire, my need, to share this with the world.  (Again, kind of want to slap myself.  Still true.)

Sometimes the ache to return is almost unbearable.  But you can’t go back, only forward, possibly returning at a different angle, never re-creating.  Creating, it’s something I need to do more of.  This 9-5, this compound life, these things are slow ruin.
This is the bedroom of the couple who let Avy and I stay in their home in Yao Village, a small community north of Guangzhou (?), China.  I meant to paint it someday, but it may be fine just as it is. View high resolution
