Reading and Writing and the Occasional Recipe

Peter Urban, photographer and friend

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

The photographs of me on my books, my web site, and accompanying my blog were taken by Peter Urban. He was a wonderful photographer and I was honored to consider him my friend. Peter died on Saturday and I will miss him.

Arlette Kafayas, whose gallery on Harrison Avenue in the South End represents Peter’s work, said this about him: “Peter’s enthusiasm for life, his love for his friends, his energy for his community are all part of what made him a remarkable human being. Knowing Peter was a gift--being with Peter energized your life.”

When Peter first learned he had pancreatic cancer, he told me he and Patrick Swayze had something in common. Now, sadly, they continue to. I will continue to picture his smile, to hear his laugh and to wish we could meet for another lunch.
