The latest ridiculous project: Brought this '64 Fireball 13' home with us on July 1. In two weeks, we gutted it, did a simple rewire, buttoned up the wall panels, and painted the inside. For Burning Man this year, we're just putting in clothing storage and a bed. And I'm painting the accent arrows so it looks a little more loved. :)

Next spring, we'll tear it all out and fix it up with a proper kitchen and a bunk for Lydia. She says she wants to go to the Grand Canyon.

Had to set a loop and re-upload.
The stars behind her are bokeh points that have been shaped by a 16mm star cutout that I placed in front of my lens. Doing some experimenting for our family holiday photo...

Statement that really struck me yesterday: "Being able to not think about it for a while is the definition of privilege." Food for thought.

“‘Kindness’ covers all of my political beliefs. No need to spell them out. I believe that if, at the end, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn't always know this and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.”

-Roger Ebert, 1942-2013
