it would be quite ridiculous for me to imitate the style of Seamus Heaney, I
agree with him that writing poetry is about “putting feelings into words”.
Same goes for photography.
Photography makes me see colors differently and is very bad for my driving.
I didn’t start writing/photographing seriously
until the past few years. Being the offspring of an artist and a missile designer made
me feel split-brained while growing up. I think I have finally found the balance, and life
is about seeking what you can be passionate about - finding your own magic number, whatever
that may be, and riding it for a while.
So, what is your number?
