    Your photography and essays are captivating. I moved from one to the next searching for greater insight.
    Of course I was not aware of your background in Bishop. I only knew of a wonderful girl full of smiles and laughter and a keen sense of adventure. I never sensed the pain. I want to travel back in time and protect that little girl. Keep her safe, secure.
    The images, colors and lighting you have captured are spectacular. Your words deeply troubling at times while others are uplifting.
    You are a provocative woman, Tracy and I am extremely appreciative to know you.
    All the best to you,

      I just now saw this comment. Thank you so much for the kind words. I have always been a great actress on the stage of life and part of my “glee” in Chico was the fact I had finally escaped a piece of my past by being far away from that reality (at least in miles). Your wonderful smile, sense of humor and laugh popped right into my mind when I saw your name here. I hope that all in life has treated you well. Looks like it on FB! So glad to reconnect with you!

    I am working on a book with the working title “Yet trouble Came,” which comes to via the Book of Job, “Neither had I rest nor sleep, yet trouble came.” William Styron used a fuller version in his searing memoir “Darkness Visible.” It will be a memoir heavily laced with my experiences with depression (you know, the profound kind, that leaves a scorched earth behind, and lays waste to plans and hopes and dreams.

    But I soldier on as Jackie ‘O famously said…see my fb page and click on Veteran Voyages in “works at”) and you’ll know what I’m trying to create, but it has all come at a huge, monumental cost. I love Amy Ferris, and I applaud your effort this weekend. home was hellish for me too, but the carnage was emotional.

    I’ve had a good life though, but in deciding to do what I’ve decided to do, I am so isolated from so many (corporate) things that used to fill up my time, and of course I am a hairs-breadth away from being completely and utterly broke. frown.

    Soldier on Tracy…we’re in it together.

      Thanks so much Hugh. Your project sounds very interesting. Still catching my breath from the whirlwind weekend but plan to look up your FB page over the next few days. Best, Tracy

    Hi Tracy,
    I am amazed your photos are taken with an iPhone. You certainly have a gift for art.
    You are ahead of the game for this course on teaching as you already have a blog. I can see how this could be a nice forum for education. Take care,
