Taking the tour at Zzyzx with High Desert Test Sites… What an amazing location!
Hey all you weavers – only you will be able to look at this image and understand how truly efed up our warp is. Those are rocks hanging from some of the threads that are too stretched out to shim!
This is one single weaving. Love how it almost looks like illustrations on the page of a book…
Two things I'll miss most… Taco truck two blocks away (why even bother cooking?) and Crest Hardware.
Still have total desert reflexes… Saw this pod out of the corner of my eye and totally jumped because I thought it was a snake. Anyone else do that?
Hanging out with James Trainor, talking about climate change and where we are all going to live in 30 years. Guess my part of the desert isn't at the top of that list?
Oh wow, just finished reading Kip’s latest selection “Burro Bill and Me” for the HDTS desert book club. Was expecting a standard settler’s memoir, but this book was super intense and even harrowing at times… in a great way. Also there was a personally relevant subtext throughout Edna’s story that describes the various ways that they slowly departed with all of their material possessions and in exchange accumulated freedom, resilience and self sufficiency. Book club meets next Monday at Copper Mountain Community Center in North Joshua Tree. Kip says you don’t have to read the book – but it’s a winner, and you still have a few days to take it all in! #highdeserttestsites #hdts
Maybe it's because of the metaphysical stone collection?
My only problem with visiting New York is that I love my apartment so much that I never want to leave it! 4:30 pm and still cocooning in my pjs.
