New new blog

As you can tell, I was not updating my new OK online journal. There was a reason for that so I am starting a new blog. You can contact me directly for the address.

So much of me is still left in Kodiak. I left a lot unfinished, unresolved. Being in Kodiak though was like Limbo.

On Monday, Abby cut her hand and Blackie was injured, all in one day. Abby passed out. Like out. Blackie doesn't deserve anything but easy times after being a trailer park stray all his life.Oy.

I did not get to say goodbye to the island really. Fort Greely was too icy. And I am out of time. Too tired to feel or think.

Avoiding packing perhaps. I am going full steam.

Coming to an end

 Abby's and I time at the beach, with sea creatures, mountain vistas, and tripping on plumbing nestled in the woods of former Forts are coming to an end.

Next stop: New Ulm, Minnesota, where I will be the ED.
I will wrap it up on this online journal and will create a new one:

Our 2D tree. Definitely a new tradition. Although it will be nice to have a real tree next year, we had fun making the 2D tree. Abby enjoyed making up her own ornaments. Note the cat climbing the tree.

 For a whole week it's nothing but Nutcracker.

 Most of the time is spent like this.

 It's hard to focus with that many people jammed in a small space.


Not sure if the giant lily is going to eat Abby or the other way around!

Appropriate, mummy, Frankenstein, Hermione


 Working with Abby to make pottery was very rewarding for me. It pushed me to teach and also to be creative in ways I am normally not. She made all of these pieces. I helped her bead the jellyfish.

There's more cat tiles, but I haven't photographed them.
