These are my favorite news stories. In my opinion, this is humanity's greatest hope. I'm trying not to get too giddy since fusion is hard. Hot sex and thanks to all the wonderful engineers and scientists working on efficient nuclear fusion.
As always, forget about the jetpacks we were promised. I want my desktop fusion.
I'm pleased with the cohesiveness of the group of art works I was able to enter.

Uh-oh-- "Work that requires special installation or instructions will NOT be accepted." Reader, the show accepts every media except video and film, so I don't know what they are going to do for installation art pieces. Most sculpture is somewhat challenging to display.
Anyway, it is in the jurors hands now. Jurors are people with their own tastes, skill levels, pet media and their own ideas for what kind of show they want they want to build.
So, I started editing some of my portfolio archive photos in Lightroom. After a couple of days of tutorials and videos, they are a hair better. I am still learning the program. I am trying to create a few good-enough pictures to post to Behance and hopefully make some connections there. The ultimate goal is to connect with architects.
