In case you didn’t hear the message Izzy left on the Paperclipping Roundtable…my family had some very sad news last Wednesday. My dad fell asleep while he was driving and passed away after rolling off the highway and flipping his car. Fortunately, no one else was involved or hurt.
I have had great comfort and peace throughout this shock as my siblings and I have been poring over a lifetime of photos and wonderful memories that our dad gave to us. (I’m the one on the far left, below…)
Because of our focus on memory-keeping through photography and video, Izzy and I had a lot we were able to share with my family, and we will be forever grateful that our memory-keeping hobbies had motivated us to capture so much.
I’ve also felt much comfort from friends, family, and people we don’t necessarily know ourselves, but who know us. Encouragement and condolences from Paperclipping Members and listeners have touched my heart. Thank you for your thoughts and best wishes.
How This Affects Paperclipping Members and Roundtable Listeners
So here is how this affects you, my dear devoted listeners and Members, as I have been away from home to be with my mother and siblings, to prepare for the funeral, and to help my mom get this new phase of her life in order…
The Paperclipping Roundtable – Izzy and I plan to do a special Roundtable episode next week. It will just be us, and it will be shorter than usual. In that episode I want to share what I learned and observed regarding memory-keeping since my Dad passed away.
The Member Videos – In all the years we have run the membership, we have never been late on our two videos per month. That is going to happen for the first time this month of February. Please accept my deepest apologies. We were scheduled to start shooting the first of the two videos on the day of my dad’s accident.
Everything is already set up and ready for that episode, so we will start shooting in the next couple of days, but one or both February videos will be late.
If your membership expired between February 18th and Feb. 28th, Izzy has already extended your membership for an additional month so that you will get your videos. He changed each one manually — so he was our hero this month!
Much appreciation for your patience while you wait. Please click here if you’ve been needing to renew, click Add/Renew Subscriptions, and in the drop-down menu choose Paperclipping 1-year renewal for $28.
I also have an article that I had ready to publish to the blog last Thursday. I will publish that this coming week instead. If you have a problem supply that is older and you can’t seem to use it up, you will enjoy seeing this organization-based solution that I will share.
And one last thought before I go —
In 2007 I wrote an article on capturing the relationship in your family. I kept thinking about it during my time with my family. It was the beginning of a change in perspective in how I shoot photos of people. Eight years later, my perspective on this has grown, and I look forward to sharing more on this in the future.
I appreciate all of your support and kindness through this painful time.
After the first, and then the second blooper for the very first two CHA videos, Tim Holtz made a lovely suggestion…that we share the bloopers with you. After all, we are all about being authentic.
So here it is, a blooper reel for your entertainment. At my expense, of course. :)
