i am an unrequited astronomer, pretend patient, gentle adventurer, pedal enthusiast, recovering calligrapher, occasional thespian and unfinished poet living in portland, oregon. contacting me via email is usually a good idea.
today was more burning man buying & sorting, though i took michael to bridgetown first & then we stopped at the hollywood burger bar (yum! except i was less impressed with the chocolate malt). among other things, i now own zip-leg pants with lots of pockets (yay!), a small nalgene "children's lit" bottle from powell's, and the coolest. headlamp. ever. i want to wear it all the time! i'm wearing and using all this stuff now so i can get used to it before i'm distracted by the playa. i'm also experimenting with hair-tending actions so i don't have to figure that out on the playa, either.
steve, bill & brian have felt compelled to tell me when mars will reach its zenith so i'll be sure to catch it during burning man (aug. 27: due south and tilt your head 45 degrees). thanks, guys!
