(paxus) We burned the festival grounds today. It was a controlled burn of course and Zeke was the honcho, which marked his return to the project after a much missed absence. I could not help but think as I watched my fellow communards rack fire that these would be perfect images for part of the “This is VIS” slide show.
I’ve never seen a controlled burn before, much less helped make one happen. It was strange watching the flames slowly creep across the grass. There were a couple of exciting moments, but the highly competent crew held It all in place.
I am not much of an outdoorsy type. So me cutting thorns with a huge set of clippers is unusual to say the least.
Pilgrim was a virtuoso with the chain saw. I told Will that people think I love Pilgrim because he can build anything in a hurry, but it is really because he can prune without pausing. I am convinced Pilgrims green thumb will be as important as his hammer swing.
