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 kids.family 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.
