a few goals for 2013

Taking a page from silvrdragn, I present some of the things I'd like to accomplish in what remains of 2013, theoretically with monthly-ish updates to come:

Chado-related goals: make shiro-an. Carve a bamboo futaoki (lid rest), at least a fushi-nashi (nodeless) one, which should be utterly simple. Practice carving chashaku, which is not. Try repairing my broken Tamba-yaki idojawan.

HacDC-related: be a diligent treasurer. Help Alberto run an Arduino class. Hold an LED cuff-making workshop.

Photography-related: learn how to do long-exposure photography, so I can do things like light painting by skipping a stone with an LED attached. Figure out how to do time-lapse photography. Try HDR.

Related to nothing else: see wisteria in bloom (maybe at the National Arboretum?). Go to—and participate meaningfully in—Burning Man. Get rid of excess clothes. Learn Android programming. Finish carving my Greenland-style kayak paddle. Consider incorporating gender-neutral pronouns into my writing somehow.

I really enjoyed your last cuff making workshop.

Thanks! I'm planning for this next one to be a different style of cuff, made of thick felt and using the coin cell battery as part of the closure mechanism. I just need to figure out for myself how to make one first. :) Are you on the blabber list, or should I try to remember to send you a separate notification once I finally set up the workshop?

I am on the blabber list. What type of felt do you want to use? I have some felt that you can use to make your practice cuff if you would like to pick it up if you are in Baltimore some time. I have some yellow and white.
