Jon Crispin's Notebook

Tommy

Posted in Friends, People, Sport by joncrispin on 16/01/2012

Sometimes I get a bit blocked up when I think about writing on this blog.  Since the suitcases project has garnered so much attention, and with all the new subscribers, I sometimes feel a bit self-conscious.  It is something I fight against, but in the last week I have been suffering from a bit of “Karma Congestion” as my friend Alex would call it.  The easiest way for me to get back into it is to post something that makes me really happy.

When I was shooting the UMASS Fenway game last week, I was surprised and really glad to see my son Peter’s great friend Tommy.  He and Pete have known each other since middle school and he is one of the nicest people around.  This picture says just about all you need to know about him.  Such a treat to run into him in such an unexpected place.

    I enjoy seeing your photographs and reading your blog. It takes a lot of energy at times to do this. I am kicking around the idea of another one. Here is my first attempt http://cruisingempresa.blogspot.com/
    I have to finish the Atlantic leg, but the photographs are on an external hard drive and I haven’t looked for them since I returned home. We were stopped on our journey by Hurricane Irene….

    This is a beautiful and joyful photo of a beautiful and joyful person. Thanks for that. Try to let go of being blocked or self-conscious about what you post. Your talent is undeniable, and those of us who follow your posts are made a little better and happier every time we get to look at your photos. I also enjoy your insightful comments. Just be. It’s enough.
