Hail Mary

CHO marathon
Watched Charlottesville marathon runners in their twenty-first mile course down Woolen Mills Road Saturday. I try to avoid sport similies, metaphors and analogies, they are verbal shorthand, they cheapen speech. (I’ve recently received a lot of schooling on the Creed of Golf so I have little appetite for hearing sports=life.)

I admire the grit of marathon runners, their persistence. One foot in front of the other. To the end.

I stumbled off the track to success in 1968, started chasing shadows that summer. Since then, In addition to farm-laborer and newspaper photographer my occupational incarnations include dishwasher, janitor, retail photo clerk, plumber, HVAC repairman, auto mechanic, CAT scan technologist, computer worker and politico (whatever it takes to buy a camera.) I am on the road to understanding black and white photography.
