The Unpredictability of Life


Exactly a week ago I announced another round of the Picture Critique. Many of you have already responded and given me a link to a picture you would like to have some feedback on. As I wrote last week; «I will soon give my honest view and perception of your picture». Soon turned out to be longer than I had anticipated. I want to sincerely apologize for the late response. But sometimes life just takes a turn of its own. A very close family member of mine became very ill over the last week – and finally passed away today. Her demise was expected for a long time. When the end came, it was peaceful and gentle. Next week I will get started with the picture critique. Please keep uploading photos. I promise everybody will be answered. For more about the arrangement please look up my page Picture Critique.

    so sorry, and i’m glad to hear it was a ‘good death’… when my mother died i was surprised how gently she went into that good night.. which is a blessing devoutly to be wished i guess. that is if one must die, to die gently.
