1. Clear my closets of decades of paper clutter. Ten year old bank statements? Out with them.
2. Work with a young artist who will teach me how to use Photoshop for collaging.
3. Work with our videographer to edit raw video of Patsy's and my conversation with Akasha Hull for Finding Our Way.
Each of these projects is - I can guess - very time consuming. I'll be lucky to make headway with one or two of them and must schedule specific times and become very focused. I think I will begin with paper clutter because AARP is scheduling a ShredFest on Saturday, July 23. Let's see how many bags of years-old paper I can fill and get out of my house.

We will see how these summer days shake out. Perhaps joining Black Lives Matter and paper shredding is all I can manage, what with the upheavals and grave crises.
