This is it! My very last velvety, long-exposure photo of a creek or waterfall from Ireland. This one is in Caherdaniel, right outside the Blind Piper pub.

For those of you who find this kind of picture annoying, you’ll be glad to hear that I don’t have anymore in the queue. I took a few in Durango a week ago, but none of them were any good. This means you’re safe for now—though you never know when I might come across another waterfall somewhere, do you? However, the only trip I have planned for the rest of the year is to New York City, which is not exactly crawling with waterfalls as far as I know. So you should all be in good shape for a while.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
