Hello, and this is to thank everyone for all of the recent <fav>s.  I believe I've responded to all the kind comments, but with the <fav>s it's been 'hit and miss'.  However:  never -- nay, not even for a minute -- doubt my gratitude:  for each and every one I'm truly grateful!

I've been working on a manuscript:  a collection of short poems, all of them more or less in the form I call 'sonnetoid'.  It's the only conventional / classical form I 'practice' (even only approximately), compose one or two from time to time.  

No, not a pretty word, but therefor apt, since these poems are bastard sonnets:  in particular, I'm not keen for -- and don't comply with -- the strict end-rhyme schemes.  So I don't feel justified in calling them sonnets, purely.  By whatever name, though, they are (mostly) in the spirit of the Elizabethan / Shakespearean sonnet.

So now I'm collecting them, getting a sense for whether or not they might comprise a satisfying collection.  There are seventy of them, and just now the problem is deciding how to group / order them.  Bewildering.  Think of all the permutations of seventy items!  I dare say, you can't.  Certainly, I can't.  So I fling the sheaf of them over a shoulder, wander around re-collecting them, assess the new order's potential for tedium / surprise . . . fling them over the other shoulder . . .

:) thank you for the watch. I have to return cause I just love seeing your works. They would be great on any wall framed out. Your use of b/w and the smoking hot guys and the positions they are posed in. mmmm I could look at them with a smile all day long. ("") :hug:

Thank you, Gregg. Much appreciated.  :)

I hope to work with another of your photos soon. The
lighting on the most recent ones I saved has inspired me.

Thanks so much.  ~Ray

Thanks, Ray, and nice to hear from you.  

Your work is always so beautiful:  I recognize a piece of yours every time, and even just from the thumbnails -- you have a way with light and color that's all your own, so rich and vibrant.  (But you don't need me to tell you that!)  I would <fav> them all, but since your gallery exists, I guess that would be redundant. Some, like this one, though, strike me as masterpieces among masterpieces . . . 

And yes, I hope I might again be your 'raw material' -- VERY, VERY exciting and gratifying for me.

All best regards, 
gregg
