Home Again.

John is home. Miracle is not a word I use lightly, I don't believe in miracles in the slightest. But he bounced back, healed rapidly and is good to go. Still healing his trachy hole, needs to rebuild strength, but overall, an amazing recovery. He calls Larry about once a week, kinda cute to listen to the two of them chat in parallel.

Element 11 was four days of rain and mud. I had a tremendous time, but mobility was an issue. The NoCostco was great, but I need to run it a bit tighter. Most folks were gracious about what they took, but some people went whole hog, and others took things for gifts for people not even attending. I don't know how I feel about that. I mean, one gal took necklaces for folks in camp, lovely burners I know, but others took items to give to who would never attend a burn. There is no right or wrong here, but somehow the second set of "gifts" felt off-kilter. But I am glad we made people happy.

I developed a deep hacking asthma cough; Larry wouldn't let me near the fuels or smoke of the big burns. Came home exhausted and am still struggling with energy. My upper lip is completely broken out in cold sores. Ouchie. Love my Denevir.

The art isn't going well, nor the sewing, or planning. Even the housework and bills/paperwork move like molasses. I need to weed. I need to move. I need to be something other than a sad fossilized gnat encased in unforgiving amber. Dull amber at that.

I think setting an item limit is fair, but I think it's OK to take gifts for people. I do it, for my cat-sitter. But not for other people there at the event!
