His name is Jon Katz.
I think he's my parents' age.
He's not handsome.
He's not super rich.
He's a bit cynical.
He likes his privacy.
He can be a bit crabby.
But he's very honest in his writing.
I have only one of his books.
Dog Days...it's about a man and his new farm and his dogs.
It's his blog that I admire.
He has a way of opening up and saying how he feels and he's not afraid if his thoughts and ideals are going to offend you.
He is done caring how YOU feel.
I need to get on that band wagon...I'm almost there.
He seems to have had some mental health issues a few years ago.
Got lost and let the world bring him down.
He's much more intuitive now and feels more at peace with his life.
He takes one of his dogs on hospice visits.
I really like his line of thinking.
I've written him a few emails and told him how I really "get him" and he's been considerate enough to email me back.
He didn't have to and I certainly didn't think he ever would, but he did.
And I like him even more because of it.
If you like dogs.
If you like photography.
Jon Katz is a super cool guy.
But he doesn't believe it.
That's the kind of guy he is...
