Robo-publishing engage in 3, 2,…

Well, the day has come, and I’m off to Guatemala. Thanks for all the kind wishes of support & great camera advice! (I ended up grabbing a Nikon 1 from the Photoshop QE folks, but clearly the market is full of excellent choices.)

I promise I’ll try hard to unplug and fully engage with the experience. I’m really trying to tell myself I can get by with just an iPad, though until I’m in the air my hand will keep flying up, Strangelove-style, to grab my Mac.

Regarding the blog, I’ve queued up daily content to carry through to the end of January. After that, it’s likely to be radio silence for a few days at least (well, unless I have some downtime and write up a–DOWN, hand!!).

Catch you on the flipside,

PS–Sorry if your comments get caught in the moderation queue for excessively long periods. I’ll try to check it when I can.

    Good luck, John! Wish you your adventure will bring you a lot of inspiration and changes for good for you and *la gente*! I think your journey is what we all really need sometimes, but always hesitate or afraid to do it.

    Yes, go.

    You struggle with your habit of reaching for the keyboard (“…DOWN, hand!!” – don’t we all?!!), but the time in a different environment with a different focus will be good.

    Great book on mindfulness and existing in the moment:
    “Peace Is Every Step” by Thich Nhat Hanh
    It’s a series of meditations – very helpful, very (literally) eye-opening.

    You gonna be in DC for PhotoshopWorld in March?

    All the best John, I am sure the new environment will redirect your mind very quickly to new experiences.
