Evolution of a cat photo. 

Late fall. The air cooled for a few weeks. We left the windows open. Peals of laughter from the playground across the street. Horns far off. Lily took to sitting at the window in the warm breeze. I’d drink coffee in the morning and take her photo. Hard not to when she’s like that, limned in gold. I bought her a contraption… Read more →

My Week in Media

This week marked the start of 202020, a bootcamp-like film program at Stony Brook Southampton.   For 20 days I’m happily immersed in all things film production.

The show was great, as was the talk back that was led by Ian Wooldridge (Dean of the British American Drama Academy) and Joe Mydell (a former teacher of mine from BADA who played Casca in this production.)… Read more →

A Visit to the Green Cabin.

It’s the one year anniversary of The Green Cabin Year. Today Jake and I made a visit back to the farm to celebrate. Everything was just as we left it in December,  except this time around the trees wore bright green halos and the robins were out in force. We laid on a blanket and had a picnic of wine, cheese,… Read more →
