By which I mean not a “good” writer or a “bad” writer but simply a writer, a person whose most absorbed and passionate hours are spent arranging words on pieces of paper…I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means….What is going on in these pictures in my mind?
