After almost a week of unseasonably hot weather here the past couple days it has been unseasonably cold and this morning we actually had a few snow flurries. Right now it is 38 degrees F. (below freezing with the wind chill though) and I have been spending some time contemplating what I’ll need to bring to […]

From what I’ve read - apparently it isn’t ok to release water on the Playa. I’m not really sure why since they spray down the streets, no living creatures or plants call it home (other than Burners), it floods partially every Spring, and the region certainly could use more water. I can understand not wanting […]

If you are having trouble picking a theme for your Burning Man camp, steal one of these. Very funny reading either way.

Last night the sky was gloriously clear and the stars were out in force before the moon came up and I managed to see my first shooting star of the year. It only gets clearer than that on cloudless frigidly cold nights. Which reminds me of a few years back standing around in sub zero […]

The quiet and solitude here on the mountain in the cooler weather helps me recharge my batteries after 11 long months of living in a densly populated area, dealing with traffic, impatient people, parking, and having neighbors 10 feet away on either side.

John has a way with words that I can only describe as […]

This is the second year in a row that it has been unseasonably warm for this time of year. Usually late October temps on the mountain here average in the mid 40’s but we have been seeing daytime temps in the mid 60’s and mid 50’s at night. And that was with a heavy overcast […]

I’m on my annual bow hunting trip and writing this from my cabin on a 28k dial up connection which is supposed to be 56k, but in 10 years has only twice gone above 32k. Oh well, the pleasure of being here far outweighs having a crappy internet connection.
Although the day started out rainy and foggy, […]

It has been cold so the sculpture is pretty much at a standstill, and at this point won’t be finished until Spring since my work shop is unheated. I have been practicing with the poi at least an hour daily, and have become fairly good at hip reels and other turning methods. With each practice session I can […]
