This morning, Harry, a trainer who rides his horses, said, "In hard times, monkeys eat hot peppers" and "When I first started in this business, a trainer told me -- keep yourself in the best company and your horses in the worst company and you'll do alright."
"My Suffolk Downs" was just published by Pressed Wafer and Kat Ran Press, photographs and poems. A chapbook, "The Real Story," can be ordered at www.finishinglinepress.com. I've been doing a great deal of community work, short videos (29 so far, and photographs during the last year in Chelsea and in Lawrence.
I was a photographer for a thousand years, specializing in personal work, documentary. Now I write and work in video with a few photographs thrown in on the side. My website is www.melissashook.com
