This morning's dawn was to the "right" as I drove east to buy Sunday donuts. It was bright in the clear, cool morning sky, but it was not directly ahead of me on the east-west avenue. My squint was less acute.

In New England, the dawn has moved south as the Earth's tilt gradually makes the season's shift toward the winter solstice.

Soon the leaves will turn and fall.


Ah, for an evening of infra stuff and tinkering with new projects. A little music on the bookcase speakers. Tea in a bit. Good times.

The tower was empty, save for a cat.
"Did this princess also rescue herself?" the knight asked.
"They can do that," the cat said.
"But I must find someone to rescue!"
"How else can I prove my worth?"
"Well, now," said the cat, "I know someone trapped in a bad place."

I am in that delirious and delicious stage between projects. One finished and now.....the possibilities are bounded by the hooks and materials I have in the drawers.....but the ideas are endless. I want to start a new thing (rather than address the waiting-to-be-finished drawer) but I want to stay in this wonderful state of imagination.

Laughter in recognition and laughter in pain, / in theatre our emotions can gain / a space, a voice a life. As education changes and we question our roles / we can all join in laughter, / to break hierarchical trolls.

MAKE YOUR TECH & WEAR IT TOO: Stories from an E-Textile Tailor

His piercing blue eyes dug deep / memories from previous conversations upset my equilibrium/wrecked my concentration and faded any enthusiasm for the task at hand / I felt the dark cloud moving in. I felt disengaged and distant / no recourse for discourse available / I went home, taking a pill to slow my mind / sleep is not sweet / dawn will bring regret.

We had 900 km to drive today. I wanted to do a version of a#feldgang for our July theme but alas. Each stop was taken over by food priorities and scenery features. The road was chewed up at over 110km/he and only the defying skyline can be seen at that pace. Finally the awsesome sunset pulled us up and we could spend some time to consider the day.

Things I noticed on a Front Yard :
* the tiniest of flowers in driveway cracks. There's no way I would have paid attention to them otherwise
* a lone dandelion, with seeds ready to spread. This one is an outlier of the season
* the dead branches of the pine tree, framed underneath, with sky as backdrop, gives a new perspective
* a tree trunk as map, framed close, with crags and valleys
* a chewed leaf, bugs' dinner left uneaten

I went to a fashion parade last night. It was all about keeping the ‘re’ in the cycle of clothes. The back of the head of the lady in the front row appeared in the bottom of all of my photos. She had the most fake, garishly, red dyed hair. It distracted me from the models. Now I am trying to crop her out.
