2010-05: The End Of What Feels Like A Long Journey


while it is good to know
i can carry on
irregardless i resist
to embrace the lone venture
your enduring hospitable warmth
is sort of familiar
enough. that
breaks my melancholy
still not quite a spoonful
makes a cold bed
i gladly wind up
chasing sunlight
although it will not be
until it is dark
i will eventually be
worn and ready
to greet my own face

-writing on my flight back home(SF). Trips in the last 2.5 months:

1 week in LA for Thanksgiving
3 weeks in NC for Christmas
1 week in LA for my baby’s 21st
3 weeks in NC for work

So ready to be home in SF with my bed, my things and my person.

tad 2011-10 & -11: Nothing To See Here

TAD 2011-10 crafting = epic fail this week, but i have been getting my geek on (yayy!). spent my TAD time yesterday taking an electronics class, so nothing to show for it (wait – is there a way to see where ohm's law is now -finally- etched into my brain?). who wants to send me some techshop giftcards?

TAD 2011-11.1 also still working on the followup to ann darrow, but i have made several beginnings now and still unhappy with the results so i can't show you that either.

TAD 2011-11.2 I like keeping my hair outta my face, but haven't yet found a place that doesn't make me feel like i've wasted precious time for a haircut and i struggle parting even with $10 for one. so, once upon a time i bought some haircutting scissors and between my 2-3x/year haircutting visits  probably why I haven't found a good place, yet), i trim my bangs to feel like i got one anyway. it's always a little crooked, but now i can see you better.

tad 2011-09: let’s call it kirigami

i may not have another thing after a busy day today, so here’s my contingent thing (not 30 minutes of work, but it’s what i’ve got right now and maybe all day) … the battery-powered charger i made yesterday fits neatly into this altoids box, but you have to cut out the bottom end for the usb connector to fit through. i traced out the shape of the connector, added space to clear the lid and used some metal cutters (much bigger than i needed, but it was all that was around the house) to cut it and some pliers to bend it in place. in the process of seeing if it would fit, i accidentally broke the connecting leads for the battery, so i will need to resolder that later. meanwhile, tada!


tad 2011-07 & 08: recharged

day 7: i may have hit my low point yesterday – there's always one day during the Thing A Day sprint when i just have nothing. hopefully that was it. i did only sit down at about 11:45 to make something, so that probably had something to do with it…anyway, i looked at a room full of supplies and nothing. moving on…

day 8: went to make:sf tonight to practice my soldering skills to make one of these – it's a portable charger for my phone; takes 2 AA batteries, rechargable OK. got a tour of Tech Shop SF while i was there – this was how i envisioned my dreamhouse, actually. anyone want to gift me a yearlong membership?
