About

Composition from journals kept 1976-1978. Moving Kodak snapshots taken during travels abroad and while at work back home; random glimpses of sites seen and persons visited, fragments of afternoon reveries and night dream visions with garrulous non-stop description of education – in family, at school, while ill – trying to make sense of it all. "The dark wood encountered in the middle of life's journey." – Dante This is the composition of material from my ongoing film diaries.
