Wow! I never dreamed I’d be almost a professional published photographer, the “almost” a necessary qualifier because (1) naturally I’m not being paid for use of the photo, (2) the heading of a weblog isn’t really a publication, and (3) simply snapping a digital photo when the camera is on automatic barely qualifies as photography (I did, however, press the zoom lens button with my right index finger, which involved some minimal decision-making).
All that aside, I’m thrilled that the cropped photo looks so nice on Jack’s weblog, viewable by clicking on the link above. However, I’m not thrilled that Jack has decided to close down his weblog on July 6. I’ve only been a reader of Jack Bog’s Blog for a fairly short time, but I’ve enjoyed it, and will miss it.
Maybe if we all send out a message to the universe, “Keep going, Jack,” we can create an altered reality in the Force/Tao/Providence/Destiny/Karma that guides such matters. I do respect Jack’s reasons for taking a break from his blog. But shutting down an interesting, thoughtful, informative weblog is a loss to the Blogosphere.
There’s still thirteen days until July 6. A lot of mind-changing can happen in that time. If not, thanks for giving my photo a nice home for a few weeks, Jack. May the spirit of the beautiful Three Sisters always be with you.
