WFMU-FM 91.1/Jersey City, NJ; 90.1/Hudson Valley, NY

i just received the prints from my New Orleans shoot
i am finding them so deeply moving and intimate
some two, three and four image sequences
are perfect in juxtaposition and in context and in composition

but, i am hopelessly depressed - heartbroken even
the shots are boldly blurry, distorted and obtuse
wholly as intended - as close to perfection as i've ever realized

but who will understand?
the first viewer declared
"you take shots of anything, huh?"

i could die
i could cry
i could quit

can i take a juried rejection
or critical misinterpretation
or the simplistic conclusions of untrained?

if they live in only my world
do they live?
