I really want a ger (otherwise known as a yurt). Frankly, I don’t know what I’d do with such a thing. I don’t really have space to store it, and I don’t know how I would be able to set it up at the festivals I go to, and maybe the thing would get used five or eight days a year. This seems silly. Nonetheless, I have it in the back of my mind that one day, I want to do the festival thing in style, and have a ger to sleep in, with a comfortable mattress on a viking frame bed. I don’t suppose anyone knows where I could get a viking frame bed, or knows how to make one?
The first day of school was a royal pain, and my computer is giving me hassles. This means I’m going to have to send it in next week for repairs. So I’ll be doing a lot of extra work on my desktop machine, and not having a whole lot of time in the evenings to work on my projects until it gets back. Joy.
The first day of walking in the woods also went well. I managed to meet the kids, take them for their walk, and find the various trees we were supposed to find in an appropriately long length of time. Brian and I have plans to build a bender out in the woods, and use it as a sweat lodge. It should be very cool, and we’re looking forward to making it work. On the other hand, this means I’m losing an hour of free time every afternoon to wandering in the woods. On the one hand it’s good exercise, and on the other, it’s lost writing time. Decisions, decisions — oh, heck, who am I kidding? It’s not a decision, it’s stuff I gotta do. Shikata na gai. There is no other choice
