Solo Artist.

Since the writing of my last few posts my iMac’s hard drive has failed and I’ve lost 11 years worth of my photography. For the time being, the only photos I have are the ones that exist on this blog which is both good and bad news; at least I have something. With any hope an Apple tech will be able to retrieve my data.

In other more exciting news, my poetry and photography has been published in Northern Public Affairs magazine. On a whim, back in January, I submitted a collection of my work in hopes that I might have a chance at publication, and I was happily surprised to find that was the case. In fact, NPA awarded me with an Emerging Northern Writers and Artists Fund award, which came as such a shock. It feels good to do something solo and not affiliated with a job or school related. Subscribe to Northern Public Affairs.

Enjoy the photos, all taken with my new iPhone SE.

‘Til next time.

  1. Congratulations on the awards. Well-deserved. Bummer about the pictures. Take the good with the bad. Might be worthwhile to invest in an external back-up drive. Never know when a hard drive could crash and burn.

  2. Thanks Ryan 🙂 I was so happy to have gotten that email from the editors. And yes, I will be purchasing a new external to back up my work this time. The funny thing about it is that I was in the process of backing up my iMac to an external when it decided to shut down on me. Nothing managed to get transferred over. I’m not losing all hope, my busted drive is going to be sent out for data retrieval. Where I live there’s no one available for that type of work.

Say anything.
