The Renwick meets Burning Man

Washington, D.C.
Saturday, April 14, 2018

I spent the morning at the Renwick enjoying the art of Burning Man with my three college roommates. Back together again after 30 years!

The whole experience seemed vaguely oxymoronic to have all that crazy, counter-culture stuff there at the lovely, stately Renwick, but there you have it. All kinds of wonderful human-powered vehicles, lights shows, videos of the actual event, and fantastical creations of all kinds.

I will never make it to Burning Man, but I REALLY enjoyed the exhibit--and was inspired, even!

Pink snow

February Advent calendar

Seattle, Washington
Friday, February 9, 2018

About two weeks ago, A got the idea to make a sort of Advent calendar--for the month of February. We each sat down and thought up a month's worth of fun "tasks" for each other: writing haikus about the rabbits, searching for chocolate, picking up litter--all kinds of random, silly stuff...

A's Girl Scout troop finally got organized enough to get their sashes together and, voila, we finally have three generations of sashes to show for it: A, grandma, and I!

Back to the roller rink

Seattle, Washington

Spent two super fun hours with the girls zooming around the Southgate roller rink. I highly recommend it, for young and old...
