Beautifully written. This is raw truth. Honest, passionate and sensitive. You're exposing yourself fully and I thank you for trusting us.
The idea of kissing with eyes open stirs up many feelings.
The image with your eyes open drags me into your very personal view. I don't feel like just an observer. Tied together with the story of your lover and friend who tragically lost his life I was moved to tears.
I'm currently sitting in a doctors office and you moved me to tears!

Larry, this project is very thought provoking. Rather like looking at a photo album, I suppose. Thanks for sharing it ahead of the program. M

Thanks so much for posting this, it was lovely to read. I commend you for being so open and vulnerable. One piece of feedback I would give you is to really investigate what you're interested in saying about your life. How do your past experiences inform how you live today and how you see the world? How can the be captured through a photograph or self-portrait? Your images still feel very safe, I want you to try changing the environment, lighting, use the tools and knowledge I know you have to create something really unique to you. I love the idea of creating a memoir and this long form dialogue works well, feel free to continue doing it. Don't worry too much about creating a statement to be 200 words, focus more on writing one or two sentences that encapsulate what you are trying to say to the world.

I meant to reply to this before, but I like the writing with the images - it gives them more context for me, makes them more powerful. Personal favorite is the first 😁
