Dear Photograph,I was stationed in the Army in Germany in 1971 through 1974. A friend and I took a leave to visit Paris, London and Ireland. Forty years later, I returned to Paris for another epic adventure only this time with my wife in hand. The crowd may have changed but the beautiful Notre Dame Cathedral and my spirit remain the same.Tom

_this was the inicial title of the bestseller extremely loud and incredibly close. impossible not to be hypnotized by the constrasting flourishes. i rather prefer this option than the final one.

ADAM'S REEF: Here’s what our parents never taught us: 


You will stay up on your rooftop until sunlight peels away the husk of the moon,
chainsmoking cigarettes and reading Baudelaire, and
you will learn that you only ever want to fall in love with someone
who will stay up to watch the sun rise with you.

You will fall in love with train rides,…

Dear Photograph,
Thirty years ago, I held on tight to my Dad’s strong back and swam around and around with him in our horse trough pool.  Time has passed so quickly and as I stand here and watch my own kids swimming in the same pool. I wish I could stop time altogether, then my Dad won’t be sick and my kids won’t grow older. It’s all bittersweet, and the overwhelming feeling of such great love takes hold of me…and just like that, there I am back in the swirling water with my Dad…happy and safe and small.
