JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 12.21.19
This year is dissolving before our very eyes.
All those dreams we had back in January for 2020, well, we’re running out of time to realize them.
Those nightmares we had…well, some were realized this week with a most inglorious event in our history.
Do we finish out the year strong?
Or do push back from our figurative desks, roll through the next couple of weeks and get ready for TwoZeroTwoZero?
You ca do either, I won’t judge.
Taking a break can be a good thing. It’s bee a long year (though one that seemed to go by quick).
Planning and strategizing for the new year can be good do.
Hey, nothing wrong with flying by the seat of your pants either.
New year, new you.
Me, I ain’t done yet.

Gizmodo: Flickr Could Be In Serious Trouble (Again)
- OK, as an aside, I’ve been using Flickr for over 10 years now. I’ve been worried about if for sometime, yet I keep uploading. It’s a storage place for me. It’s easy for me to find photos from past years on there, easier than my Zenfolio site. My phone photos automatically back up to Flicker. AUTOMATICALLY! I can also post to IG easy and seamlessly from Flickr. I hope it stays.

I’m just about ready to push back from the work desk for a few days with the family. Personally, it been a good year on the whole. I started a new job. The kids and the grandchild are doing OK. A son and daughter-in-law are anticipating a work driven international move in the late spring/early summer. I’ve not been able to go out taking photos as much as I would like.
In the bigger picture, I expect the new year will be like we’ve had way too much cheap booze on the night before and it is now the morning after. This is not much different from the current situation except we’re all a little older and, hopefully, wiser.
Merry Christmas and the best of the season to Mark, his family, and all the readers.
Happy New Year, David!
