Short Story Number One Thousand Four Hundred and Eighty Seven
She needs her books. She needs her music. And she needs you, but you’ve already disappeared. You’ve already gone for good and you’re never coming back and that’s not how it should end.
Nude Woman Reading. Philippe de Rougemont (French, 1891-1965). Oil on canvas.
Although he was French-born, De Rougemont created the majority of his works from his studio in Stokholm, Sweden. His skill for capturing the beauty of the female form in oils made him a popular artist in his own lifetime and beyond.
Show me a hero, and I’ll write you a tragedy.
It’s been estimated that as many as 880 billion photos will be taken by the close of this year. I’m not quite sure how that statistic could ever be properly calculated, but I think it’s safe to say that with the rise of the digital medium, human beings are taking a s**tload more pictures than ever before.
With all those photos being taken, chances are you and I have at one point accidentally wandered into someone else’s frame. It’s likely, however, that you’ll never really know you’ve photo-bombed someones shot. That’s why I was surprised by a Twitter message that I received out of the blue from a photographer I’ve never met.
Prince Fielder on the c over of ESPN Magazine “The Body Issue:”
“You don’t have to look like an Under Armour mannequin to be an athlete,” says Fielder in the issue. “Just because you’re big doesn’t mean you can’t be an athlete. And just because you work out doesn’t mean you’re going to have a 12-pack. I work out to make sure I can do my job to the best of my ability. Other than that, I’m not going up there trying to be a fitness model.”
