Wow Winter Solstice has passed… New Years has passed.
Here we are in the midst of 2014. Seems to be odd to post video and photos from last year. Yet I feel I am constantly playing catch up with posting photos, videos and music…let alone actually sitting down to write something. “We” spend so much of our time trying to record and document the moment. But what is so great about a moment. What does a few seconds of video do for you? Why do we want to be able to listen to that set from that night over and over again? Even though we were not there, and we can only connect with a virtual copy of the recording of someone playing some records in a club. Nevertheless we do it because it is good. It is what we enjoy. Why – is hard to say. But the reality is looking at a photo connects us to a moment – to a feeling – and for some reason I am drawn to post these memories, as a way to have a record of the moments, and feelings and times and places. I hope someone out there is enjoying other than just me…
So in this fresh new year I will post a short video from our Nightgazing party… promise uploads of sets in the near future. and a couple pics from the ice storm! Hope you are staying warm!
Holy wow. What a massive wonderful night full of amazing costumes and crazy fun. Amazing music, video and more!
Here is some photos from the night.
THANK YOU TO ALL THE DANCERS, ARTISTS, SET UP AND TEAR DOWN PEOPLE… PROMISE CREW AND QUARTZ CREATURES FOR THE BONE SCULPTURES!!! (yes they deserve CAPS)
So last February and March we decided to take a trip to Costa Rica with our daughter Zoe who was about 6 months at the time.
Travelling has been a long time passion for both of us and we really wanted to spend some time away from home while Zoe was still young and it was cheap/free to travel with her.
So i have been meaning to post photos and blog about my trip to Costa Rica and have been way to slack in my writing and going through the photos and all of that. In reality there are just WAY too many photos to choose from and so many of them are really good.
SO I think i will just try and post some every week…. and just keeping adding more and more to the story as i GO.
So I went to an amazing gathering over the last few days of 2012 and the first of 2013… it was an amazing place to pass through into a new year. This is my fourth year spending this part of the year in a kids camp, with an octagon shaped lodge with a giant community kitchen. It is an amazing experience co-creating a community vibe for many days in a row…. i have a huge amount of gratitude and love for the organizers and other contributors that made this gathering great!!! If i am lucky i will one day get a copy of my set from the gathering and then i can post that.
peace and happy new year!!!
