A Quick Update

In 2010, we moved back to the small town in Colorado that I never stopped missing while we lived in Mexico. Now I sometimes miss Mexico, but I wouldn't travel as freely as we did when we were there, camping out in remote areas and so forth.

Mexico today is in a period of change, and in many ways it is more dangerous now. That said, I have plenty of American friends who still live there very happily, just taking a few more precautions than they did in the past.

Just to say!

Here’s what I ended up with after cropping, applying a filter, brightening the picture, and adding a frame:

One thing Bill said was that if you have a strong horizontal line, putting it midway between the top and the bottom of the picture is almost never the best choice. I hadn’t thought of that, but I tried different places for the line and could see it for myself.
