Just wanted to check in with Jack’s readers. Here’s what’s happening on my end. I’ve been going through old files nearly every day, culling material from previous blogs, poetry, and the Q&A site that I think make good blog entries. At this time, I have posts scheduled ahead two or three times per week up through June of 2021, and I am not nearly through looking at the material I have. I have another month or so of free time available to me to keep doing this if I feel like it. The blog will always be here, even if I stop adding more material.
Some people might wonder why I am doing this. I’ve thought about that some, and of course it’s more for myself than anyone else. I’m not willing to let his words die, and it helps me a lot to have those words in my head as I get used to not having him around the way I like. I always thought his writing and ability to think were unusual talents, and I know you regular readers feel the same. I don’t have what it takes to put together a book about him or a book of his writing, so the blog format is easy and as permanent as I can make it. Also, it helps to have something to distract me during these terrible times we are going through.
Even though he’s not responding to comments anymore, I enjoy reading your comments and will try to respond to them or answer questions.
You readers are helping me through a difficult time, and I appreciate it.
That you for what you are doing. Jack – or Old Jules as I think of him – wrote things that are worth remembering.
Thanks for your dedication. That’s a sign of true friendship.
Your work is most appreciated. We all loved Jack.
Thanks, Jeanne, for doing this and keeping Jules’ words – and with that hie memory – alive!
Enjoying the posts very much. Thank you for taking the time and glad that it is cathartic for you too. He is a refreshing voice of original thought in a world of regurgitated memes.
That’s a great description, thank you!
Thank you, Jeanne. Jack knew he was lucky to have you by his side, and what you’re doing, the huge personal time you’ve been dedicating to keep his readers informed, is a wonderful thing to which we’ll be all always grateful. Thank you.
Thank you so much, and thanks to all the others who have left such positive messages. Much appreciated!
