"The Best of Me"

Depression for me is like the mean girl in high school who bullies you. You don't know where or when she's gonna sneak up on you, you just know she’s there. And at some point you're gonna be humiliated - taken down.

You'd think by 45 I'd be able to spot it coming but it still takes me by surprise every time. It's only in retrospect that I can see how it came up, how it started and how long it's been running underneath the current.

Last September I went down and bottomed out. Inertia. …. no motion at all …..

The following are images from my recovery. Using a tripod and a remote I forced myself to really look at who I am and what I saw.

The whole project and complete statement can be viewed on my blog:
