Photoshop World (PSW): Changes in Plan are a Lesson in Life

I have been looking forward to attending this week's 2010 Photoshop World conference in Orlando for months now. If you love photography and digital imaging, it's really about the best vacation you could have. I've told my friends that I won't be visiting the theme parks or the water worlds. Photoshop World really is that good.

Unfortunately, I won't be going.

My father-in-law had a stroke this weekend and is in intensive care. I was told this morning that he is in stable condition, and I pray that he will recover.

My wife, who would have been staying at home to take care of the children took off to be with her father. I will stay at home in Illinois with the children and take care of things on the homefront. That's the way things work. Sometimes plans have to change.

For all of you who can be at PSW, I wish you a great time. For those of you who can't make it for whatever reason, I hope that you, like me, will start looking forward to a future PSW that will meet and exceed all your expectations.

Guru Award Deadline is Here!

The deadline for entries to the Photoshop World Guru Awards is today, Friday, March 5, 2010. If you’ll be attending the conference at the end of the month, you should think about submitting at least one entry, and as many as three. My entries are already in. Yours should be, too.
