Serious social burnout from a loong weekend of exhibition prep, exhibition schmoozing, fella’s gig, games with family, etc. It was all really fun though! Next weekend is going to be just as busy with birthdays, play rehearsals (I’m an amateur sound/light techie), BBQ, and RPGs. Such a busy bee I have become.
Me with my stuff. I am happy and smiling in pictures from the evening, I am just with other people and I don’t want to put those up here…

A terrarium inside of an aquarium! So gorgeous, though I am a bit afraid of what might happen if the spider makes a run for it. To learn more about how terrariums work, check out this amazing Wardian case that has only been watered once in 53 years. ~AR
The “Island Vessel Vivarium” is a terrarium inside an aquarium. Designed by artist Alberto J. Almarza, show-cased at the Geek Arts / Green Innovators Festival in April 2010. Glass blower: Pittsburgh Glass Center.
“As a passionate nature lover, there is nothing more gratifying than observing this active and thriving little ecosystem as if seen through a magnifying glass.” ~Almarza
Living ingredients include moss, violets, a spider, and a centipede for the terrarium, and for the aquarium: Java moss, banana plant, barnacles, ghost shrimp, and zebra danios.
This one is from the bottom of Croagh Patrick ( the mountain that the sculptor was trying to put the hideous statue on top of).
Home. Sometimes I miss it, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I don’t know what I feel…
