Well, well, well.
Another new year, so here's a long overdue update:
- I messed up my rt. ankle while camping in Yosemite.
- Jess and I moved to Oakland because Jess got a job at the Bay Area Discovery Museum. (address is new, phone is the same).
- the 1 min video I made for/with Joe Uhl screened at the Film Arts Foundation's 30th anniversary party as one of the top 10.
- I'm working part time to help editing along on a documentary about victims of unexploded ordnance in Vietnam.
- The compost video is done, and better than I thought it would be. Not yet in distribution though.
- Blurb.com is really cool. Jessica and I made a wedding album with it. The product is better than you imagine it will be.
- Other things are still in a sort of "behind the scenes" limbo which may change my life drastically, or may just be a depressing episode.
- I seem to be in a prime location for bonsai and tai chi. The Oakland Chinatown is VIBRANT. I think my ankle's just about good enough to make tai chi possible again, so I'm looking forward to that.
- Jess enrolled me in a class that is going to make sure that I work out the next variation in the light sculpture projects (opaque objects). I've also got some better ideas for materials for the semi-transparent objects. Anyone nearby want to be the subject of a sculptural portrait?
- I'm going to be an -ee this year. Not an -er. This has been my mom's suggestion since Alicia and I were small: Be an employee. So, I'm not going to start any major self-employment activities this year, and instead will dedicate myself to "OPP" (other people's projects). I'm still wrapping some old stuff up, and for most of the spring, I will be only part time employed outside of the house.
