This is a piece I wrote about my oldest friend, Doug Fitch.
A true creative genius and invaluable partner in crime...
It is true of many talented people I think
find his blog on my links
Shackled by self-doubt, but aching to create
He is besieged by a manic euphoric desperation.
Left raw from the endless grappling with his demons and muses
He is exquisitely, agonisingly sensitive
And every subtle nuance of atmosphere
Becomes a dazzling kaleidoscope of intense hues.
Be gentle with him
He is an artist
And by his hand
even the most mean-spirited among us
can be bewitched and enriched
And through his eyes
we can glimpse eternity.
