Are We Still Here?

After 15 years of marriage, there is still no place we would rather be than at each other's side.

No, this is not a suicide note or an autobituary.

In the current scenario of risk around us, it is entirely possible that we could be at risk of illness and death.

I thought of this in February when I had the flu. What will become of my intellectual and creative content, the embodiment of everything I ever photographed and written, if I die?

And how would anyone reading my website, for example, know if I had shuffled off this mortal coil?

I thought about how to keep my family and friends updated about how we are without going through the eternal train wreck of social media, and finally settled on a widget at the top of our home page, on the right. I will update it as I am able, and if one month, three months, six months goes by without an update, we can all assume the worst.

Visit this page (link) to see the widget, or, if you are viewing it on a smartphone, click on the link and scroll to the bottom of the page to see “How Are We?”

  1. This is a good idea but also sad and slightly terrifying that you’ve found it necessary. On the other hand, when I stop and think about this thing that is stalking the land, peeking in all our windows at night, taking away our livelihoods and our joy and freedom (I won’t be able to see my grandkids for weeks, if not months), I wonder how close we all are to death by Great God COVID.

    Glad to know you are both still healthy at this point and continue to be healthy!
