I had the highest honor of getting to read aloud Neil’s amazing poem “For Loss of Words” There are no words to describe what an incredible collaboration this was for me. Thank you Neil…so much!! 😀
FOR LOSS OF WORDS is about love, loss, the art of photography and a million words. Read by an amazing woman and voice talent, Christina Gregory (formerly Brownlee), it is one of my most memorable works owing to the many colorful (and, at times, painful) backstories behind its writing and post publishing.

with gray-streaked butterflies in olden seas of remembrance.

What is it worth – this picture,
your tender dedication…
