new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

roger egbert on mortality

on the chicago sun times, via RD.

an amazing read:

'i don't expect to die anytime soon. but it could happen this moment, while i am writing. i was talking the other day with jim toback, a friend of 35 years, and the conversation turned to our deaths, as it always does. "ask someone how they feel about death," he said, "and they'll tell you everyone's gonna die. ask them, in the next 30 seconds? no, no, no, that's not gonna happen. how about this afternoon? no. what you're really asking them to admit is, oh my god, i don't really exist and i might be gone at any given second."'

read on....

no one, none of us, thinks deeply enough about this. if we did, we'd surely all go mad.
