This was one of Mac's photo's (circa 2008) that can be found on his Flicker pages... an ironic little homage to himself, perhaps... and an image that he'd probably enjoy on this memorial.
I would, at this time, like to give a special thanks to this blog's followers: Kate Sherrod, Kartott, Joshua Fouts and Anna Nachesa. Your presence has been (and always will be) much appreciated. I wish you all the very best.
Also, thanks to those who have left their mark on these pages, in whatever form.
For those who may have wondered, "Araqinta" was never an alias but was in fact a name for my artistic "workshop" while Mac was alive. It was taken from the name of a fictional planet I had created for an unfinished story I had began in 2005. I have taken most references to it off of these pages, but it will remain the URL for this blog-spot.
