Jeffrey Catherine Jones passed away today.
I never know what to say when it comes to these things. I fumble and grope at words, but everything always sounds so trite.
What I can say is this: I never knew him — hell, I never even met him — but he was like a looming force, ever present and elusive. He was an inspiration above all... I guess he shall remain so, but it still hurts to know that one of your heroes is no longer out there somewhere fighting the good fight.
If you follow a lot of blogs, you'll be seeing a lot of entries about Jeff today. They'll all likely have the above link. I encourage you to click that link and take some time to look at the work, maybe read some snippets from the autobiography, check out the works in progress.
Me, I'm going to get some painting done while I reconsider some things.
