My family

I don’t often write in this space : usually I post pictures directly from my camera phone and then move on. I don’t even know if anyone reads this – and that is fine with me. This is something I do for myself and when work is slow or life is depressing I have something to look at that cheers me up.

Other people use the internet for p*rN and Kittens and laughing babies. I use it as a coping mechanism.

About 12 years ago I found a chat board from KYSR 98.7 fm in LA. through them there were chat boards “Drunkjack.com and Jamiewhite.com”. This is how I found Bonnie and Isabel,Mikey, Cami, Angela, Jack, Pearl, Veronica and more. Even Phaedra and Sam were on here. That’s when I discovered the therapeutic qualities of chatting with folks through the day and being able to read responses at my leisure.

The station changed format and ChatBoards are harder to find that have meaning now that the entire world is enraptured with FaceBook and we have Twitter for quick “shout outs”. But I have been blogging for 6.5 years and loving it. I started out with “Homeless in LA” and have ghost written a few others and then made this one for Darla so she can be seen by my family and also see herself grow up when she is older.

Not all of the photos are in focus. Not all of them are editorial and tell a story. They are just pictures of her, and me and her sisters and her family.

Family means a lot to me. I have had a couple of them in my life and I pick and choose who I want to publicly admit being related to ( I am terrible like that) .

So enjoy my family. I do. When I need a little extra love – like I did last weekend – I will drive 12 hours to get to my Grandma’s arms and back home again – because family is life.

Enjoy mine. I do.
