From verbal to visual

Many of us who grew up being labeled (rightly or wrongly) as “baby boomers” aspired to the writing professions. As we aged we watched our world being transformed from a written to a visual culture. In many ways, we told ourselves, visual is easier. After all, a picture is worth ….. well, you know the rest of the sentence.

After all, why struggle to articulate what is only an idea formed by images when you could just as easily push a button (Click!) and take a picture that says far more – albeit somewhat less articulately – than you could with your keyboard?

Here, then, is a small record of the many thousands of articles, essays and columns I’ve written over the years.

But lately, as I find myself moving more into a visual world of photos, videos, web links, etc., the archives are moving accordingly.

Use the Contact page to leave feedback, either good or bad. I can take it. After all, I’ve suffered at the hands of some pretty tough editors. I’ve known the slings and arrows (not to mention sharpened pencils) thrown in my direction.

Gulp!
