The Musings of a Nomadic Artist in the 21st Century
The above is what a dear friend posted on her Facebook status a couple weeks back and it stuck with me. I’m feeling it too. I adore this time of year! The snap in the air means extra blankets at night and warm drinks and campfires. The time of year means apples and squash are in season and warming spices get put into apple cider by the spoonful. The arrival of Halloween means the rest of the holidays I adore are right around the corner.
The Roaming Pint were here last week and we got to spend some evenings over beer and other assorted geekiness when our respective work days were done. It was lovely to reconnect with some NuRVer friends once again and we look forward to more time together after the New Year when we gather en masse in Cedar Key, FL.
Tomorrow Best Beloved and I go out to see the elk for the first time this season. We will probably go again at the beginning of October to celebrate our three year Nomadiversary, but tomorrow we will be celebrating a milestone of progress on the Overlander: The belly pan is complete. The trailer is now self contained and can be worked on rain or shine from here on in.
Right now the air is a little chilly and Brundlefly is letting me know all about it. Thankfully she has a really cool custom knit blanket that my fabulous sister-in-law made for her. It is her Favorite Thing Ever. Except maybe for the propane lamp, which she sits under like Cleopatra beneath long handled fans.
Friday I head back to the DC Metro Area for my final two weeks of tattooing in the northeast in 2012. After that we are headed south with the sunshine.
