At around the same time I heard the sad news about my uncle passing away, I received good news about getting into the Eddie Adams Workshop. Strange how perspective twists its way around life. Although I would have liked to be present a few years ago, I think this is coming at a good time. As a student I'm sure I would have taken away a lot, but there may be advantages to going now as a young professional.
On a seperate note, I've made a stronger edit of The Third Ward - the story about a government hospital's burn ward in Varanasi. Check it out on my site if you have a moment.
