Thanks for those quotes.
If that amounts to a reputation I've not been able to cash in on it.
I've written two books.
The first book, I Wept by the Rivers of Babylon sold about 45 copies.
The rest were giveaways.
The Monorails of Mars maybe sold about 5 copies.
My reputation has kept me broke :)
I wrote Portrait of a Man Falling last year after watching the documentary. I was emotionally wrung out and felt compelled to write it.
I was satisfied I had gotten it out on paper. I felt I had told it my own way and was proud of how it turned out. I shared it on this forum. The documentary was discussed and I was glad to have it 'out there.'
I posted it again today because--well--it's nine eleven, isn't it?
If you want to make it out that I was stealing something and making it my own--I have to ask WHY? What is my motive? It is immediately obvious from the photograph and the quotes it is not a fictional story from the creative imagination.
All it was for me was a means of sharing the emotions I felt. Period.
I've not injured the documentary nor the photographer. Judging from the reaction here--I've probably not helped myself.
So, that's all there is to it.
If I committed a crime or a sin--I didn't profit from it, nor did I wish to.
If you want to think I'm trying to "get away with something" that's up to you.
I've been writing and posting here for over a decade and there are probably 1700 articles I've written.
I write what I feel. That's all there is to it.
