EDITOR'S NOTE: Fresh off a three year managerial stint, your friendly neighborhood lenslinger is back on the street and under heavy deadline. As the numbing effects of his self-imposed containment wear off, vexing reflections and pithy epistles are sure to follow...

A Needed Reprieve...


Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.

2007's almost in the can and your faithful lenslinger is feeling spent. Thus, I'm taking a break; my first real sabbatical since November of 2004. Viewfinder BLUES will return in January. For now I need to rest, open some presents, nibble on my memoir. While I'm away feel free to poke around the archives, lodge a complaint or groove on the above slide show. Finally, thanks to each and every one of you who stops by this sacred (to me, anyway) site. Know that your visits have been a great source of encouragement over the years, leaving me more determined than ever to file something of worth. I'll get back on it when the calendar flips, promise. Until then, here's wishing each and everyone of you a grievance-free Festivus. See ya in '08!

Enjoy the break and take care of the cold.

I don't think the internet is going anywhere. We'll all be here when you get back.

Best to you and the family for the coming year "slinger.

It's good to take a break. Especially when the winners of the decision are little ones you brought into the world.

Enjoy my friend and I look forward to more from you in 2008.

Hard to pull my eyes away from the show. Enjoy the time off. You deserve it. But I want to see a book on the shelf by March, heh.

Merry Christmas

Please enjoy your well-deserved time off. We all need R&R and none more so than my brethren in News. I'm fortunate to be working in the corporate DOC space where opportunities for recharging batteries come more frequently. Turn off your phone and turn off your brain for a while. You'll thank yourself in the morning
