Kisses are among the vehicles I would use if I were not able to make pictures.

For me, pictures provide a means of holding, intensely, a moment of communication between one human and another.

And what is the deepest and widest you can travel? It’s to come back to where you already are. And I saw my own circumnavigation of the Earth, in my mind’s eye, and I realized in that moment that nothing would be more dear to me than where I already was. And, in fact, to anyone else on Earth, where I was- Danville, Virginia- was already as strange and as mysterious as though one of us had arrived in New Guinea.
