I know, I say I'm changing things around here, then I stop posting + stop commenting + pretty much disappear, but life has been very good. Lots of hiking, I went fly fishing for the first time in nearly 20 years, contra dancing for the first time ever, training for the 1/2 marathon, a trip back home to LA, planning a backpacking trip, taught a workshop + then there is the prep for the Handmade & Bound show in 3 weeks.
It only took 7 years for me to calm down about show prep. Every year I stress over stock, but I've never had the problem of running out of anything. This is meant to be fun.
but mostly packaging up older stock for a show sale.
I'm enjoying listening to field recordings of shifting ice
(scroll to bottom of linked post for audio samples)
It reminds me of the opening audio sequence from the
Werner Herzog doc Encounters at the End of the World
