Playa : Revisited

November 28th, 2009 § 0 comments § permalink

The Burning Man Foundation sells some tickets in the holiday season presumably so tickets can be given as gifts. I, for my part, and my camp pro cuJ0, bought our tickets this week. It was a big lift for me. This last year has been the most challenging of my life, yet somehow I find myself now looking back over the year and feel very good about things. Now I can start planning to embrace the dust again…this year with the hope that more of my VT clan will make the trek. It is the greatest social human experience you can have. Seriously.

The headshot was during a break in a sandstorm, hanging with Abigail and our essential and unbelievably generous “Hair of the Dog” bar next door, then there are some other interesting photos too:

This year I plan to get some better handlebars for the bike and more lights, yeah! Lighting up your bike is critical for safety reasons on the playa, but also is a serious art form. I need to get “sequencers” this year! Maybe even audio BPM sync?

The photo says it all, and yes, bike commuting does make it easy to stop and “see the forest for the trees!”

Liminal Thoughts :: Fall to Winter

The season of leaves past with a couple of rushes of wind around Halloween and the trees are now mostly bare.  That doesn’t stop me from remembering October with happiness.  I had a great staycation with CuJo and really was able to get a bunch done on the house.  The taste of satisfaction propels me into our impending winter with enthusiasm and hope.

I’ve not felt so excited about the winter season since my return to the east and move to VT in 2004.  Many of the goals that were set prior to that move have been met and newer unexpected goals and initiatives have also panned out.  Not that some good intentions came up short, but the overall plan has been a huge success and this November, I’m really trying to take stock and think back over the journey.

It would be senseless for me not to thank the many who’ve helped and supported me through the last five years.  Special thanks to Cujo, my mom and sister, to Propeller and NGA and to all of my friends in VT.

Namaste.

This is a film I made out of clips and stills from my now ancient 3megapixel sony camera.  It’s still relevant and gives me a shiver about the upcoming season. I’m excited to ski and ride!
