lot that I might be able to do with this machine. If we (for example) do Part II of our trip, I’ll be able to do a better job of keeping up with the dispatches. And it’s lighter than my laptop, so the pack horse will have less weight to carry.
I decided that I will spend a little bit of time each day figuring out what I can and can’t do with my Ipad. Pete and I did figure out how to download Penultimate, which is a notebook program with a drawing option. Playing with this, by sending friends email drawings, has been revelatory. I have been wanting to bring more of a more visual element into my work – and this minimally enables me to do this. I am looking forward to what’s ahead – I’m going to take a photography course this spring, and then further explore the relationship between words and images.
Computers and attendant technology can really eat away at one’s time, and this does cause me to pause. Guess I’ll just have to put a limit on the amount of time spend attempting to figure out the technology. And too, tell myself that this is time well spent.
