You write stories of love into places and then it so often turns to pain. These places that have held me and the people I love become places of loss, black holes, places I never want to see again. Still I return. Or simply find myself there, and I have to rewrite it all once more, over the top of what exists already. But the photographs remain, loops in time, their sadnesses the price of love. 1
