So I'm going to make it official and "take a break from blogging" although I may be checking in and commenting a bit. I get tired of the techno-life sometimes - don't you?
Before I go, let me get these pictures out there and tell you what I've been doing.
Best thing - I've got a cool freelance gig, copy editing and proofreading an academic book on aesthetics and creative spaces in Asian cities. It's exactly the kind of work I like to do, although the theoretical jargon can be a little challenging. Anyway, it'll keep me busy for a couple of weeks, and I've got more potential work in the pipeline. So, whew, I'm earning money!
We've been having a hot summer here - sunny every day for the foreseeable future, so there'll be no change from the shorts and T-shirt and bike helmet!
Last week we went to see a printmaking demonstration - in a parking lot.
Plywood was used for the printing "plates"...
...and the prints were made on sheets.
The "press" was a steam-roller!
It was very cool, except it was very hot. They did a lot of these prints that day - this one was done for one of the sponsors.
A couple of weeks ago we went on a hike in the hills not too far from here. It's quite a climb to a gorgeous spot with amazing views!
