The thing about having a giant memory card in my camera is I can get slack about downloading the pictures. I think there are about five hundred on there right now! I really need to get on that. But anyway, I found this pic on the camera today, left from some mid-summer photos.
The circle of sunlight is coming down from the yurt dome, almost straight down it looks like, so this picture must have been taken near the Solstice. Luc had set up a ring of dinosaurs around the ring of light—he’s always doing cool things like this—but as he played, the light ring slid away across the floor, leaving his dinos half in, half out of the circle.
The changing location of the sunlight—and moonlight—circle on the floor (and walls) throughout the year is one of the neater bits about living in a yurt.

Primary to navasana. Chatted with Luc about his favorite show for the second half, so breathing and focus were zilch. But mama/little boy time is worth it.

- "Dusi's Wings" April, 2003. . . . "One thing fantasy can do for us is to give shape to the mysterious in the world; another is to make emotional yearning concrete. The early sections of "Dusi's Wings" do just that...there was a strong grasping towards the spiritual in fantasy here that was very promising, and I look forward to reading more by Lassiter." --review, Tangent Online.
