First, I get to work to find out that a couple of the pictures I had left with Dad got submitted to the local paper ended up being one of the two published to cover the Ultimate Five Run in Dyersburg, TN, which was a run benefiting Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society in conjunction with the Boss Hoss Annual Rally got published on page 10 of the local paper in monday’s State Gazette with another photo by my dearly beloved. Wow. I’m now a published (if uncredited, silly paper…) photographer.
Then I’m going through my emails, and Randy Burns, a local artist in Dyersburg whom I met, for the second time, over the past weekend at a book sale in the Dyersburg public library, had left me a wonderful comment on my Terrawolf site. Now I know this may not seem like much on the surface, but if you take a few minutes to browse over to his site, you’ll see the incredible work he does. The checkout desk of the Dyersburg Library has several of his pieces behind the counter on their walls, including one on loan from my Dad, and I cannot tell you how much I wish I had a gift for raw creation like that. I may be good behind a camera, but cameras record… a painter creates. So having a complement from a talented creator like him just made my day 🙂 And he’s a spot-on nice guy, too.
I’ll have to find myself the pdf of the race article a bit later so I can repost myself :=) And I’m behiond on a few emails, so it may be a day or so before I get back here… be well, my adoring fans :=) All 3 of you 🙂
