Testing a Little Image Hack

I’m up way to early in the morning.  Not sure why I couldn’t sleep, though I am pretty stressed out right now with a writing deadline that seems almost impossible (yep it’s impossible), three-hour workshop tomorrow to prepare for, handouts for a virtual presentation due Tuesday, a podcast that’s resting in my portable recorder that’s clambering to get out, and then all of this really interesting stuff coming into my aggregator.  I love what I do 😉

Click this photo I took in Saint Ives, Cornwall a few weeks ago to see the effect — I hope.

Wow!  It worked!
