wow..that brought back to me all of the love and the sorrow. he was such a good little dog, i miss him tonight.
this book is some kind of journey...i so rarely revisit the past for extended periods. but i want it to be so special for them that i have to make myself go back to their time. jenn said today that i am doing this book for myself but am willing to share. and this is true. but i am mostly doing it for them...all of the saints, past present and future..they deserve to be seen for the beauty inside them...they deserve to tell us that they had a life that was valued.
i have realized i will never write a real published work because i will not have the freedom to make it the way that i want. it is not just the stories and my inadequate attempts to share them. it is the photographs in this book that so captures the reality of so many of them. there is no way anything like this could ever be published non privately...there are just far too many photo's and we all want to put in even more.
my goal is to have it done and the first copy printed by the pub night at the end of march. not sure if i can do it, but i will give it a good shot. i do have to chuckle tho...this may well be the most expensive small book ever printed..oh well, most of us at saints still want to buy one.
sorry, i haven't been blogging much...but i think the book will be so much more better to show how wonderful these guys really are.
