Renovation to the area around my home studio is complete. I've still got boxes piled around, but I cleaned off enough desk space to put my laptop and my project notebook. Top on my list aside from editing my novel: Complete the pile of short stories drafted over the years. The first on my list is Alaskans for Albedo, written some years ago while assisting with the University of Alaska Fairbanks STEP Program. Chris Pietrich was conducting a session on albedo and took teachers outside to take readings on a pyranometer (see side picture). That inspired a story (approx wd ct 1,450) about the opportunistic behavior that comes whenever crisis, this time global warming, looms.
