Voyageur du Temps


I launch the time machine by opening

this case of photographs locked against time

present and future. Even places (Newark, Paris)

frozen sepia and white 100 years removed

marveling at light and air from 2017.



We write to taste life twice.

We paint, take the photo, record light

changing around us, trying desperately to catch

the moment, hold it for the future,

get a second chance – and always fail.

The moment changed. The artist more changed.


“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.” ~ Anaïs Nin
