April 11--In service to Her Majesty

I had a dream yesterday that I was going to be interviewed to be the personal assistant to Queen Elizabeth. I was waiting in a pub to be picked up to be taken to the castle. The car came--it was a Rolls Royce with a tan leather interior. We headed up the hill towards the castle, and my alarm went off. I was kind of disappointed because I was sure I would have nailed the interview.

I spent most of my work day yesterday working on the project the dean had cornered me on the other day. It's one of those things I put off, but once I got going on it, I found it quite interesting. I am developing an entry-level curriculum for people who want to enter a health profession, but are not quite sure what they want to do. Kind of a generic health care worker with some office training. I found all sorts of resources that I didn't know existed, and spent a good amount of time nosing around in different courses. I submitted my draft, and will wait to see what the next steps are.

I came home and did laundry, and started packing. I will leave for the Bay Area this morning, and get to Point Reyes about noon, just in time for lunch. It is supposed to be raining this morning, but will clear in the afternoon, so I will do some walking around.

After I got all my camera stuff together, I decided to take a picture of it. It's been at least a few years since I have prepared for a photo shoot like this. It's kind of fun, and takes me back to when I went to Cambodia on my first photo tour.

My new camera is to the left, and the old one to the right. You can see how much smaller the new one is. It weighs a lot less as well. All those packets to the right are my various filters. I don't know how I ended up with so many, but I'm bringing them all. Just in case.
