I’m not biased at all.
My niece, Cierra, was in a play put on by the Ypsilanti Youth Theatre (The Final Frontier. It was complete chaos, making it perfect for children.) She played a photon named Ped and a Darlek (no, not a Dalek, a Darlek). The Darlek pictures didn’t work at all, but the photon ones are pretty funny.
I hope she does more, she is a natural.
She’s graduating high school in a month.
I’m not even going to try to explain. Ok, yes I am, it’s been a crazy 3 months of starting a course of web development classes and I have taken almost no pictures at all. But. I have the summer off before diving back in so we will see how it goes. I do have a few digital photos though and a roll of film riding around in my purse (which I might someday have time to get developed).
He insisted on having his picture taken with the headphones. I don’t know why. And yes. Green hair. I was so proud I could barely spit the words out.

On the other hand. This is one of my favorite quotes about love, it’s from a piece I heard many years ago on NPR, it was a conversation between Matthew Broderick and the playwright, Wendy Wasserstein. They were talking about broken hearts and Wasserstein said this at the end: “I do find the thought that two people can fall in love really humane. I remember, when I was writing The Sisters Rosensweig, that was my thought that here was this woman who was all closed up, and someone comes into her life and that she- It just seemed terrible human-” I love that thought, that love is humane.
When I was in junior high or high school, my dad was going to teach me to develop film. I never got beyond the winding-film-onto-the-reel stage, winding 35mm on is hard (120 is much easier). If you don’t get it right, you get unusable frames. Unless….
