Today is the anniversary of the day that I started writing this blog three years ago. I wonder if there is any significance to the fact that I chose September 11, 2005 to start this. It was the 4th anniversary of what we now call "nine-eleven," and I think that date will always be a day of remembrance for all of us. Perhaps at some level I use that date as a starting point, an anniversary of shocking change and taking stock and nothing ever being the same as it was before and a new awareness of the fragility and preciousness of life. The end of one thing and the beginning of something different. Moving forward.
A lot has changed in my life in these past three years. I am grateful that this record exists. Thanks for coming along on the trip.
P.S. A couple of people have asked how I made the photo collage in the big 3. In Illustrator I made the big 3 and turned it into a graphic, then placed the photos behind it. Then I applied the "clipping mask" effect to trim away the parts of the photos not within the outline of the 3. If you are not an Illustrator user this will make no sense to you!
