I am still getting increasingly more involved in the local arts/cultural scene in Lowell. I've joined an art co-op/collaborative which is part of the Zeitgeist Gallery, and today hung my first 'Art' piece in over a decade:

Buddha Troll, working proof 1/1, inkjet print on 100% cotton rag matte paper, 2'x3' in 6 1'x1' parts.
Not great photos, or even a great piece, but a good start I think.

So, this is my latest experience with #Adobe -
I was going through the 2000+ images I've shot so far this year, trying to sort them into collections, and every time I created a collection, I had to navigate back to the main folder...so I was wondering if some 'back' command existed as in a browser.
Signed into Adobe.com, and selected forums under learning and support. Selected photoshop lightroom...typed my question, and copied it, because I know the way adobe forums work - if the prefab answers they give you don't work, they've actually erased your question, and you'll need to re-type it to actually submit it to the forum.
Then I realize I've not signed into Adobe forums, though I did sign into Adobe...so I go to the sign in screen, and it is blank, so I open up Firefox rather than Chrome, and it is still blank.
So now I'm just trying to get in contact with Adobe period, look under contact us, and discover their entire phone system seems to be down. They suggest chat, but that of course doesn't work, so they suggest...forums...
And I've just wasted another half hour or so to Adobe customer support that offers little to no support, for software I've been paying $50/month for, going on close to two years now. Not to mention the time it took to type this.

A new project I've begun. I've always the sense each human's body is the center of their universe. At this moment, I only seem to have mine to work with. It is strange and new for me to be both the model and photographer in a studio situation. I had to wrap the back and top of my camera with saran wrap. Actually not much processed yet. Also, a definite sense of being influenced by the images I've viewed second-hand of #Butoh . #selfportrait #artofselfportraiture #blackandwhitefineartphotography #blackandwhitephotography

Dear #Google  ,
I am so angry at you right now.
I just discovered that some months back, with no action on my part, you suddenly decided to stop forwarding #gmail   from one of my other accounts to my main account, which had been forwarded regularly for years.
Receiving no notification that this occurred, and not being aware this had occurred, has cost me some hundreds of dollars, as I missed literally hundreds important emails.
Making some change to gmail or your policy, which disconnected my accounts without my knowledge, really screwed me over.

Thanks +William Gardner , I can recall those now that you've mentioned them and certainly can't disagree.
