Good Morning everybody,
I am writing this post on a sad note today - Saturday (for Monday's post.) In fact, I've been struggling with how even to write the post. Does it fit in with the overall message of the blog? Should I mention it at all? Do I move on without sharing too much personal information? etc. etc. etc... After thoughtful consideration, I've decided to make the post.
Here is what is going on. My mother was admitted into the hospital for what appeared to be a routine procedure a few days after Christmas. Complications set in a few days later and she was still in the hospital after 3 more weeks. When I visited her Thursday evening, it looked like she had taken a turn for the worst and LaDawn and I cancelled our trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, even with the bags nearly packed, so that we could be in town with family keeping watch on my mom. After 87 years of a wonderful life my mom passed peacefully about 3 a.m. this morning. We are all doing "mostly" fine today.
So you ask why did I make this post to a photography blog? Please read the next post as it shows how photography is playing a special part in my family's lives as we move through these next few days. I'm taking two days off from the blog as LaDawn and I move through these next few days with my family.
Look for my program recap on Thursday and Friday from my two KPPA presentations - one of which will include all the the link references made in my Friday program on two of my favorite Workflow/Salesflow programs - ProSelect and Lightroom. I'll sneak Technique Tuesday in on Friday. It's going to be a very cool Photoshop technique, so be sure to tune in.
So until Thursday, all the best to each of you and your loved ones, --David
