Anyone who ever tells you that life is beautiful or amazing or whatever is a liar. They are in a temporary state of euphoria. While I appreciate their attempts to be uplifting, let's face it, life is okay once you add everything up. And that is fine by me. I have been forced to accept illness, suffering, the destruction of the natural world, even the knowledge of my eventual demise. I just want to be able to keep taking pictures of women, like Florida Mishlove, in the shower. Is it really too much to ask? Thanks in advance.
