It has been a thrill serving this community, and I plan to stay active as a JPG member—praying I finally invest in a new camera. Thank you to every JPGer, because I have earned through this position a newfound appreciation for photography, art, and community.

A few things I learned this summer, as illustrated by the JPG community:

What a blessing to share this experience with each of you—JPG members and staff. Here's looking up. Farewell!
