Photography And Half-Thoughts By Mitchell Hegman

My Confessions

—During most of my grade school art sessions, I sat at my desk eating construction paper paste.
—I read poetry regularly.
—I have not, and will not, ever, wear a speedo. (Note: you’re welcome)
—At the age of five, I entered a neighbor’s house when they were not home, messed around with stuff in their refrigerator, and stole a small green plastic army soldier.   I liked the soldier’s stance with his rifle.
—I have never witnessed a live birth of any kind.
—Watching adult humans drinking milk they know came from a cow makes me a little queasy.
—Yesterday, I saved a spider’s life…and I don’t like spiders.
—Given a choice, I would rather carve lions from blocks of soapstone.
—I am uncomfortable when surrounded by silence because my head soon fills with blaring thoughts.

  1. I know about the uncomfortable with silence part. But thank you for saving a spider's life even if you don't like spiders. You're a fucking good guy!
