For those of you who not know me, this past summer I interned at a place called Chautauqua Institution. I was a photographer at the daily newspaper, the Chautauquan Daily

Chautauqua is a heavenly place. I revisited it yesterday and met this man Joe Newcombe while I was there. 

He liked talking about the television series Bones. He told me how he had to drive his mother to a Veterans Day event and how there would be nothing for him to do there except stare at the other women. I asked him if he liked to take the fish he caught home to cook and eat them and he told me he didn’t like fish so he gave them to his friends and family who do. “When I’m done, I go home and watch the boob tube and get fat.”
