It's been too long and I've neglected this blog. I've typed a few things here, but then decided I didn't like them, there was no flow, or somesuch verbal ailment that neccesatated the need to delte.

I helped a friend yesterday. I got my first "gig" as a "freelance" writer, I guess you could call it. I wrote a biography that is posted on his website. I've known Brian since I think second grade. We went to school together. My mom and I bumped into he and him and his mom one day at a bakery. The two moms started talking and before I knew I had a someone to walk home from school with. My father, as a pastor, had his office at home so he was there when we got home from school. Long story short, we became pretty good friends and, as is often the case, the pastor's family moves away. We did our best to keep in contact, but like all things we kind of drifted apart.

Our mothers kept in contact more regualarly than we did. I was able to "keep tabs" on Brian that way.

Brian is a photographer and I think I had something to do with that fact. Brian and his parents came and visited us one summer when we lived in Accident, MD. At the time, I myself, was an "ameteur" photographer, and I mean that in every sense of the word, but I had taken a picture of a flower, a Jack-in-the-Pulpit and submitted it to a photography competition at the county fair. It got a pretty blue ribbon, I think, if i remember correctly, it was tied as "best in show," but I could be wrong about that.

Brian saw that and a light went on in his head. He got reall intersted in taking pictures. He went to school near Atlanta and learned how to take proper pictures. He is an architecture photographer. I was just looking at his website and the pictures he takes are amazing. He really does have the "eye."

Check him out.
