I felt compelled to peek in on the blog, and I am so gratified to find the words of comfort you folks have bestowed on me—knowing that we all must go through this experience in one form or another, at one time or another. As a friend wrote to me, "losing a loved one is something that happens to everybody sometime and yet is always absolutely unique".
I have to say that I am astonished at the level of compassion and respect that cyber-citizens share with each other, and I feel honored to be so included.
Blessings to you all—let us never take our loved ones for granted.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
