RE: Why did Nadeau bug Echague re the Fresson secrets??

Hi Katherine,

Actually since I was talking to Liam, whom I indirectly met on the list long
time ago, whose article and mine appeared on the same Journal of Post
Factory Photography many years ago, and we were talking about Fresson, and
this conversation with John Grocott and Judy, a certain feeling of "time has
gone by" occurred to me, so I simply meant we are all getting older.   :)

But older is not a good term to use, so I changed it to "more mature." It
was meant to be a joke.

But what you said about us as a group is also true. We seldom think of it
that way, but when I think of it now, I have known some of these people for
nearly or over a decade! That is long. And being on the list all this time,
we have gone through many years together, so whether we have debated or
argued or shouted to each other before, those are even vague in memory now.
Some special kind of friendship remains through the years though.
