    Yes! We, your faithful readers, DEMAND your weekly round-up. Thank you (once again) for giving in to our demands. :) I was especially struck this week by the juxtaposition between Jaye Watson’s thoughtful piece and Derek Wong’s beautiful photos. Thank you for the thought fodder, Jim.

    • Coming up with the opening blurb each week is surprisingly tedious! Only way to cope is to try to have fun with it. So glad you enjoy my weekly roundup.

  2. Another who enjoys your weekly bag of recommendations. Always a great variety of good reads. And I agree with dehk – once you make Jim Grey’s cut, you’ve hit the big time. :)
