Shocked and elated to come home to my (September 2016) Issue 489 of The Sun magazine, who incredibly selected a photograph of mine for publication last autumn and now it’s really real! What a wondrous belated birthday gift.
I hope to one day publish a poem or two with The Sun, but photography is another great love of mine. I took this particular photograph, “Head South,” in October of 2010, nearly six years ago from today while standing in a backyard in Kissimmee. I was new to the Orlando area then, and I had no idea where life would take me. Thank you to Rachel Elliott and the talented editorial team in Chapel Hill, and thank you for pairing my photograph with Claire Halliday’s unique essay, “The Possible Universe.” I am so honored to be a part of this amazing publication.
PS: Stay tuned for hopefully more exciting news!
