On or about January 29, 1998 I received word my younger sister, Brenda had given birth to a boy, Cameron Michael Fischer. I was an uncle. That life was so far from me, I don't remember getting the word. It was the baby that freed me from my awful marriage (Miimii had told me if my sister ever got pregnant she'd divorce me) so I am grateful for that but meanwhile back in Korea I thought I was falling in love for the first time. I had no interest in anything else
On February 6th, Ha and I had a turning point in our relationship. Ha, who was usually online every night (and most of the day), disappeared for many days.
I didn't bring a single photo of myself or anyone else to Korea. When I travelled, I'd sometimes bring more than 100 photos of my wife, but after the separation I 'flushed' my life. I left all the memories in Virginia, so when I met Ha I began shooting photos of myself to send her. These are some of those--this is my outfit I wore to the Halloween party in Virginia in 1997. I liked it. It felt good.
