The story of the Polaroid Kidd is pretty cool/mysterious - in 2003, Mike Brodie, a self-taught photographer from Pensocola, FL, set out riding the rails of America, hanging with hobos, punks, and other young folk, hopping trains and living in squats and exploring a world not many of us get to see, all the while taking beautiful photos of the experience, exclusively with the classic SX-70 Polaroid camera a friend passed along to him.
It seems that, since 2007, he’s disappeared from view, deciding he was done with photography. After a ton of acclaim and shows, including showing work at the Paris International Photo Fair at the Louve, winning the Baum Award for American Emerging Artists, and a supposed photo book to be published by Steidl(that apparently never came to be), he stopped taking photos. In the four years he took photos though, he created an incredible body of work, capturing a group of people at a distinct time and place, with a great balance of curiosity and respect.
At last report, Brodie received his degree from the Nashville Auto Diesel College, and works as a Diesel Mechanic.
Re: where he went, and stopping photography cold turkey, someone on a message board had a nice way of looking at it: “ I’ve been wondering since 2007 where he has gone? no shows, no sites, no contact, no new works, nothing. Like a ghost. My guess is that since it was unintentional to be a “photographer” and exhibit his work in the first place, he sold his work, did some shows and just moved on to life’s next adventure minus a camera.”
Mike, great work. And here’s to the next adventure.
All I’ve been eating lately is Chia puddings or Overnight oats, which I love way too much to get sick of, but I need to change things up and build a better repertoire of meals. So I searched the world of Pinterest to find high protein vegan meal ideas. This one was a great find, Chocolate black bean Smoothie. I never thought to put beans in a smoothie but it’s a great idea and 😋😋😋

Your legs felt like jelly when you crossed the threshold. You were almost tempted to collapse on the floor as soon as you entered the house, but Tate stood right in front of you, preventing you from being a puddle in the ground.
“How was your day- Oh. You look like shit.” He looked you over, his eager expression turning to one of playful pity. “That bad, huh?”
“I can’t move.” you groaned, extending your arms pathetically.
“Well then!” Tate exclaimed, turning around and squatting. “Hop on!”
You smiled and all but slumped over his back, allowing him to readjust you before he stood up again. “Here we go!” He yelled, running off into the house as you squealed and held tight.

Yes finally a some of both along with educating myself is paying off. After being denied any form of non narcotic pain treatment from the VA. For my service connected back and neck issues. I received a tube of prescription anti inflammatory cream in the mail last week. Should it had taken since June of 2016? Was my complaints necessary? Yes I had to research their patient policies and directives. Along with laws set fourth by our elected politicians. To present my case verses theirs. Not going to take a victory lap. Back to what I said once before “when you win say little. when you lose say even less”
It seems to be doing its job. Masking pain the non narcotic way. The way I like it and want it. I’ve not over done it. Done a practice 25 minuet cardio event yesterday. 300 feet round trip power walking with, planks, side straddle hops aka jumping jacks, squat lunges and mountain climbers for 30 second intervals. My back and neck was not near as stiff or pain shooting every where. I only went at 60% capacity testing myself. Still working on a new circuit training plan. Now that I fell i’m back to normal speed again.
On a last note I was polite to the gentleman from the VA who contacted me. We talked for a while. Then he got back with me and told me what was going on. Then he commended me for going the non narcotic way. We both agreed it shouldn’t had went this far.
