'Poet...priest of nothing... legend...'
This was her response when Stevie Nicks was asked about the men in her life. These lyrics are from one of my favorite songs, Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You.
Last Sunday I drove around for hours taking pictures, appreciating the fog that was lingering all morning.
I didn't know my friend was clinging to life and would take his last breath days later.
He was a great friend. We battled the bullshit of this world, together. We would check in on each other everytime we realized life was getting too busy.
He hadn't check in.
I hadn't check in.
I'm so so sorry.
I feel like there's nowhere to put my grief. So I've been putting it into my photos.
It's quiet there.
There's is a sense of peace.
This is where I can let this pain float away & ease my broken heart.
