Schuyler is my weird and wonderful monster-slayer. Together we have many adventures.
you have a wonderful kid there. :)
Yeah, you give Schuyler a zillion words through those pictures.I haven't even known how to comment on the posts the last few days. She is truly something else, in the best possible sense. It's enough to make me pack my bags and move to Plano with my masters and teaching credential! Spectacular girl there, sir.And congrats on the Good Housekeeping spread! Hopefully, that sends book sales through the roof! I bet a lot of their readers aren't necessarily blog readers...what a great opportunity. The pants, they are getting fancier.
delurking to say that these pictures and your original post brought tears to my eyes. beautiful. and touching. any idea when your book will be available in the uk? or will i have to get a kind relative to ship it or just pay up on amazon.com?
any idea when your book will be available in the uk?I have no idea, sorry. It is listed on the amazon uk site, I know that.
Wow, this kid gets it. In a cosmic way.
Gorgeous pictures as always. The original post and now these pictures have given me a more positive and touching reason to cry these days (instead of the stress of being back in school). What a beautiful sentiment - if only all our world leaders had Schuyler's compassion.
Note to anybody with a Flickr account. I've started a group called "Schuyler's Monster," for pictures of people holding the Good Housekeeping article or the book itself. I figured it would give the book a little publicity on Flickr.
Those photos are beautiful- and I can really see how very *gentle* she was with the victim...so delicately touching his toes, his cheek.These images are priceless.
Great pictures, Rob! I'm looking forward to seeing Ice Girl in person at the book signing. Have you started on the costume yet?
Did she talk about this later with her BBoW?
Actually, no. Sometimes Schuyler will become very taciturn, particularly with her device. When I posted the photos, she wanted to look at them for a while, but other than answering my yes/no questions about what she saw, she had nothing to say. She very deliberately keeps some things to herself.
Rob,I'm a veteran photojournalist,veteran reader of your blog and former Odessa resident too. Your photos on Schuyler's art appreciation are very touching. I've often wondered what ever happened to your marvelous web postings on Odessa. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed those. Any way to still find those on the WWW?Ceasar
Alas, after the theft of my computer by the Joff almost a decade ago, the old Odessa page has been gone gone gone.
What a shame!Your Odessa flashbacks could have made a great book themselves, especially with your talent at weaving words.I haven't been back there in 18 years, but still miss Johnny's Bar-B-Q, Pancake Alley # 10, The Globe, the sunsets, shooting football at Ratliff and the Tex-Mex food. My first six months living back here in the Midwest were torture without good fajitas, chips and salsa. Heck, I even began yearning for a quick lunch at Rosa's.Ceasar
Hi Rob,I've read the Good Housekeeping article and now - am waiting, waiting... for the book (which I pre-ordered some time ago).Congratulations!I agree with "kris" above - your photos give Schuyler a zillion words.
I've been reading your blog for a while. Just delurking to say that I am touched. Schuyler impresses and amazes me. Her face is beautifully ineffable. Thankfully, the pictures say what I can't.By the way, I've been wanting to link to your blog from mine. Do you mind? I have an almost nonexistent reader base, but I'd like to keep the list of blogs I read current, and since it's missing yours, it is several months behind. Thanks!
Of course I don't mind, link away!
Just bought GH...I'd read all of those entries before, but they made me cry again. The supporting pics are perfect too! I especially love the teacup one.And I just noticed that we're less than 30 days from B-day...how ya feelin??
Your photos of Schuyer are absolutely captivating and speak a thousand words! Your love for her is beyond words, and it's obvious you can read her so very well. As a mother of a non-verbal child, I, too, understand very well the depth, compassion, love and joy that emanates from my child when not a single word is spoken. Bless you and kudos to you, Rob.
How fake. Is Schuyler always this INSIGHTFUL and SENSITIVE and WONDERFUL, or is this all Rob can shovel?
Schuyler's world is so much more beautiful than ours. I can see and feel the beauty she lives in through your pictures. You have really given us all a gift with this glimpse of her mind. THe pictures are so touching, I can barely see them through the tears in my eyes. A beauty is there that is beyond words. Even if she did speak at this time, no words could adequately cover the feeling of those photos. Thank you. So truly, truly beautiful. I, too, have someone who is my biggest puzzle and my greatest pride.
