Apropos of nothing in particular…

…except the fact that I am trying to raise a little capital, both to keep myself afloat so that I can continue to post these tips for free and also so that I can help the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) raise money to work for treatments (and, ultimately, cures) for those terrible diseases of the blood.

I have recently created a 2010 calendar with photographs I took on my trips to Lyon, France in 2006 and 2008. The calendar is available for purchase on Lulu.com on this page.

The price is a little higher than the norm for mass-produced calendars you can buy on Amazon and from “walk-in” bookstores. There are three main reasons for that fact: (1) it costs more to publish calendars and books on demand than to print them en masse, which means that the profit margin is relatively slim; (2) I would like to split the proceeds with LLS, an organization I support in part because of my personal experience with lymphoma (my father had it, though he actually died not from the disease itself but as the result of a hospital-acquired infection); and (3) it is a unique piece of art, constituting a personal photo essay.

I think the images are quite pretty (if I do say so myself), and if you are familiar with Lyon, they should bring back fond memories. Take a look at the preview on the calendar’s Lulu page — which consists of the cover image and photos from four of the twelve months — and see if you agree.

If you do, please consider buying at least one copy of the calendar (it’s a great gift!). Your purchase will help to keep this blog going and also will benefit a very worthy organization that is working hard to rid the world of the scourges of leukemia and lymphoma.

To donate directly to LLS, visit their web site. There’s also a link in the right-hand column, under Recommended Sites — Miscellaneous — to the web site for the LLS’ fundraising event called The Light The Night Walk. (The walk in the San Fernando Valley section of Los Angeles takes place this coming Saturday, October 3.)

Thanks so much for your support.
