Now

Our year in Europe feels a little like we ran away to join the circus. Two older adults who left it all behind, packed 2 suitcases and some equipment and off we went. And who better to run away with than this woman! Maggie has enriched my life in indescribable ways. She is wife, lover, friend, consigliere, healer, business partner, co-author, and many more things to me, but always a joy to behold.

Hardly a day goes by that I don’t see her doing something intimate, or lost in thought, or writing, gardening, preparing something delicious, engaging with local merchants, so many minor, ordinary moments which are lifted out of the ordinary by the joy that emanates from her. And when she looks at me I am smitten once again.

So I make countless images of her, and the story they tell is our story, of love in the time when the years are fleeting, but joy is to be had in every moment of consciousness, that Now is the only moment we have. And every photograph is Now!

    Thanks for this beautiful post. So many artists don’t want to get married or having kids, in order to be free, free of going anywhere, at any time without any constraints.
    I don’t agree with this idea. I think that having a family can help creating and producing and overall, it’s a way to be responsible, efficient and “connected” with the real life. I work with my wife as a commercial photographer but she is always on my side for personal work, giving some advices, etc.
    I am sure you are both lucky to be together. We can see it on your photographs !
