I have never kept a journal. Dyslexia makes reading difficult, yet I call myself a writer and I can knit a Norwegian Bolero jacket using 4 double-point needles. I am not overly social, I am very much a loner, yet people tell me I am very personable and warm. I will hold a conversation on just about anything when you see me in person, yet I rarely talk on the phone and most of my friends are mad at me ’cause I never turn on my cell, although, I do enjoy texting. The last time I had company was, what, 2004? So, like…why a blog? And why now?
Modern technology is a reason for one, I mean I have to slide into the new Millennium or be left on the back burner, right? Second, I am embarking on becoming a commercially published author. I am told if I do not tell people I exist then how can I expect people to know who the hell I am?
Who is LD Sargent? Well, I am complicated at best. I seem easy to figure out, but as soon as one tries one fails miserably. I will sum myself up like this; whatever mood I am in is who I am at the moment.
I have lots of projects in the works – all listed on my website . My current completed project is a book I wrote on behalf of my ailing mother titled: TREASURE OF A BRONX WARRIOR; Photographs and Memories of a Devout New Yorker, Movie Star Hopeful and Loving Mother. Treasures is a book about my mother Doris Banbury’s 1950s New York photographs of A-list celebrities including Sammy Davis Jr.; Marilyn Monroe and Dame Elizabeth Taylor. A select few of Doris’ photos are currently in an exhibit at the San Francisco Museum of Modern art on the fourth floor. The exhibit is titled; EXPOSED, Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera Since 1870.
So, there it is and there I am. See ya soon, but not sure when. LDS
