The band played fun, melodic punk rock with nary a negative vibe detected. So the fighting was completely incongruous. And really, isn't fighting always incongruous? Something must have been brewing all day. Or two many . . . er, brews had been consumed. It's summer, right? Still, while things felt like they might get really out of hand for a minute or two, I had a lot of fun photographing the melee. I like catching odd configurations of bodies. And I always regret I owned no camera when I was attending all those Utah hardcore shows in the '80s.

So, I guess the point of all of this, is that I'm feeling pretty creative lately. And I don't know if it's due to the Artist's Way, and/or the fact I just turned another year older (and feel like I'm running out of time).
I still experience jealousy over the successes of others, especially people who are doing the same damn thing I am. But I'm trying to get over it.
