Subject: RE: Feb 2012 - Exercise by Leaping Over Clutter
A travel exercise for long drives to the other end of the Diocese! I'm curious - what exercise did he prescribe? Something for while you're driving, or for stops along the way?

Kat, walking is always the best thing you can do for yourself. Good for you! Once summer is here you'll be out hiking again.

I went to a classical guitar concert tonight, the only one I've made it to this year. I was happy to see a big crowd there, and I met an interesting young woman, who was sitting in front of me in the balcony. We were both up there for photos - I because I'm a friend of one of the organizers, she because she is a student journalist at the university where the concerts take place. We talked shop about photos.

I have been learning about the Adobe CS5 suite by the seat of my pants, but as we talked she described the same thing I have felt - the photos take an hour or two to shoot and the processing of them takes days. I told her about Adobe "Bridge" where you can do batch changes. She looked entranced to learn about a program that will let her do this all at once (select the ones you want to work with, then set the batch parameters and let it go.) You still have to do individual corrections, but you can speed up some of it. I kidded her "I've sold you this car, haven't I?" She's ready to go back to her school workstation and check out that program. Decluttering the busy schedule for one interesting student this evening. :)

Fooling with a phone app, so I'd better stop being distracted. Off to bed soon - busy weekend coming up.
