The Summer of Color: Beginning a New Journey

The last six months have been one hell of a journey, and now that I am back and recuperated (mostly) from my travels, have I got a few stories to tell. I'd love to get into all of it right here, and I'm sure the rambling mess that was hurled onto the screen would be entertaining at the very least. Still, I maintain a semblance of composure, and I prepare for an enormous series of posts and photos showcasing this period of time to be launched over the next few weeks: 

It's going to take months to share, but that's okay, right? I mean, we're buckling down for winter, yes? Which means we not only need something to do when huddling indoors from the frigid darkness but also need inspiration to plan for next year. (I'm already prepping trips for next spring.) So read on to see where this journey is going, and get prepared to feel a little wanderlust. But, first....

Why the "Summer of Color"?

Anyone who knows me well, knows I eschew (I've been using that word a lot...wonder if that means anything....nah) bright colors. I dress in black, gray, and various shades of muted greens. So what could possess me to write an entire series based on a color theme? Well, it all starts, oddly enough, with knitting.

Minute Muse Monday: Leaving the Playa

Take only memories.
Leave only footprints.
~Chief Seattle
Yes, this is a most perfect quote for leaving the Burn. With our self-responsibility and -sustainability philosophy, we must bring in and take out everything. "Leave no trace" is our mantra, but the footprints tell the story of what we do there, and the memories are forever.

Farewell 'til the next Burn!

Hey Gang. I had too many quotes and had to share this one. At this point, I am on the Playa, and I needed to share this one, since it's so apropos...

a piece of soil than, you could say, with a piece of soul."
