Gay Quaker writer, editor and photographer, happy with my helpmate Jim.

I started taking pictures back in fifth grade, using a little Kodak Brownie. I still have the little wood-bound photo album carefully mounted and labeled black and white photos.


Kodak Brownie Scrapbook

When I look at these pictures now, I am first amused and then smitten by memory. So strange that one can travel in time so easily.

Ages later, in the late 1980s, using an old Nikon I bought from a friend, I took a darkroom course. (You know, where you actually develop film in baths of chemicals and mess with burning and dodging?)

Here is my best image from that era, one of a gorgeous, mysterious stranger (still my hubby years later).


Jim

Jim and I became a couple in 1985, were married under the care of our Quaker Meeting in 1994, and got legal in Massachusetts on July 19, 2011.
