Athens. October, 2011

When I climbed up to the Acropolis and made my way to the portal of the Parthenon, all I could think of was the Steichen photo of Isadora Duncan in the same spot. That was my inspiration. Alas, the execution relied on the photo skills of a kind stranger whom I asked to snap the picture. Click here for the inspired original. (If I look particularly happy today, it's because June 26 is a big day for me. One year ago today, the US Supreme Court happily handed down its monumental ruling on marriage equality. And 32 years ago today, monumental in its own way, the long-locked portal to a sober life opened for me. Hallelujah!)
