2018 : Let's Make It Better

Posted by Rick (Toronto, Canada) on 31 December 2017 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

I heard that posting a year end "selfie" was some kind of Am3 tradition, and though I'm not big on selfies I do enjoy this community spirit and so here I am with one of my six-stringed friends (a gorgeous Gibson SG) saying "hello" and wishing you ALL a happy new year. I don't think that 2017 will be fondly remembered for a number of reasons, mostly political and egotistical, but as we symbolically turn the calendar over we can certainly strive to be kind to each other, every day. It will make a better difference.

I did not notice this tradition on Am3, and I prefer to be behind the camera that in front of )) your eyes and smile are full of kindness Rick ! I wish you an excellent and happy New Year's Eve !

@Anna Cherer: I read on another member's page about this selfie on new year's eve thing, and though I also prefer to be on the viewfinder side of my camera, just this once... ha ha. Happy 2018 to you and your family, Anna.

I, for one, am totally delighted that you posted this, sir...I also love the shot of you in B.C. on Vancouver Island as you were just chilling out...Your face exudes warmth (and I am NOT alluding to this awesomely-toned image here!!) ...and that warmth can be felt through the screen and definitely through the words...I remember you from years back on AM3 and I am SO glad that you are still with he game, never mind a break or two, which I have a tendency to do, as well. I better stop before I go overboard....You are an awesome guy, sir...I wish you love and good music and please take care of Gordon and Buffy for me....Love -dj
