the China
stills: part 1

June 16, 2010 J and I spent the past few days in a 7 person yurt playing scrabble and admiring the strong backs of the Kazak family who we replaced. We climbed on mountains and rationed toilet paper and spoke about past lives and other places, but not too much since that place, on the banks of a jade lake was too good for music. the week before we wandered the deserts and oases with Zach/Mary turning lazy afternoons into sunbaked walks and crazy chinese tourists into ciphers from another planet. the food was good and the families seemed strong. the week before that week was spent on all night rants and rambles through various eastern cities, long mornings in pagodas and balconies, on river banks in bamboo forests hunting for small adventures and breathing silvery air.

Ah, bamboo. Bamboo makes everything good. Glad you're maintaining the blog. Great pix.
