Thanks! I haven't taken one of these hold-the-camera-at-arm's-length shots in a while, but the setting and light seemed to call for the attempt.

Good lord charlie, how much weight have you lost? Maybe it's the angle but I don't know that I would have been sure that was you if i hadn't known it was you. great photo!

I think it's mostly the angle. I've lost a little weight, both due to stress and the fact that I took a break from the steroids for asthma and allergies. And I've redistributed some of what I still have, I like to think, from getting in slightly better shape. But I'm still wearing the same size pants, so it can't have been much.

Anyway, I'm flattered that you thought I might have lost a lot of weight and that you liked the photo. I've been self-conscious about the attempt to grow a beard, so I was reluctant to post a photo. Oh, and if you ever want to get coffee, let me know.

Hey, you changed your facial hair around.

I'm trying. It's a work in progress. Slow progress. I'm not the sort that grow a beard in a week, it turns out.

I know I'm supposed to comment on the elements of composition and such, but fuck that-- hot!

Which beach?

A nameless one in Pineville, Mississippi. I left the interstate to look for Katrina damage but figured I might as well dip my toes in the sand while I was there.

Wow, It does look like you lost a lot of weight. I almost didn't recognize you! I love the starkness of the beach in the background. Great picture.

Thank you. I'm actually not that much thinner, unfortunately. But I am a little more lean, particularly from a psychological standpoint.

I only saw the alternate text for a split second... are you standing on the beach with a gun in your hand? Staring at the sea? Staring at the sand?

You're so good! I wanted this entry to play off its predecessor.

Hey, thanks! I'm not used to the facial hair, myself, but it seemed important to signal the huge upheaval in my life by finding a way not to look the way I've looked for the past twenty years.
