"One of the marks of a true artist is the ability to see things that others pass by.  Bill Jackson has that gift (and it is a gift) in large measure, finding real treasure in the places and people of everyday life.  His ability to express his findings in both image and word is unique and refreshing.  It is my great pleasure to recommend Bill's work to all who seek something magical."
