Trepidation is the key.
Finding lunatics on the way is a welcome turn of the butterflies in the stomach.

But right now I´ll rather have consistency over trepidation, clear action over daydreaming. This too shall pass?

It really feels like the time to invest some drive into the character that appears on my pillow every morning. Or on the couch. Or on the floor.
So there.


My zeroday approaching, much more aware of the bungee cord that keeps me here and of the different threads that make it. Tendrils of a climbing vine now, what with all the getting closer to Notably Awesome Taskers/Incredibly Great People that congregate here.

Is about time that I test if I have what it takes to spin drive into stuff that lasts more than an hour. Walk the walk. Wave the flag. Wear the coat of arms.
With great gifts come great responsibilities. Let´s see how it goes. It might be an exercise in tightrope but one couldn´t have a better net.



Everyday life A hollow feeling, exodus in the air. It might just be what is needed, easier to let go.
A sloooow season, Era, that´s what it will be. Autumm anyway. Harvest of the right perspective, things will be set up deliberately and will grow if they were meant to. MXØ. A slow seed. Maybee one of those that need to be in a fire first so it can then sprout.

Oh, and the image on the task page thumbnail? And in the webpage? A fantastic poster that anna one made, just like that.

Um, the technically correct term is "chile en nogada", but hey, that´s the way language evolves, isn´t it ?
anna one, on the other hand, had an amazing Huarache con nopal y cecina, a sandal shaped marvel that I believe she had had once and afterwards had tried to find out what the hell its name was for years...
Shrimp? really?

You have a llama (a-llama-for-Christ-sakes!), plus a bunch of goats and beautiful trees. And the thing you choose to do is to add plastic to that ecosystem? And calling that a Biome task? I'm not sure why but there is something great about it. Counterintuitive but great.

I think I loved the stencils/drawings/writings on the walls the most: fellow attentive tresspassers, nodding/winking. And that fiery red vine. How come you´re not in the Societé Photographique?
Hardcore, you guys are.
