Watch the Adobe Max 2010 Keynote Address. Have a look at “the revolution”. Personally, I think “evolution” would be a more appropriate term to describe Adobe’s next digital media movement.

Oh the promise land. Posole, champurrao, coronitas, and a place to fall for the weekend to laugh with family. Jocelyn’s birthday was a blast. Beva said it would only be family attending. This means that there would only be thirty people in attendance at Jocelyn’s sixth birthday party.
At the end of Chaim Potok’s The Chosen Rueven watches Danny walk away,”…his metal shoes tapping against the sidewalk.” A relationship that begins with a baseball game, blossoms into an unparalleled brotherly love. Yesterday as Clemente, my brother-in-law, bared out his heavy heart one year after losing two brothers during a work accident I am arrested with a sense of fear. Fear of losing my own brother. Teary eyed, he speaks softly about how a day doesn’t pass that he does not light a candle for his brothers. He thinks about them every day. He remembers their niñes, childhood. Sliding down mud walls after heavy rains. The grounds where they used to race horses. The location where they died. The amount of community members gathered at their grave site. The bulk of coffee, bread, tequila, rice and sugar at their shrine. They were loved by the entire rancho.
Sitting down at my mother’s dinner table I pathetically try to comfort his brotherly pain, a pain resulting from an experience I have never known. I listen to the stories he has to tell, spellbound. I weep a little. My mom walks over to him, gives him a hug. Clemente tries to cover his tears. His words are full of compassion, utter longing and love. I am absorbed. Fear takes over my body once again. George, brother, you are one of the most important things in my life.
I am very excited about the possibility of studying in Europe for my graduate studies. Application is due in January. I’ve been waiting about a year to finally get the graduate school application process under way. It is a very competitive program. I hope I can get in.
Come out and support one of the best dance and music groups. We are fortunate to have such amazing talent right in our neighborhood. I am lucky because Melissa is a part of this group and get to watch her perform.
