Your Turn

One of my biggest dilemmas as a blogger has been taking time off.  As a shrink, you’re almost expected to disappear for up to a couple weeks in August.  If you don’t, some people even wonder what’s wrong with you.

On the other hand, I can’t stand the idea of an empty BAG.  As a result, I’ve arranged a compromise.  Beginning tomorrow, I will be leaving you — my astute and able co-analysts — in charge. 

Having had this plan in mind for a couple weeks, I have been selecting and setting aside images to upload for the next seven days.  Just as we’ve been doing all along with “Your Turn,” the analysis and interpretation of each day’s contribution (with the exception of a possible caption, article link or brief explanation) will be in your hands.

If the past is any indication, this should work out fine.  In fact, given the insight, knowledge and breadth that the community has brought to the BAG these past months, I can’t wait to see what you come up with.  And for those of you who have been holding back, now is your chance.

Till next Monday the 8th, the BAG is all yours.
