      It’s been quite a trip, this fotolog. I’ve learned a lot I didn’t know about myself, my family, my friends – and I’m am pleased to have made some new friends here. I’ve also learned a lot about our world and about life and about living from all of you while being astonished every day by the amazing images you create and the stories you tell.

      I’m going to take a rest from fotolog for a while to ponder on and adjust to some of the new and different understandings I’ve come to. I’ll still be lurking around, checking in with you all, leaving comments when the poor functionality of fotolog allows. I just won’t be posting anything for a while.

      Thank you, all of you, for the extraordinary windows and points of view on so many worlds, and for your many insightful, funny and kind comments here.

      MANY GOOD WISHES TO EVERYONE FOR A HEALTHY AND HAPPY 2004.

Ronni Self-Portrait [December 2003]
After a snapshot journey that covers more than a hundred years, I have arrived at the present time just as a new year begins. If I had my druthers, this final photo would have been shot by einstein [ <A HREF="http://www.fotolog.net/einstein" TARGET=_top>http://www.fotolog.net/einstein</A> ] whose extraordinary black-and-white portraits (which he insists are simple snaps) seem to penetrate to the souls of the people he shoots.

I can not believe this is the end of your flog. Even if I didn`t comment I always looked in, it was something to look forward to. But as one of the themes of your flog is movement of time and inevitability of change I really should not be surprised. Hope you come back with other things to share.Lionel Btw nice self portrait

Ronni, It`s a nice open shot. You look great. Thanks for your words, which always strike me as esp. self-aware. I`ve been feeling many of the same things -- that I need to step back & explore this phenomenom. This is why I continue to update a month at atime. But I can`t seem to get over my hunger for acknowledgment. Anyway, my congratulations to you for your thoughtful approach. I hope to hear from you in the future. Tim

    "Echolalia" is an interactive installation based on images, sound and expressive typography.

    What I am after is to create a bank of images related to the theme "Echo” .

    Peace_on_earth

    War is the plague that human beings bring upon themselves. It is also a plague we might be able to end. On any given day since you and I were born, some part of the world has been at war–in 2003 the total number of open conflicts was thirty. In the twentieth century at least 108 million people died in wars. Of the 20 largest military budgets on earth, 14 belong to developing countries. The United States spends more on its military than the next 16 countries combined
