I spent this weekend at the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference. This year’s theme was “How Do We Remember” and featured Anthony Doerr, Mary Roach, William Dalrymple and a host of other talented authors. Their presentations over the four days provided great food for thought especially regarding creative process and expression. During one of the breaks, I went for a short hike over terrain that had been severely impacted by the wildfire in August 2013. The landscape prompted reflections on resilience, regeneration and types of beauty. For me, the act of taking photographs is a conscious effort to appreciate what I see, to preserve and to share. This is how I remember.
