Winifred  used to make boxes and introduced me to Joseph Cornell, she was separated from her husband, Jeff, both  friends of mine, and while I was in art school she got a new position at an Art Museum in Los Angeles. Shortly after moving and being employed in her new position she died in an an automobile accident, I do not know the details.

Look at these next two  couples,  ask  yourself : What is their relationship to each other? What are the words  (if any), passing   ((or not being spoken) between them.

Could I have been hiding from you all these years?  I was really here behind this camera just waiting to smile, but  forgot, or disremembered, or or did things I wish I had not done and could go back and redo and then I realize or rationalize no matter what it would have all come out the same. To not agree is to end up being unhappy.
