42 years: a book of changes

"What we call the beginning is often the end, and to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from."
(T. S. Eliot)

Using the iPhoto application on my MacBook, I created a 50-page book of a selection of art work created as a result of RTN's presence in my life for the last 42 years. The book includes a short introduction and a poem after the art work. The book was shipped to me via FedEx. This first attempt was an experiment, allowing me to learn that I can design a high-quality soft-cover book using my MacBook. However, the book cost me about $50.00, including shipping. One step at a time.

congrats to you, am. The cover artwork is gorgeous. One step at a time is right. Any idea what the next step is going to be?

That must be a great feeling, am.

Nothing quite as satisfying as seeing a major project through to completion, even if it is only a step toward your ultimate goal.
