New Coordinates

In the end, even I myself became tired of my own prevarications over my career. In response to the predicatable-but-dull question "So, what do you do?" I have a new response. From now on I am no longer a Programmerbut (as in "I am a programmer, but..."). Henceforth, I photograph and write; write and photograph. Perhaps I code some software to pay the bills, but my raison d'etre no longer rests on CREATE TRIGGER or public class foo{}. Irrespective of the outcome of the interminable Google application process, I will exist to explore, create and record the beauty, frailty, jollity, horror, and desire of the world. A mere trifling, then (LOL); but far better than trifling with my time, as I was doing until two days ago.

I am grateful to all those many people who have harangued me over the last few years to quit farting about and do What I Should Be Doing: creating.

He who desires but acts not, breeds pestilence. - William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell.
