Jim is gone.
I got behind on checking the blogs I follow. I decided to get caught up today, and a reference to his leaving this world was one of the first posts I saw.
And all I can say is "aw, shit".
Funny thing is, I didn't even know him in real life. I don't think I have commented on his blog in over a year, really. I don't have any right to feel this sense of loss.
But I do. His writing, and mostly is pictures, moved me. I was touched by what he had to say, his viewpoint on the world. He inspired me to be a little better and do a little more.
I am not the kind of person to grieve much when there is a death. Death is nothing more than change, and I'm okay with that. It's probably the only change I am okay with. Funny, huh?
I'm just sad. I didn't have enough time to learn from Jim. I didn't get my fill of his words or the images he shared so freely.
Good Journey to you, Jim. You will be missed.
