LOOKING UP IN SPOKANE
Downtown yesterday, looking up and snapping pictures with a digital camera that has been mostly collecting dust for two years. It was a retirement gift from MacKay Manufacturing where I worked the last 16 years of my working life. A fine place to work. A good crew and good owners and management. Inspired by Philip Roth, I seem to be working back into my creative self. Several poems, three short stories and now some photography within 60 some days. Mainly, I'm giving myself permission not to be perfect. That opens up the floodgates. Before, I always had to be Shakespeare, T. S. Eliot, Renoir or Edward Steichen.
