Today is the day I planned to post something about my dear friend Jason. I have tried over and over to compose something that would do him justice, but the words never come out just right. For now, it will have to be enough to say that my heart is heavy when I think of his absence from this life. I miss him, as I know many of you do, too, and the world will never be quite the same without him.
I thought it would be fitting to instead re-post an entry from his blog which he wrote on January 21, 2009. The photos are beautiful and the words are a message to each of us, even today.
It has always been one of my favorites.
Jason, my friend, you are and will continue to be so very missed.

for those who are friends."
