An Online Journal
Monday. I've been returning to my written the day before entries and tweaking them more often lately as many of them verge on incomprehensible. Too many adjectives, too many asides, too many discordant passages hard to read because their rhythms are wrong. This would happen now and again while I was writing when I was younger, but maybe today is the result of an aging brain. Who knows? Do you suffer from “aging brain”? Have you been taking your “aging brain” pills? You haven't? I'll probably come back and rewrite what I've just written here, dear oh dear.

So another good day (I know, I know), a walk down to breakfast at the usual place, back now to do the things I was planning to do over the weekend, that I was planning to do last week, that I was planning to do.... But this isn't news.

Later. So I set out thinking I should find some lunch somewhere, ended up walking downtown, had lunch in the City Center, took the bus home returning in time to watch the News Hour on PBS. It seems Wall Street is having problems. I suspect these problems will continue to be reported for some time to come.

The set of PhotoShop training videos arrived late this morning and I played the first lesson which ran forty minutes. This was the first lesson, right, so it talked about setting up your workspace and menus and things you'd think you'd know after having used it now for the last ten years. Silly me. No complaints, though. This was the idea. Go through the lessons, the first forty minute lesson under my belt; clever things learned, some of which I'll use; only sixty-one lessons to go.

Sixty-one more lessons to go???

Well, why not. I have the time, I now have Julieanne Kost's Comprehensive PhotoShop consisting of fifty-two PhotoShop lessons and ten PhotoShop Bridge lessons, whether they're all forty minutes long or not I don't know. I wonder if they have one on keeping an online journal?

The photograph was taken Saturday at the San Francisco St. Patrick's Day parade with a Nikon D3 mounted with a 24 -70mm f 2.8 Nikkor G lens at 1/200th second, f 2.8, ISO 200.
