Between working, unpacking, and creating new art, blog updates have been few, though not for the lack of material to write about. I finally finished off the time-lapse video of The Simplicity of Ritual that I completed three years ago, right after setting down this solo road. It's hard, in some ways, to watch it: there are several frames where I'm being quite hysterical, and I can't look at them without having the same emotions I felt when the pictures were taken.


So it's all the more amazing to me the changes that have taken place lately: this blog post, for example, was started a few weeks ago, when I bought a few herb plants, which were the most obvious manifestation of the fact that I have, at long last, began to set down roots again.

Cracklin' Rosie

When I wrote *Deracination* back on Wednesday, December 7, 2011, I wasn't sure I was ever going to want, or be able, to do that again, but here I am.

Ironically, I wanted to finish this post off ten days ago, when I was in southern Ontario for a quick turn-around trip to the in-law family reunion. Most of them hadn't seen me in two years, and while I lost emotional control more in those four days than I have in the last six months, I'm very glad I went.

That they were also happy to see me was obvious by the fact that I was the answer to one of the "how well do you know the family" trivia questions. That alone made it all worthwhile.

Time to go back into the studio, and resume construction on the new project.
