Back in January last year I was in Abercastle in Pembroke, for my father's 50th birthday. Isolated, chilly, watching films, walking and reading, I conversed with J trans-continental-style, via iMessage, about a possible project to keep me busy creatively, whilst on the tedious job-hunt.
I first floated the idea here , and again mentioned it in another hopeful, surprisingly chirpy post here.
Since I'm here again, a year later, job-seeking in the Swansea valley, and he is still where he is, I thought about them naturally, those 8 photos he shared with me, before doubtless getting bored of my inability to post things in a timely manner!
Nevertheless, it was a joy to receive a little bit of an alien continent each day, a look into the life of someone I care about deeply. Thanks J and thank you for the captions too.
