Imprints from an Odyssey is a description of the early 1970s, a portrait of wonderful pockets of people in diverse places, and the story of a young man using trial and error to discover himself.
After graduating from college in 1971, the author owned a degree in literature, a backpack and a strong desire to find his path in life. His journey began with more questions than answers. His travels turned out to be rich in multiple ways. As he moved from job to job and city to city, the author had no camera. This book is his record of the people he met and the places he experienced.
While the author is the central character in Imprints from an Odyssey, the book is not about him. It is a sequential series of portraits of special people and wondrous places, each of which made an imprint on the author and had a deep influence on his life. The book is a series of simple images that fit tightly together.
In telling the story, the author has tried to stay true to Wallace Stevens's concept of not presenting ideas about the thing, but the thing itself.
