Nearing the end of the year, a time to sit back and edit all those shots that stretch years into the past. Many not scanned, resting like cordwood on contact sheets under camera parts and cans of air. Changed my OS so many times that I’m sure the scanner needs emergency driver updates too. But here, I’ve found the secret to Santa’s lead sleigh-runner. And in case I become forgetful, Merry Christmas! Bring on 2010.
It may sound strange, but I just finished a 2-day jury duty and I enjoyed it. Started wondering if one could be a professional juror. Eat at the courthouse cafeteria, become familiar with all the jury rooms, acknowledge the judges silently as they pass in the halls. That knowing nod of yep, I’m back again. Collect, what, $40 a day.
