  Photography and Memory Revisited

A quick note to students who were in my English 1101 class. Miles Hochstein, whose photo-essay we discussed last semester, has contacted me to comment that he read many of your comments about his project. He writes:
I was just reading through your students' blogs commenting on my web site
(located via Yahoo search for my name) and enjoying their musings very
much. Please convey to them my thanks if you have a means to do so,
including the guy who thought I was a "wieido". I love that comment and
thank him for it. It reminds me of the amusing social norms that seemed so
important when I was growing up. I would say to him with a smile now
"that goes without saying!" Discovering your own unique individuality,
your own inner weirdo, is something that I would commend to any young
adult. Is there any other happiness?

I enjoyed all the comments, including the negative ones, and particularly
the thoughts people had about their own relationships to photography and

I learned from the experience of being the object of commentary. Please
feel free to post this on your blog if you'd like.
I just thought that some of you might be interested to know his reactions.
