Fun Work vs. Work Work
The work here is brutal. I find the days are emotionally fraught. It starts well: make coffee, drive to the visitor’s center to fill up the water jugs, then get to work cleaning, sorting, and hauling trash. At a certain point I get very discouraged. Important is to do one fun thing each day. Above was the fun today: attaching all the metal rings we find to the fence (our friend Lynn suggested it).

Love the photo. Back in the days when I had a job with the DoD located at the base in Twenty Nine Palms, we spent most of one summer on a Marine Corps. project, working from 1000 until 0200-0300 the next day, and then, start over, and repeat. Drank more than 2 qts water per day and never had any sweat, it was so dry. Enjoyed the Desert and the critters that came out at night.

Thank you, Grant! I hope you'll come out and visit.

Anna does most of the writing. Ted does most of the photos. But sometimes we switch. We are repairing a distressed property in 29 Palms, California, and eventually hope to run an artist residency there.
