    Thank you Wayne for commenting on Moleskine. I actually just sent them an email with some pics to tell them that I really appreciated the good work they do and then I get an email that they want to feature me. Go figure, but spreading love and kindness without expectation seems to be much appreciated by folks these days.

    I think what you do is such an accomplishment Wayne. Its late but I will come back to read some more. I had to tell you Thanks and do it right away.

    Kindest,
    Michael

  4. Hi Big W — Just checking in to say hope you & the family are all well. Started up a photographers collective site awhile back. Perhaps you’ll give a gawk when you have some spare time. Would love to know what you think. Warm regards, D.
