Addicted To A Certain Kind Of Sadness

Addicted To A Certain Kind Of Sadness

Lately I've found that there's a longing to visit locations and friends from my past. Locations and friends that not only helped raise me but also made me realize that there is so much more I could be. Tattoos and memories, integral to my development and well being, of which I held so near and dear to my heart. I sought solace in believing that they would always be there, the same ways in which they live in my memory; flawless, eternal and almost god-like until finally I realize that these friends are human and the locations are physical. All of this was nothing more than an idealist fantasy,...

In 2009, Thomas Slatin, a life long writer since the age of eight, and at the time a full time Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and Firefighter, began to incorporate even more of a focus on photography into his life. He recalls much of his photography work "revolving around his work as an EMT and Firefighter, with a few exceptions."

Harvey Slatin, On Science Vs. Things Unseen

The following article was written by Dr. Harvey L. Slatin, and was originally published as a comment on Science Vs. Things Unseen. March 29, 2011 I am compelled to add to your excellent blog. There are so many aspects that require clarification and should not be answered in one blog post. The most important one is illustrating what Science really is and to refute the notion that many have that Science is a destructive force that will doom us. Scientists don’t create or “invent” things. They discover (if they are lucky) what already exists, seen or unseen, like bacteria. Michael Farady...

When Is It Time to Let Go

When Is It Time to Let Go

When I was young, I was certain that I was in love.  It felt like love, and it is often the tender beginnings of what we assume will lead to a lifelong love and the feelings of which we wish would last forever.  Those feelings of elation and hope and promise which one seeks to capture and hold in hopes that things will never change.  I would have wrapped up those days of my youth in plastic if only to preserve the snapshots and memories in my mind, and perhaps to gaze upon that particular time whenever a certain unidentifiable smell brought be back to those memories.

Generation Gap

Generation Gap

My father was 64 when I was born, and that in and of itself created perhaps the greatest generation gap I have ever encountered in my life. In some respects, by fathering a child so late in life, I may have skipped a generation.

A Notebook For Every Purpose

A Notebook For Every Purpose

Recently, I resumed the arduous task of going through the contents of my fathers estate, and came across a collection of small bound notebooks.  I never realized just how much my late father and I had in common, until just recently.  As it turns out, he was an avid note-taker like me, and like me, had the compulsion to over-document his ideas, plans, and experiences. Unfortunately, his notebooks are filled with diagrams, schematics, and very high-end scientific mathematical equations that I do not understand.  Brilliant work, indeed, but of course, when he was alive I asked him about...

Not Taking Enough Pictures Is Something I Regret

Not Taking Enough Pictures Is Something I Regret

I sincerely regret not taking enough pictures, especially during times in my life that I now consider to have been major turning points in my life. My father bought me my first camera, and every camera I ever owned during the course of his lifetime.  My very first camera was a Pentax 35 mm film compact point-and-shoot.  As the years went by, my father would take my old cameras in exchange for newer, more advanced models.  Unfortunately, the cost of film and the processing which came later became expensive, forcing me to conserve my film to one or two rolls per month. In many ways I am envious...
