I lost a friend today.
He was an artist, writer, photographer, curmudgeon, and advisor.
I knew he was terminally ill, but his passing still seemed sudden and unexpected. The worst part is knowing that his beautiful creativity, and the inspired way that he viewed the world, is gone. His breathtaking photos, like this one, touched me.
Rest in peace, Glenn Osborn.

Friends, I haven't been blogging much lately, because my offline life has been quite busy--but a good kind of busy.
One of the things I'm involved in is furthering the cause of victims' rights in New Jersey. Last week, the legislature in NJ rushed through a set of bills that, if signed into law by outgoing Governor Jon Corzine, will have a devastating impact on victims and their families.
Please take a moment to read this online petition, and consider adding your name to this very worthwhile cause: PETITION FOR CORZINE TO REJECT BILLS A4201 and A4202
