Joan and Roland, my parents, for the Ultimate Gift-
Giving over part of their Lives
So that I could have mine...
Norma C. Smith, The Eyes of the Poet; what I would not
Have seen but for you, my love…
My Fabulous Friends
Without whom the task of Living would have been
Much trickier indeed...
Special thanks to Pamala, whose unflagging effort and
Dedication brought it all together
And the Spirit of Windfeather
Whose Song Shows
That the Best Student
Becomes the Greatest Teacher...
Grateful and Loving Acknowledgment go to
Love Crosses Over

Special thanks to Cecil Cole for the amazing Polaroid transfer image! (Back Cover)
The images created in Italy were made possible due to the generosity of the Durst and Leica companies. Many thanks particularly to Marco Foglietti, Robert Perathoner, Norbert von Aufschnaiter, and Dan Gray for their patience and understanding, and also for enduring the creative process; and Jerome Bannister for making the connections.
I would also like to express my deep appreciation and gratitude to Samy Kamienowicz of Samy’s Camera for his years of friendship, support, and for making the Italian adventure possible.
