Shwedagon Roses

Heading out in a bit to the airpot to start the journey north to the Htamanthi WS. Planes and boats and legs. Image above is from yesterday's visit to Shwedagon. [NOTE: Am moving out of internet contact and this will be my last post for a couple of weeks].


Arrived to Yangon this morning, and, as usual, walked over to the Shwedagon Pagoda to get through some of the jet lag. Lot of re-gilding and repairing going on. [NOTE: I imagine there is a lot of merit associated with repairing the roof of the main pagoda, i.e. the one containing the eight Buddha hairs].



Here We Go Again

Packing the duffel (see Duffel Bag). Back to Yangon, then Mandalay, then Homalin, then a long boat ride to Htamanthi, and, finally, a short boat ride to Nam Sa Bi. Twenty-five days of community forestry in the Upper Chindwin. [NOTE: Goes without saying, but I love my job].


All Melody/#2

Yeah, I know it's Columbus Day, but I have a few things to finish up before heading off to Myanmar tomorrow (see Back To Nam Sa Bi). On the off chance that many of you viewing this are not in the office, I am posting a 13:13 minute clip of Nils Frahm playing two new pieces in the Resident Advisor studio in London. Story is, Frahm stopped by with a Juno, Fender Rhodes, drum machine and tape delay, and performed two brand new songs,"All Melody" and "#2." Happy Columbus Day. 

Route Set

Oldest son, Case (see Case and Phaeroom and Bouldering), is back setting routes at the Go Vertical Indoor Rock Climbing Gym in Philadelphia. [NOTE: And very happy about it].
