No, I have not taken off to the land of the clouds; today the clouds came to me. Have a look at this first image: visibility is limited to less then 10 metres.

And walking around to get a few images of this cloud, while wearing tights, two T-shirts and two sweaters—well, if ever a tool was mis-named, sweaters is it (today, anyway); I do not understand the physics sufficiently, but in these conditions, and no wind, you feel as if the heat is being sucked from the marrow of your bones. Well, we suffer for art.

About 50m past where I took this, the road and fence line disappears down the hill; today, this is the view, and allows you to see how thick this cloud is:

Today reminds me why I do not want to be in Canberra in wintertime! Changing topics, I have loaded over half the MS of Stretching, mindfully into Scrivener; I continue to be impressed by this software. Its note-taking, footnoting, and annotation capacities; its brilliant “Binder” view that allows all sorts of inconsistencies in chapter headings and exercise descriptions to be seen at a glance,  its simple, effective formatting tools—and I have only scratched the surface of its capacities. Its only lack seems to be its inability to handle images and other media like video, but as a tool in the overall process of constructing a cutting edge ‘epub2’ product, it is proving to be a great help. It’s very likely that I will never use Text Edit again, and I have written three books with this tool! Actually, if you count the three full re-writes of Overcome neck & back pain, it’s seven books.
