Sigh. This old computer of mine has started to make funny/worrying noises when I try to do too much on it. It's space is also getting maxed-out by all of these large photo images I'm storing on it ... so I may have to be out of touch for a bit while we work on getting it backed up and off to the Geniuses at the Apple store. I'll spare you the boring details, but hopefully it will be resolved soon and there will be more thoughts and more pictures.
Happy weekend, friends!
