I Do Heroin on the Train Line So You Don’t Have To – Book

$19.93$30.00

This is a poetry & short story collection that looks back on the time I spent living on the streets from town to town and place to place as well as my struggle to leave that life behind. It’s a time in my life I’ve never been able to express, but I finally think I can look back and share… and, hopefully, help someone else as much as others have helped me.

But beware. It’s not all flowers and puppies. It’s a rather dark glimpse into a world that all of us secretly enjoy a little taste of, but none of us want to live there. I lived it, so you don’t have to. So have fun. It’s just a little glimpse into my galaxie… Don’t Panic.

Description

I Do Heroin on the Train Line So You Don’t Have To: A Hitchhiker’s Guide to My Galaxie

Book Synopsis:

Not a lot of people know that I ran away from home at 16. And I never went back. Some days I don’t know how I’ve made it this far… and then I remember maybe I haven’t made it.

It’s been a very long life, and I’ve lived through and done some rough things that I’d never wish on anyone. I’m lucky the people I hurt have been able to forgive me, and that through it all I’m not dead.

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne Ramey, owner, editor, & contributor at Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the young age of 5, and was immediately hooked. Every trip, even just to the local park, was turned into a fantasy scene of her own imagination that would later be turned into epic tales in word and photos.

Melodie spent her teen years learning from and mentoring under professionals such as Richard Young, John Sheckler, and The Grand Conundrum. She received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors such as Hoosier photographer Darryl Jones, Jonathan Wilson, and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up with photography and listening to amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when they hear the music. She wanted to help people SEE the music by capturing every magical moment of concerts that she could only dream about as she gazed into music magazines like Rolling Stone and Spin.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to even being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography, as well as one of a kind photographic creations. Melodie published her first print book Photographic Memories: In the Beginning, a collection of poetry, in 2011, and has since published 2 more print works, Photographic Memories: Meet me in the Middle and Hoosier Heavens, her first photo book. Melodie currently acts as publisher, editor & lead contributor at Photographic Melodie and does freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and artists.

Melodie says, “I started out with a Tweety bird camera and a dream and I never let go. I will always love photography and the vessel it has given me to share the images of my heart and mind with the world. I have found that every single person on this earth visualizes the world in very different ways. Some people are optimists, some are pessimists. Some people are daydreamers, and others keep their feet firmly planted on the ground. Photography allows me to show some of these different visualizations. It allows the rationalist to see that it’s okay to dream, it can show the monsters hidden in the dark, and it can show even the saddest of people that there is still joy in the world.”
