JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 06.02.18
And here we are, in June. The start of the my three favorite months of the year.
I gauge so much of the overall year against June, July and August. Always trying to see more, do more, take in as much of the light as possible.
But, it’s all tempered a bit.
I found out this week that a guy I know since college – a well-respected writer whom I’ve written about before – well, he got some potentially crushing news: His young daughter, around the same age as my Olivia (maybe a year or two older, so 13-14ish) was diagnosed with leukemia.
I can only imagine what Duane and his wife are going though, as well as the rest of this family. Hopefully, with modern medicine, Evie can beat this.
Duane lives in Los Angeles now, and when he put out on social media that if any one wanted to help that going to donate blood would be a big help, many other writers and people that know Duane did just that.
That’s just some good people right there. And, after all the crappola that social media can give you, this is how social media can be good.
So here to Evie. Fight the good fight, kid! Beat cancer!!
Oh, also….it’s time for my monthly PSA: Back up your work!

“I am steadily surprised that there are so many photographers that reject manipulating reality, as if that was wrong. Change reality! If you don’t find it, invent it!” ~ Pete Turner, who would have been 84 this past week.
