Grief Glasses

Saturday, July 16, 2011
Justin Hackworth's 30 Strangers Exhibit last night was remarkable. I can't stop thinking about it. I drove home under the light of a very full and bright moon and was basking in the beauty of the entire evening.

But before you read it I have to tell you something:

What an INCREDIBLE evening. You really missed out. No, really. It was the most uplifting and insightful night I've had in....ages.

Can I say how hilarious Azucar was?
And how deeply moving NieNie?
And  how poignant Brooke Benton?
And the deep prose of Amy to my ears! {who doesn't update her blog}?

Yes, yes I can say. I'm serious here, folks. It was incredible. And don't tell anyone, but I think I am going to incorporate these women, these phenomenal essays, into a fundraising gala for A Good Grief. I have a vision.

I'll be sharing photos from the evening in the coming week. What an honor to be in the presence of such creative genius and sheer greatness. Mothers rule. So do good photographers.

Would you like to read the essay I wrote? I would like you to. Please visit A GOOD GRIEF and partake.
