"Fleeting moments and their memories True to my Gemini nature I became lazy and forgetful but was always wondering what I might have missed. Self-doubt and ego began to surface repeatedly. How important were my memories and did I have a voice worthy of sharing with others. I began writing more names, places and events. Mere fragments that made me laugh or cry became my new list, trapping me in a creative conspiracy, which demanded more words and pictures to fill out my journey. I was encouraged to keep going because family, friends and strangers told me that they remembered those early days on their own streets with similar emotions after Volume I. My ego was satisfied and the creative juices began to flow again. I said to myself why not pick apart those tiny moments in our lives, which can fill out those pictures, not unlike Hogarth's etchings. He did it on canvas three hundred years ago and I have always loved his detailed portrayals of the people and places he found on his streets. I am not Hogarth, never will be, but I believe my canvas deserves these added touches to fill out what it meant to be a boy, whose life started in The Bush. Snapshots in time where my life's journey is a metaphor and I am those moments."--
