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.

  1. reminds us that we toil and worry and strive …and DIE. One of the certainties we often do not think about till it hits us , sometimes very hard. You have my sympathy, Otto.

  2. I’m sorry for your loss, Otto. Of course your family must take precedence at such a time. It’s always hard to lose someone close, no matter how “expected” it might be. Thinking of you and your family.

  3. Death is always unexpected, that finally passing. The loss of a loved one is painful for those who remain behind and hold the memories dearly. Grieve and accept Otto, life is all we have.
    The critiques can wait, take all the time you need to be with family and friends.

  4. My condolences to you and all your family, Otto. The loss of a loved one always is difficult, and all of us understand that this is a time for you to gather with family and friends.

  5. I am truly sorry to read of the loss of your friend, Otto. It’s very sobering, and even when anticipated, the goodbyes are hard. To your challenge, I do have one photo that I just love that I’d enjoy feedback. I’ll see if it’s possible to get it to you. If I don’t make it this time, I will set it aside for another time. Thank you.

  6. Thank you all for your consideration and compassion. Thank you for all the positive thoughts. It meant a lot to me. It’s really been heartwarming. Such good friends even if we have never met.

  7. 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.
