Hi. Remember the beginning of the last thrilling episode, when I told you I was at the end of a week-long head and chest cold? Turns out I wasn’t.
I spent another week or so sleeping pretty much around the clock and trying not to tip over from dizziness when I was awake. That put somewhat of a crimp in my “production schedule,” as you might imagine.
All of which is to say, I’ve got nothing for you this month.
Okay, wait – not nothing. Look up there, it’s a picture of a box with a roll of Kodak Kodachrome film in it.
Did you know that you can’t get Kodachrome developed anywhere anymore? I don’t mean it’s really difficult to get it developed, or that you have to send it to a basement in Prague to get it developed. I mean it’s impossible to get it developed. No one on earth can do it now because the chemistry, specialized dyes and machinery don’t exist anymore. Which is really kind of amazing, considering every photo lab on the face of the earth could develop it 20 years ago.
There’s a lesson or a message in there somewhere, but you’ll have to find it for yourself.
