Misc Stuff
Misc: I was going through some of the folks on Flickr I like to check out last night and found one, GalaxySomething, was gone. Her page was replaced with a Flickr generated comment that she was no longer an active member on Flickr. I was crestfallen. She had some really cool close ups of squirrils and other animals she shot, and also some really good self portraits. She was one of the first people I stumbled across on Flickr when I started there back in the winter.

I found my reaction curious. I don't personally know her, though I have left comments on some of her photos expressing my approval. But it was as if a friend you do know just up and disappeared, moved away, or quit their job with no notice or explanation. A void was now there. Not to sound too marketing, but I see that as a sign that Flickr really is a community and that you can communicate volumes through pictures that speak to you.

Perhaps it's just me. When I was going randomly through the links this morning, I clicked on her's again and found it was live but with no public pictures. I sent her a quick note letting her know she was appreciated and I hoped she decided to post again. Even if she doesn't, at least I got to say good bye of sorts - which I have found is important. Closure, in different contexts and in varying ways, is an important thing for my psyche I am learning.

Carpe Diem

I too enjoyed her animals pics and feel the loss.
