On the third floor of the University of Saint Thomas Library. Actually, I am on the third floor of one of the University of Saint Thomas libraries. (I looked it up. I couldn’t help myself. It is the O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library.) I have a Creative Labs Zen 4 GB player that I bought at Target on my way to the library. Actually, I went out of my way to by it. I had been thinking about the purchase of something like for some time, especially in the week before we went to Mexico and the “AA” batteries in Tomas’ old Aiwa cassette player were dead again when I wanted to list to The Morning Show while on the elliptical trainer at the YWCA.

And I unloaded photos from the two cameras. The hit is a video that Madeline took of Yuna buried in sand. I put that on YouTube but not searchable. The photos, all my photos, really, I want to find a place on the to store them.
Here’s what my world looks like now. Mexico was much more colorful.
There is a lot of color correcting that needs to be done.
…and of course, the darn thing doesn’t need to be that big. (I am working in Google Writerly and don’t have the swing of sizing photos yet. I will publish to the blog to see what it looks like.) –Not too well. There is a line that got cutoff. Oh well.– I couldn’t help tweaking. There’s a bunch of
