have a need for solitude, she wrote. That’s what this picture is about. Quietness and solitude. And, peace.

I’m going on a news diet. I can’t keep reading about… everything.

That’s not true. It’s about to be baseball season. I love baseball. The season is so long that the sport becomes a symbolic of life. It’s the only sport that is negative. If a batter gets one hit out of three at bats, he’s hitting .300, which makes him a good hitter. That also means he made an out twice.

So for the next couple of days, at least, that’s all I’m going to read. Oh, and books. That should bring me a little balance.

This is a cellphone picture. I made it on the phone. I developed it on the phone. I enhanced it on the phone. I even put the border and the credit line on by phone.

You see pictures like this one are destined for only one place. The web. The smaller file, the better. This file is about 700 kb. I realized that putting big files on Storyteller only slows everything down.

The same thing happens with online publishing and advertising. Those folks don’t want a huge file. They usually specify the length of the file on the long side of the picture. And, it’s something smallish. They don’t want to have problems with their websites.

All I know is the only constant is change.

Change or die.

They said.
