I did good, cont. again

…Part Three in a three-part series… In the normal state of affairs, I would have blogged in great detail about this whole thing, because I’m incredibly wonky about process and I would have loved to share every excruciating detail about How I Did It, but in this case there were hippie-feelings involved.  Just posting the […]

I did good

You may have noticed, in my gargantuan list of activities from yesterday, that a great many of them had to do with Alchemy, our fall regional Burning Man-style gathering.  Here’s what happened. Last spring, we were on new property over in the Great Eastern Wastelands of Georgia and were thinking we had found a new, […]

Oldie but goodie

Again, on Facebook… I’ve actually blogged about this before… A snark (originally posted 04/27/2007) This email arrived in my box at school this morning: I wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone? What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets? What if we flipped […]

Sir Christémas: so far, so good

I had pulled together several texts last night which I found on The Hymns and Carols of Christmas, a pretty exhaustive site. If you’d like to second guess me (other than the hundreds I didn’t even look at), here’s a list: http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/a_a_a_a_nunc_gaudet_maria.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/child_divine.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/little_children_wake_and_listen.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/sir_christmas.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/wrapt_in_the_silence_of_the_nigh.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/yule_days.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/sleep_my_little_jesus.htm I really liked the Yule Days one, […]

Garden update

You will recall that we left the front garden a little bare, though tilled: Finally the big order from The Growers Exchange arrived, Friday afternoon.  This was a bit problematic, since once one unboxes these plants, one is supposed to let them sit out of direct sun for a day or two before planting them, […]

Garden!

You know how it is.  The front garden is getting ratty-looking and as a gift for Christmas you give your Lovely  First Wife a complete revamp of the area. And then you get an email from The Growers Exchange offering 25% off an order for native cultivars, and then you see some interesting-looking herbs that […]

This week

This morning, I will begin laying out the map for Euphoria, the spring Burn here in Georgia.  You may recall the epic journey from last fall when I designed the burn from scratch and then had to place 3,000 hippies, all of whom wanted “flat land, next to the road, near the tree line, away […]
