We Meet

since meeting mr cowboy

i have observed some photography

other than my nude work

that i think is symbolic

or at least gestural

or suggestive

about where i am in my life.

to replay the whole story a bit:

i was divorced in 2007

the demise of that marriage

began in 2005.

we were together ten years.

my confidence re: dating was nill.

prior i was with and married to the father of my kids.

eighteen years.

sometimes when i think of it as twenty eight years all told.

i think – wow, that is a lot of years wasted.

not that those years didn’t have their positives.

they did.

once my second marriage ended

my life was pretty complicated.

still had children at home.

i emotionally spiralled.

lost some time.

lost some soul.

definitely lost me.

in 2009 i relocated.

some not so good things about that move

and some good things.

the good included the purchase of this home

the space and place, the four walls and windows of which all of you know so well.

There was one pervasive bad.

i began collecting dating stories.

forward to the fall of 2013.

my mr cowboy.

our first meet

was spontaneous.

a phone call,  our 3rd call perhaps?

turned into

are you free this evening?

it was a few days before my birthday

my birthday was supposed to be our first date.

images.

solo pear.

pending pair.

dual chairs.

one empty.

by design ?

not sure

but to me

when i saw it

after taking it

i thought

hmmmmm.

i felt like i was setting a stage.

come sit with me.

i already had an immediate phone like with this guy

i loved how he first reached out to me

he actually read my online dating profile.

i was really excited to meet him.

i felt pretty and sexy

even with the holy shit

throw something on

brush my hair

and GO.

i had like 20 minutes to do that and get there.

  1. Didn’t put the two chairs together until you told the story. There is always more to a AN shot then meets the naked eye. Like that naked with AN… Ok I wouldn’t quite my day job.
    Have to admit the second chair is pretty powerful.
