How Do I Feel?: amusedamused
Being as I'm always the one to have camera in hand, it's not often I actually get to be in a photo myself.
My girlfriend, Christina, remedied that problem by taking a portrait of yours-truly.
I dig it (and I don't often say that about photos of myself).

Hello Rusty :) I am glad to finally see a photo of one of the makers of those awesome videos! I hope Christina will post a photo, too. You are a great team for the work you do.

BTW Christina is my Confirmation name.

Ha, why thank you, though Christina is the real force behind the videos. I'm just in charge of boring ol' writing and photography work.
You can see a pic of her in the "About US" section of our website.

I checked out the link you gave me. Rusty, you are a great writer for these videos. It is the way you tell things, so totally accurate that it chills me to the bone. And Christina with her video/photography has great talent. Both of you are great in what you do. I cannot forget the lines "In memory of the forgotten. In honor of the disgraced." The stigma of mental illness is still with us even now. And these lunatic asylums aks 'state hospitals' is just a sanitized name for what are no more than warehouses for broken minds kept from public view.

Rusty, Christina, I admire what you are doing.

At the state hospital where I worked, I never checked it out, but I was told by several staff members that there was a cemetery on the grounds. There were no names on the stones, only numbers. You may want to check that out in some of the asylums you film.

Before there were disposable one-use needles, there were steel needles which one long time patient aide (as we were called) were used and boiled, used again and again and boiled between uses. Can you imagine how that hurt the patient receiving the injection? Imagine the terrible bruising. This was back in the 1950's.

Take care!
