    I’ve been busy caring for a dying friend, and attending a family gathering to honor my father’s 80th birthday — so I’ve been a bit absent from our virtual neighborhood. Nevertheless, HUGE belated thanks, Jim. I respect you immensely both for your writing and your photography, so I’m honored that you featured one of my posts. I also greatly appreciated Nick Gerlich’s piece. Although I’ve been working for some 30 years already, I still ponder what would happen if I lost my job, or if my line of work disappeared entirely. It’s reassuring to know that my habit of cultivating several interests/disciplines could actually pay off (because I’m not yet ready to join the other dinosaurs in the La Brea tar pit, ha ha). Thank you!

      It sounds like your life is filled with joys and sorrows at the moment. Always happy when I can feature one of your posts on a Saturday! My great hope is that because I work in technology, I’m protected somewhat from the changes to come.

        I think you’re right that because you work in tech you’re protected to a degree from the changes to come — and you’re also helping shape and create those changes. Thank you in advance, on behalf of Luddites everywhere. (And thank you also for your kind words.)
