2018: A Look Back + The Year in Photos

Phew! We made it. Let’s all have a collective exhale… ♥ E X H A L E ♥ For me, 2018 kicked 2017’s ass! This year was soooo much better for me personally. And I’m so grateful for that. The most important thing that I need in my life is connection. And I’m so happy this year to be back in a relationship with someone I love dearly. You may recall from last year’s post that I was single again and spending a lot of time alone working on myself…and frankly, just being sad and depressed. Plus, you re...

Writing Update 2018 week 52

Very little got written this week, what with Christmas travel adventures and then being sick the last few days. I did however have some pretty cool ideas for the thriller book #3. They’ll deal with some concerns I had re- not being as completely episodic as Jack Reacher. I don’t know about you, but I find the lack of continuity in Jack Reacher novels annoying. I want previous books to have some impact going forward. I’d love it if Jack was capable of learning and growing. It’s hard and kind of d...

Camera of the Year?

So what should be our Camera of the Year for 2018? I have a pretty good idea. Looking only at enthusiast cameras, there weren't actually very many all-new cameras. Many, from the Lumix LX100II to the Leica M10P, were derivations of already-existing models. This is a salutary trend in my opinion. Refinement of technological objects is a very important aspect of their creation and development, and I actually like, and approve of (expect, even), the trend towards Mark II, III, etc., iterations. Fuj...
