The 35mm rocket motor was fired today. It exploded due to overpressure shortly after ignition. While
it's a shame, it demonstrates the design was overambitious and not workable. I plan to redesign a
simplified, much more readily-made motor in the near future.

Things are shuffling about here as my use changes. I'm turning it into a personal portfolio - the
old random idea and image dump will remain but the front page will be a gallery of captioned
images - I'd like to self host but Flickr may be more convenient. Finished projects will get a page
if they're good enough.

There are a lot of amazing things about Heimeji Castle but the scent is what surprised me. It is
wonderfully woody, not rotten wood and damp stone - dry, old worn wood. Storey after storey of
fine, heavy and careful woodwork. I'll make a gallery for it.

Aside: tactile, dangerous, dark, light, joinery, surfaces and the well.

On the road to Warrnambool, in a place I like - metallic chatter of the diesel and the boom and whistle
of air through the mirrors.

Noise has a texture like the fields spreading out all around, dense and even and a little prickly.

Solid bumps scattered about sending the wheels bouncing and big dark silhouettes of cows

March of wire fence flickering past casting a long shadow and my favourite colour - afternoon sun
through fresh grass.

I'm on tour, 3 shows to go - Lighthouse Theatre, Hamilton PAC, Portland AC.

Then go home for a couple of days - will it be too soon to be back at the airport?

"...there is a part of my high-school globo-claustrophobia that has never left
me, and in some ways only seems to intensify as time creeps along . What
haunts me is not exactly the absence of literal space so much as a deep
craving for metaphorical space: release, escape, some kind of open-ended
freedom"

-how good is No Logo? its great, like a leunig book, just open it and all this
sense and truth tumbles out. also makes a good pillow or packing material!

DARK MOFO O-night, Skywhale on the way and Louis and Bebe next week.
Bringing a bit of light and colour to dull skies and old halls.

Today I uploaded some images, which isn\'t really remarkable at all.
But I also edited electrosonic2.html to include said pictures
because they are of some tiny germ of PROGRESS

its been not so much difficult to make the next step, but difficult to get back into the headspace to be
sure what that step was - more than a year has passed and i have many more things to get up in my
headspace now, there simply isn\'t as much room!

I made a new computer, causing a departure from this Mac and trips into a noisy old hard drive, where
I found pictures i\'d forgotten and feelings i\'d parked. most of all I missed writing - creating words and
putting up pictures - so i\'ve resolved to do more of it.

CORRECTION: My posting system IS working YAY!

though thats no excuse. Hopefully I can join the Tribes Tribe soon,
find all those images that never made it off my old computer and set them free!

Priorities however feature a lot of Journey Girl, a bit of house work, and notionally Home Work
[different from house work, much more worse] and the outside chance of casting some rocket fuel...
