SEPTEMBER 10, 2015

Time Out

Dear Reader, My youngest brother was killed last night in a head on collision 3 hours from New York City. I am going up there to be with the family for a few days. I will add a few days of picture-a-day work to this post to carry me through.

September 10, the still life went through some changes. To paraphrase something Jasper Johns once said, ‘ …you do something to a work, and then you do it again…’

      Thank you all who have written to support me during this time of sudden loss. Your kindness and gentle words are more meaningful simply because we are only connected thorough this delicate medium of the virtual world, and yet it is moving beyond expectations.

    joel – I’m very sorry for the loss of your brother. We don’t know each other, but your sharing here makes for a sense of knowing that exists outside the normal acquaintance. It saddened my heart to read your post. Thank you for sharing so much. Tom

    Dear Joel

    I’m am very saddened to hear your news. As I’ve mentioned before, my previous life was that of a British policeman and my expertise was either in heading up investigations into such collisions, or working closely with the family as their liason officer. Whilst I would not pretend to know how difficult this is for you, I have some idea and I wish you much care for this difficult time. I appreciate that I am a stranger who reads your blog, but I send my thoughts and prayers for your family. I am sure we will all understand you taking a break from the blog to be with your family. Should a stranger in England be able to offer any help, just ask.
    With kind wishes to you, Maggie and the rest of your family. Mark.
