    Thank you for compiling these posts. I am a relatively recent reader, and this will guide my exploration of what I’ve missed (and stretch out the leave-taking a bit).

    I would also like to thank all of you for having taken on this blog. You have influenced me to be playful and take more risks in my own choices, as well as helping to train my eye. Plus I love what feels like a personal connection to all of you.
