no, you were the reason
I kept my light on late into the night
turning all those pages, searching for you everywhere.

Literature is invention. Fiction is fiction. To call a story a true story is an insult to both art and truth. Every great writer is a great deceiver.

Isn’t that a beautiful cowl captured at sunset on the beach? I adore taking pictures at sunset on the ocean. It is just gorgeous. You really only have about 10 minutes, maybe 10 minutes, when you get this perfect, perfect light we call magic light. But it’s the best 10 minutes of the whole shoot.
