Sylvia and Ted “interrupted in a spat,” Chalot Square, London, July 25, 1960 photographed by Hans Beacham for a portfolio of images of British writers

"They were sullen. Hughes was rude. He was going to get more attention than she, and she didn’t like that while he did. He invited me outside and told me I needed to know that he loathed photographers". Hughes particularly wanted to keep Plath out of the way. "His wish, of course, forced me to photograph them together", Beacham said; and later; Hughes acknowledged that he had been "an ogre."

then you force yourself to take a step instead of just poofing to where you wanna go in the area, and you should focus all your energy to smelling the room or field or whatever, to seeing every detail, to feeling the ground beneath you and the wind on your face, and usually by then you've focused so much that your anxiety has gone down but if not just keep going and wander around dream up a dog and pet it you know make it your own it's a good way of removing yourself from the situation you know?

I really think this will help and thank you so much again!

quick fix for anxiety: (i get it too-sometimes without even noticing) what i do is i close my eyes and breath in for four and out for four doing that weird yoga esque thing where you use your stomach to breathe instead of your chest??? and then i picture a happy place, so it could be a meadow or a beach it's usually the same place every time, and you try actually putting yourself there, not just imagining it, but pretending that you're physically there, so you like walk in the door or whatever..

Thank you so much for taking the time to send your tips to me. That is a fantastic idea and I’ll definitely try it out. Thank you!!!
