Stories about those days.

The stories that people have about Jamie’s photos are a source of amazement. ย Some are of the “that’s me and we were doing this” type of stories from Jamie’s friends. Some are the “I never met Jamie but this was taken on my birthday and it means a lot to me. And some are just stunningly moving one of a kind stories.

    I was born a year later to the day I like the maple syrup in the picture- mostly cause it makes me feel a touch of myself in being Canadian- none the less I love the pictures very fun to look and see what was going on in Jamie’s life on my birthday, before I was even around.

    This was the day I was born, and I’m tiny! So “Midget Horse” is actually quite fitting.

    On this day I was hit by a car while riding my bike, I had just turned 10 years old eight days before. I broke my leg, have a scar now in my forehead and behind my head. It was a great summer!

    I play the harp, so this photo made me smile. (There are a lot of music photos here, but I wasn’t expecting to see a harp!) There aren’t too many male harpists around, so it looks like this might be a shot of Henry Fanelli, who has been the pit harpist for Phantom of the Opera since its opening in 1988.

    I was born this day in Montrose, Scotland. There was an American lady on the ward that wanted her baby to be born on Independence Day. Her child was born a couple of days later. The time of my birth apparently caused some acrimony. This picture is a lovely counterpoint.

    This is my birthday, my brother and I were born 7 years and a day apart. Our mother went into labor on his birthday (9/7/1990) but put off going to the hospital until after his birthday celebrations were over. I think it’s beautiful that it seems as though a celebration was being had on the day of my birth.

    We were all showing Warren our recent work here. The encouragement I received on this day, from this group is what allowed me to continue on.

    A great editor I’ve worked with for years, Micheal Saia, invited me to work from his country house in Germantown a few summers back. I took the train Rhinecliff and Rebecca (Quaytman) who was teaching at Bard MFA then, picked me up to drive the rest of the way. Our GPS course looked strangely familiar and I asked her: Isn’t this the way we used to go to the pond? (or “The Pond” as it became an official name: A magically perfect place hidden in an apple orchard owned by some benevolent soul who allowed public swimming) we spent seemingly all of summer ’81 there… never not naked.
    We arrived at Michael’s and were wisked off immediately for drinks on the deck overlooking… a pond.
    it seemed wishful that the site of such mythic memories would now be under the care of such a great guy. I marched down and took a single phone photo from a familiar vantage… then compared it to this PotD. both photos were taken from the identical angel. Every element of the landscape looked completely unchanged. This morning I showed Michael how consistently The Pond appears in Jamie’s pictures from June through August ’81 and compelled him to open it for public naked swimming.

    The day my mother was discovered dead. She committed suicide at age 73 after having attempted to do so since she was 16 years old. We were happy she was finally at peace.

    My 40th birthday. My brother and sister-in-law threw me a big party with friends from my brother’s band. It was one week after my mother committed suicide and we had the party anyway. My bridge to the future?
